Ovarian cyst. Hi, most of time the treatment for Ovarian cyst in premenopuasal women is a watchful wait, which means an ultrasound repeated in 6-8 wks to monitor for any changes but your doctor will determine that base on the size, symptoms and shape of the ovarian cyst, in some cases some doctors offer birth control pills during the watchful period. Now ur pain could be 2/2 cyst or not, I believe an evaluation.
Not necessarily. Sometimes the cyst will be painful after it ruptures or just prior to rupturing, so your problem may be solved already! I would recommend you see your GYN to make sure the pain is consistent with the ovarian cyst or ruptured cyst. The good news is that these do not always need to be removed.
