Unlikely, ?family hx: At 31, women's ovaries make female hormones and "cycle" even though there's no uterus (hysterectomy) to show cycling through bleeding. Every woman gets cysts on ovaries at times -- it is how we develop eggs, but our ovaries "go overboard, " make too much fluid by the egg. If it breaks open, releases fluid, blood=pain; gets better on its own. Family history of ovary cancer = see md! good luck!
