I have a burst ovarian cyst, how to treat?

Rest and Ibuprofen: When an ovarian cyst ruptures, the cyst fluid irritates your insides causing pain. Usually this pain lasts only a few days and then goes away on its own. It is usually treated with something like Ibuprofen to help with the pain as your body reabsorbs the fluid. If you have pain that lasts for months, its unlikely to be from a ruptured ovarian cyst. See your doctor. ...Read more

I'm 47, in perimenopause, had burst ovarian cyst. Dr wants me to take Lo Loestrin FE 1-10 for 6 months. Is it safe? Have no risk factors, but PSVT.

Unclear why/not safe: Your real, significant risks in taking contraceptive pills at this point in your life (age 47, cardiac arrhythmias...) seem to outweigh the minimal, questionable benefits of suppressing your ovulation (OCPunfortunately will not be effective in preventing another ovarian cyst)Depending on the "pathology of your burst ovarian cyst" which I presume was removed surgically, recurrence is unlikely. ...Read more

Most Unusual: In 23 years as a colon and rectal surgeon I have not seen an anal cyst cause paralysis, so this is very unusual.

If this is is irregular could be caused by vaginitis, cervicitis etc. based on your age however, this is more likely due to the changing patterns of your reproductive hormonal status which is normal. In other to be certain, I recommend a pelvic ultrasound and a GYN exam. Hope this helps ...Read more
