There is really: nothing much to do, except maybe an analgesic for pain. Once the cyst has ruptured, it will generally resolve.

A 48-year-old member asked:

Why do ovarian cysts burst?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
Specializes in Gynecology
Bleeding: Most cysts don't burst actually. A corpus luteum bursts as it releases an egg, which is part of normal ovulation. The "ruptured cyst" is actually bleeding into the corpus luteum after the cyst naturally ruptures, which can be quite painful for many months. But other kinds of cysts basically never burst, and in fact the ovary can stretch quite huge without rupturing.

A 34-year-old female asked:

If a dermoid ovarian cyst bursts what could happen?

Dr. R. Wayne Inzer
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Pain, adhesions.: A dermoid cyst is full of a oil like substance and often hair and other debris that can cause a lot of internal irritation/inflammation. This can lead to something called adhesions, where the internal organs stick together. All of this will cause immediate pain. If the rupture is during surgery, and rapid suction/cleanup is performed, the results are usually very good.

Cyst: After it burst, you will form what its called a corpus luteum cyst and eventually will have your period again, that is part of the normal menstrual cycle. Cysts/follicles majority of the time 'burst' physiologically.

I have a burst ovarian cyst, how to treat?

Rest and Ibuprofen: When an ovarian cyst ruptures, the cyst fluid irritates your insides causing pain. Usually this pain lasts only a few days and then goes away on its own. It is usually treated with something like Ibuprofen to help with the pain as your body reabsorbs the fluid. If you have pain that lasts for months, its unlikely to be from a ruptured ovarian cyst. See your doctor.

What happens when ovarian cysts are bursting?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Charles Whiting

Fluid is absorbed: An ovarian cyst is simply a fluid collection that develops in an ovarian follicle. When a cyst breaks open, the fluid goes into the abdomen where it is absorbed by the body. You can sometimes have some minor discomfort if the cyst fluid is irritating to your internal organs. Your ovary is very good at healing itself when this happens and there usually are not any long-term problems.
