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.

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

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

I had an ovarian cyst last month, and then i started my cycle on the 17th. I had no cycle, septemnber. I did have a brown discharge on random days.?

I had an ovarian cyst last month, and then i started my cycle on the 17th. I had no cycle, septemnber. I did have a brown discharge on random days.?

Yes its common: It is common to have irregular cycles if you have ovarian cysts. Some women will not ovulate thus not have a cycle for months if they have a large ovarian cyst. I recommend you see your ob/gyn if this persists for more than three months. As long as the brown discharge isn't foul smelling this is unlikely an infection and is related to not having your menstrual cycle. ...Read more
