I have an ovarian cyst on my left ovary. Sometimes it hurts off and on, but then sometimes it feels like I have a cyst on my right side as well since I get pain over on that side too, but the CT scan only showed a small cyst on my left ovary. Anyway, I am just curious and kind of worried: what would it mean if it ruptured? I read that if large ones rupture that can be dangerous, but if it's a small one? The majority of the time, is it usually okay if they rupture and nothing comes of it?
I ask because earlier today I got up from sitting and stretched my arms over my head and I got a sharp pain on the left side where my ovary is. It hurt for a couple of minutes and then stopped. Now, every once in a while, I've been getting a dull pulsing kind of pain in that area. Not really that painful, but still can feel it and not comfortable. Maybe stretching kind of twisted the cyst and caused the pain. No idea, just guessing.
But I'm just curious what happens if they rupture? Should we be worried? What would it feel like? Is it really painful or not always? And if they don't rupture they are just reabsorbed by the body?
Thanks so much!
