3 doctors agree

In brief: Pelvic Pain

If i understand question, small ovarian cysts not found by gyn or ultrasound, seldom are of any consequence.
Ct usually can not differentiate type of ovarian cysts and usually recommend a sono to differentiate. A"ruptured" ovarian cyst can cause transient pelvic pain. Ovulation each month (releasing an egg) is a smaller version of same thing, rupture of a small cyst. This may be normal.

A large cyst can be very painfull for several days or even a week. Multiple cysts, in a patient not trying to get pregnant should be suppressed medically
