I had a pelvic ultrasound which showed a blood filled ovarian cyst. How serious is this?

In brief: Not very serious.

Hey blood-filled for hemorrhagic cyst is not uncommon.
If it is not painful then it can be observed to see if it will resolve without treatment. If a hemorrhagic cyst causes pain or does not resolve and it may need to be removed surgically. Hope this helps.
