Usually nothing: Ovarian cysts are normal; we only become concerned if you have too few, too many, or if they are large and/or solid depending on the age. Cysts need to rupture each month in order to release an egg (ovulation). Depending of the quality of the cyst, you may experience bleeding and or pain. Sometimes, you will not notice it unless an ultrasound reveals suggestive findings.
