I have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and they said its starting to leak if I get surgery what are the chances in having a child?

I have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and they said its starting to leak if I get surgery what are the chances in having a child?

Likely very good: At the time of ovulation, there will always be a cyst about an inch in diameter. That cyst will rupture (and leak) to release the egg, which could be fertilized if you are sexually active and without protection. After ovulation the cyst may enlarge up to 3 or 4 inches, and still be normal. Before having surgery for an ovarian cyst, see your gynecologist, most ovarian cysts do not require surgery. ...Read more

Can an ovarian cyst leak and cause a watery discharge and foul odor that is not "fishy"?

Can an ovarian cyst leak and cause a watery discharge and foul odor that is not "fishy"?

No. Other causes: An ovarian cyst may form naturally as part of a functioning menstrual cycle. If it leaks/ruptures, cyst fluid is released into the pelvic cavity. No ovarian cyst causes leakage from the vagina. Discharge from the vagina could be caused by a variety of things. Some are infections, others are bacterial overgrowth (Bacterial Vaginosis). Vaginal douching is not recommended. Seek an MD visit for exam. ...Read more

Depends: Ovarian cysts are fluid filled sacs close to the ovaries. Some contain watery fluid while others can contain blood/debris.

I have had a 10cm ovarian cyst for about eight years. I went to ER and was told the cyst was now 6cm. and leaking. What now?

Is it possible for a ruptured complex ovarian cyst to heal and then continue to grow? Mine is still there after 8 weeks and no longer leaking fluid.

Is it possible for a ruptured complex ovarian cyst to heal and then continue to grow? Mine is still there after 8 weeks and no longer leaking fluid.

Caution is needed: It is rather difficult to tell from a sonographic exam if a "complex ovarian cyst" is benign (hemorrhagic corpus luteum, an endometrioma, a dermoid or other ) or is a malignant ovarian tumor. Laparoscopic surgery or abdominal exploratory surgery is unfortunately the only reliable way to find out. A careful reevaluation and consultation with a Gyn Oncologist seem advisable at this point. ...Read more
