How are ovarian cysts first found?

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." most cysts are found on testing for other problems or pelvic pain.
