How do i know when fluid has leaked into my abdomen from an ovarian cyst rupture?

Hard to say: If the fluid leak is small, you may not feel anything. If large, can cause abdominal pain which gradually eases over the next 24-48 hours.

A 19-year-old female asked:

Can ovarian cyst rupture affect other organs in my abdomen ?

Unlikely: I've never heard of an ovarian cyst rupture causing other problems with abdominal organs. Having said that, there can always be problems with the formation of scar tissue due to ovarian rupture. If you've worried that your sister has ruptured, see your doctor for a repeat ultrasound.
