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

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

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
