PCOS: The cysts formed in PCOS are incomplete ovulations, as they frequently do not rupture "on their own", but remain and enlarge the affected ovaries. Large ovarian "follicle cysts" can rupture. See your gyn provider, as the "treatment" for PCOS, (unless pregnancy is desired) is usually oral bcp's or the equivalent to suppress ovarian cyst formation, and to prevent changes in the endometrium.
