2 weeks: The corpus luteum is the cyst that occurs after a woman ovulates it typically stays present for 10- 16 days. The cyst comes every moth but should not last longer than 16 days. Sometimes the cyst can have internal bleeding and can cause pain. I suggest you contact your doctor to disuse this and it treatment ...Read more

How long should the irritation from an ovarian cyst last. I have one burst about 6 weeks ago and still having sever pain around my ovary.

6-8 weeks: Normally, a ruptured cyst resolves in 6-8 wks. It depends on the size of the cyst and how much fluid spilled. Your body has to reabsorb the fluid. Sometimes, scar tissues forms as a result and causes chronic pain. Wait 2 more weeks, if not better, go see your gynecologist. You probably need a repeat ultrasound to be sure it's gone. If the pain is severe, go now. ...Read more

How long does the pain caused by an ovarian cyst and an ovarian cyst rupture normally last?

Rupture - few days: If an ovarian cyst ruptures, the resulting pain should only last a day or few days at most. If an ovarian cyst is causing pain itself, the pain may last until the cyst goes away - the following monthly cycle, or surgery if that is eventually needed. ...Read more

So sorry : I'm so sorry you had to go through that. Those can be very very painful. If you're 3w post rupture, the pain should be getting better by now. You may want to give it another 7 to 10 days, and if the pain is still severe consider seeing your doctor for a repeat ultrasound to make sure everything looks normal. I don't know if the discharge is related to the rapture at all. They could be separate issues. ...Read more

I need some information on hemorrhagic ovarian cysts. Doctor says I have one. And I'm just wondering how long it and the pain will last etc?

Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts: Haemorrhagic ovarian cysts (HOCs) usually result from haemorrhage into a corpus luteum or other functional cyst. Radiographic features are variable depending on the age of the haemorrhage. They typically resolve within eight weeks. Patients may present with sudden-onset pelvic pain, pelvic mass, or they may be asymptomatic and the HOC is an incidental finding 4. A haemorrhagic or a ruptured ovarian cyst is the most common cause of acute pelvic pain in an afebrile, premenopausal woman presenting to the emergency room 5. They can occur during pregnancy. HOCs typically develop as a result of ovulation. Secondary to a hormone response the stromal cells surrounding a maturing Graafian follicle become more vascular, and after the oocyte has been expelled, the Graafian follicle develops into a corpus luteum with a highly vascular and fragile granulosa layer, which ruptures easily, forming a HOC 4. A cystic structure that does not convincingly satisfy the criteria for a benign cyst cannot be considered a cyst Differential considerations on ultrasound include: cystic ovarian neoplasm: the most helpful feature in distinguishing ovarian neoplasms from haemorrhagic cysts are papillary projections nodular septa colour Doppler flow in the cystic structure endometrioma typically contains uniform low level internal echoes with a hypervascular wall on Doppler ultrasound. more often multiple on MRI, endometrioma shows high signal in T1 and low signal in T2WIs and should be evaluated with a short interval follow-up US or MRI ...Read more

The rest of .....: your life! Thirrty-one is very young to have your ovaries removed and you will need hormone replacement therapy, likely, for your entire life in order to prevent bone thinning and, probably, heart disease. The symptoms of ovarian deficiency would be most severe right now, but you are 20 years away from natural menopause. Even if symptoms improve you will still be in menopause. Good wishes:) ...Read more
