Any irritation : Of the peritoneal lining of the abdominal cavity is peritonitis. An ovarian cyst can bleed when it ruptures, and blood can cause a local peritonitis. But this is way different from bacterial peritonitis, which is what results from perforated GI organ, like appendix. These are much worse, and can actually be fatal. So seriousness depends on the source and type of peritonitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: If a female has questionable ovarian pathology a pelvic exam is useful because ovaries can be palpated for the most part. If noted, workup should continue.

No: A simple cyst has a very specific benign appearance, while a cystadenocarcinoma usually has characteristics that are pathognomonic for a complex mass. A benign hemorrhagic cyst may resemble a worrisome cystadenoca. If you are worried about an ovarian cyst, talk to your doctor. You can do an ultrasound in 4-6 weeks. If it is a cancer, it will not be the same size or have the same characteristics. ...Read more
Trauma, over-filling: An ovarian cyst (a liquid-filled lump on the surface of an ovary) that keeps growing can get to several inches in diameter. Such a cyst could rupture from continued enlargement (like over-filling a water balloon) or from blunt trauma, which would likely cause great abdominal pain with internal bleeding, plus an ambulance ride to the emergency room. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can chronic appendicities cause pelvic pain ? Or can that be due to my ovarian cyst rupture a month ago & late period ?
Onset of pain.: On physical examination, it is often very difficult to distinguish a ruptured right ovarian cyst from appendicitis; however, with a ruptured cyst, the onset of the pain is typically "hyperacute", whereas, with appendicitis the pain often begins like a typical "stomach ache" in the upper or mid abdomen before "moving" to the right lower abdomen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Go to your doctor. : Self diagnosis is very risky, especially with appendicitis. Go to your doctor or the er. A ct would be the best test to distinguish between a cyst and appendicitis. Get checked though because if it is appendicitis, delay in diagnosis can lead to rupture which can cause fertility problems in the future, or even death. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I thought my severe pain was appendicitis, but turned out to be an ovarian cyst. I'm in excrutiating pain w/a consistant lowgrade fever. Worry or not?
Sharp pain in lower right side but down near hip, close to pubic region. More likely ovarian cyst or appendicitis?

I : I am very concerned about several things here. That is way too much Ibuprofen (advil and Motrin are other words for ibuprofen). Taking 800 mg every 6 hours for a few days is a lot, but taking 800 mg every two hours is very concerning, and can cause side effects with your stomach and your kidneys. You need to be immediately evaluated for this pain and irregular bleeding. It is not normal. Sometimes these symptoms can occur in the first few months after a mirena, (levonorgestrel) but you state you are 25 months out, so these symptoms are very abnormal. Please have a complete gynecological evaluation. You likely need an imaging study such as an ultrasound. There are other pain medications that you can be treated with. Please be seen immediately for your symptoms. ...Read more
Diagnosed w/a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Everyone (ER docs) thought appendicitis.CT &ultra sound showed cyst. High WBC. Severe pain again. Any advice?
Pelvic abscess: The high WBC count worries me. Hemorrhagic cyst may be associated with an abscess. It may not have been infected before but is now infected (abscess is usually due to a focal bacterial infection). I suspect that your doctor put you on antibiotics. If you are getting worse on the antibiotics, they may not be working. Call your doctor right away to let the doctor know it is worsening. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
