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 more

If i did have an ovarian cyst rupture, how long does the pain last? I am completing 2 days. Appendicitis and kidney stones were ruled out.

If i did have an ovarian cyst rupture, how long does the pain last? I am completing 2 days. Appendicitis and kidney stones were ruled out.

3-5days: 3-5 days is typical. But the pain should always be gradually getting better. If it gets worse at any time, you should seek care again. Also it is 100% important that pregnancy is not a possible cause of the symptoms. ...Read more

Severe ovarian cyst pain i was diagnosed with ovarian cysts 13 months ago, in the ER they thought it was appendicitis. I hadn't had any severe pain since my diagnosis until this last month. I had mirana placed 25 months ago. I've been to my gynecologist t

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?

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

Most of the time, no: The eggs in your ovaries develop each month from puberty to menopause. The release of the egg is usually not noticed by women.

I have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and they said its starting to leak if I get surgery what are the chances in having a child?

Likely very good: At the time of ovulation, there will always be a cyst about an inch in diameter. That cyst will rupture (and leak) to release the egg, which could be fertilized if you are sexually active and without protection. After ovulation the cyst may enlarge up to 3 or 4 inches, and still be normal. Before having surgery for an ovarian cyst, see your gynecologist, most ovarian cysts do not require surgery. ...Read more

No ovarian cyst causes leakage from the vagina. Discharge from the vagina could be caused by a variety of things. Some are infections, others are bacterial overgrowth (Bacterial Vaginosis). Vaginal douching is not recommended. Seek an MD visit for exam. ...Read more
