Ovarian cysts: Surprisingly, most of the time when an ovarin cyst ruptures they is little consequence. There can be 1 or 2 days of discomfort. Sometimes, however, a cyst may bleed internally. Occasionally, i will need to operative on a patient with a bleeding cyst to relieve pain or stop the bleeding.
