I ruptured my left ovarian cyst how long does this severe pain suppose to last?

I ruptured my left ovarian cyst how long does this severe pain suppose to last?

Really varies: It depends upon whether or not the cyst was simple/fluid filled versus blood filled and how big it was. It is also important to check to be sure there is no ongoing bleeding from a blood filled cyst and to be sure the cyst was not the result of an infection/abscess. All other things being equal it should be improving over a week or two at most. See your doctor again if worsening. ...Read more

No specific time : How do you know your daughter has a cyst? Was it diagnosed by ultrasound? Many cysts resolve by themselves, especially if it is a follicular cyst. However, if it is hemorragic or there are multiple cysts, it may not resolve without hormonal therapy (i.e. Birth control pills). I would go see your daughter's pediatrician or a gynecologist to have the cyst and pain further evaluated. ...Read more

Plain English: The best way to ask a doctor is to say clearly what you want, which seems surprisingly difficult for many people. State clearly, let him/her discuss pros/cons with you. Severe pain and endometriosis is a good indication for surgery in many cases, but not 100%. If you feel you cannot communicate well with your doc, consider talking with another one. ...Read more

May not ever return: Ovarian cysts generally develop during each menstrual cycle, in young women. Frequently one cyst per cycle becomes dominant and may enlarge to the point of discomfort prior to ovulation. There are many other causes of pelvic pain (scar tissue, endometriosis, infection). There is a good chance that your cysts may play only a small role in your pain. Cyst removal/ surgery may not always be needed. ...Read more
