A 40-year-old female asked:
How long does it take to feel better after having an ovarian cyst rupture? i had one rupture and it is now 4 days later & it still hurts really badly

One week to 10 days: The fluid in the spontaneously ruptured ovarian cyst has to be absorbed by the peritoneum( inside lining of the body cavity) and until it does, the fluid will serve as an irritant and therefore- pain.
