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.

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

I had an ovarian cyst rupture 3 weeks ago how long will the pain & discharge last untill back to normal !? & the fluid when will it go away ?

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

How long will menopause last?? I'm 31 y/o & had a total hysterectomy 4 weeks ago. I had it due to ovarian cysts & the family history risk of cancer

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

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
