Dr. Mark Kuhnke answered:

What type of ovarian cyst when ruptured can be mistaken with appendicitis?

Corpus luteum

Ovarian_cyst
The most common would be the corpus luteum cyst, that which can develop in an ovary after egg delivery. However, any cyst which ruptures into the abdominal cavity can cause irritation of the pelvis and right lower quadrant, and is in the differential diagnosis of RLQ pain in a female. good luck.

Dr. Lydia Collins answered:

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

Open-uri20130208-16087-p12m72
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.

Had a pain on my rt side went to er cause I couldn't stand it any longer turned out to be an ovarian cyst it ruptured 3mos later am having same pain?

Cyst Vs. appendix

Abdominal_pain
Since it's at your right side do not assume its an Ovarian Cyst again. IT may be another Ovarian cyst, or appendicitis or something else. Do not wait , see your Doctor, get CT scan and urine test.

Dr. Dan Lister answered:

How do i know if i have appendicitis or ovarian cyst leaking?

Go to your doctor.

Appendicitis
Self diagnosis is very risky, especially with appendicitis. Go to your doctor or the ER. A CT would be the best test to distinguish between a cyst and appendicitis. Get checked though because if it is appendicitis, delay in diagnosis can lead to rupture which can cause fertility problems in the future, or even death.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

What are the symptoms of appendicitis vs ovarian cyst? 

Onset of pain.

Ovarian_cyst
On physical examination, it is often very difficult to distinguish a ruptured right ovarian cyst from appendicitis; however, with a ruptured cyst, the onset of the pain is typically "hyperacute", whereas, with appendicitis the pain often begins like a typical "stomach ache" in the upper or mid abdomen before "moving" to the right lower abdomen.

Severe ovarian cyst pain I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts 13 months ago, in the ER they thought it was appendicitis. I hadn't had any severe pain since my diagnosis until this last month. I had mirana placed 25 months ago. I've been to my gynecologist t

I

I am very concerned about several things here. That is way too much ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin are other words for ibuprofen). Taking 800 mg every 6 hours for a few days is a lot, but taking 800 mg every two hours is very concerning, and can cause side effects with your stomach and your kidneys. You need to be immediately evaluated for this pain and irregular bleeding. It is not normal. Sometimes these symptoms can occur in the first few months after a Mirena, but you state you are 25 months out, so these symptoms are very abnormal. Please have a complete gynecological evaluation. You likely need an imaging study such as an ultrasound. There are other pain medications that you can be treated with. Please be seen immediately for your symptoms.

Does a ruptured ovarian cyst cause a lot of internal bleeding?

Not usually.

Ovarian_cyst
Typically, this type of bleeding is minimal and self-limited. A notable exception is changes related to an ectopic pregnancy.
