How can you tell if you have an ovarian cyst..does it rupture and leak fluid during your ovulation times? will there be blood in mucus also?

Ultrasound: to see a cyst you need to take a look on ultrasound. sometime you see it and sometimes you might see a lot of fluid around that shows the cyst already burst open. it is possible to bleed but that is not common
