Yes!: Yes, you can have cysts on your ovaries that may rupture and cause pain. If you see your doctor regularly and are followed with ultrasounds, you most likely do not need to worry. However, if you have not seen a doctor yet, please don't assume! the symptoms of an ovarian cyst are very similar to more serious problems, like normal pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, appendicitis, etc. Please see a doctor!

Yes: Ruptured ovarian cysts are quite common. We can diagnose them with ultrasound, and usually use nsaids (like ibuprofen) to help. If women keep getting them, they sometimes end up on oral contraceptives. Talk to your doctor and come up with a solid plan of care to follow.

Yes. : Ovarian cysts may sometimes rupture. This can cause abdominal pain, especially if there is bleeding into the cyst. Often the symptoms can be very similar to those of appendicitis.
