See Answer: The ovaries are dynamic organs, with developing follicles that mature, “rupture” – and release the egg at about 22-25mm, and regress. This physiology may cause “mittelschmerz” or ovulation pain that could last for a few days. This is not uncommonly accompanied by some slight fluid in the cul –de - sac or adnexal areas of the pelvis. If symptoms or concern persist please see your dr. To insure. ...Read more

My 15 yr old daughter's CT scan & ultrasound shows a right complex ovarian cyst, septated 6cm. 1st appt Monday seeing Gyn Dr. What is usually done?
