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

A vaginal ultrasound can potentially cause a very small of amount of bleeding could also be the cause of the discharge. It could be related to one or both, and is not a cause for concern. ...Read more
