Feels like my ovaries r a computer and my cysts r a virus. Why do ovarian cysts cause pregnancy symptoms like bloating, weight gain & breast soreness?

Hormones: You produce a cyst every month. The cyst or follicle is what houses your egg. This cells of the cyst produce your female hormones. It is these hormones that are causing the symptoms. The cysts are biologically doing their job to try and get you pregnant every month.
