What are symptoms of ovarian cysts?

Usually Nothing. During reproductive age cysts are very common. Most women would have something considered a cyst at least once per year but would never know unless an x-ray test was performed due to pain. Often though the pain is completely separate from the cyst. The follicle (a cyst) that is the growing egg each month grows to 2-3 cm and ruptures each month. Cyst rupture is normal! cysts unusually cause pain.
Usually nothing. As infertility specialists, we often encounter cysts of various descriptions in patients with no pain. The medical system has labelled cysts as a pain causing problem due to the fact that after evaluation with no findings, doctors and patients are uncomfortable with, "i don't know what's causing your pain but it's not serious." patients have a hard time leaving without a dx, hence "cyst.".
