I have two ovarian cyst that have ruptured and caused stomach infections. Would it have an impact on my fertility and future pregnancy?
It might: Depends on cause, treatment (surgery?), etc. Maybe tests already were done or planned to evaluate for fallopian tube damage (laparoscopy, ultrasound, etc). Discuss with your gynecolgist and/or infertility specialist. Ask if "infected ovarian cyst" was a euphemism for pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or tubo-ovarian abscess, which may cause more tube damage than simple infected cysts. Good luck! ...Read more

Had an ovarian cyst rupture 2mnths ago on my left side, having exact symptoms one right side! Should I go to the ER? Appendix was removed already
Give It 24 Hours: Well, look at it this way: when your ovarian cyst ruptured they did an ultrasound, right? And that must have included both ovaries, right? And it seems you survived, right?

Better? Hooray! ...Read more
