Ovarian Cyst Symptoms You Should Know

Statistics have shown that almost 80% of all women will acquire an ovarian cyst at some point in their life, but not all will show or experience the symptoms of ovarian cysts. Cysts are tumors about the size of a penny that may form inside or outside of a woman’s ovary. These tumors form during the normal menstrual cycle of a woman. Most of them turn out to be benign and may not cause any harm at all. There are, however, a small percentage of tumors that turns out to be malignant and these are the ones that are a cause for concern.

Often, when cysts appear, they do not cause any symptoms and they usually clear out on their own. More than half of the women that get an ovarian cyst will not even realize that they had it. It is possible not to even know that you have a cyst until you visit your gynecologist for a pelvic exam. They only become uncomfortable or extremely painful when they rupture, twist or bleed.

The symptoms of ovarian cysts vary from those that are quite severe to those that are a bit mild. The most common symptom associated with ovarian cysts is an irregular menstrual cycle. This may manifest itself in different ways; you may have your periods earlier or later than you usually do, you may experience extreme pain just before the periods begin and just before they end, you may also notice spotting or abnormal vaginal bleeding. Ovarian cysts may also cause urinary problems; you may experience pain when urinating or frequent urination.

There may be dull or intermittent pain around the pelvis that then stretches to the buttocks and the thighs. Any type of pelvic pain that is accompanied by a fever and vomiting should be checked out by a licensed medical professional. The pain in the pelvis may be as a result of a ruptured cyst. If you experience severe pain during sexual intercourse, then this is a sign that you may have an ovarian cyst. Pain or pressure on the abdomen and during bowel movements is another symptom.

Other symptoms of ovarian cysts may mimic those of pregnancy. These include tenderness of the breasts, nausea and vomiting. Being unable to give birth is thought to sometimes be caused by ovarian cysts. This is because large cysts can block the flow of blood into the ovaries. This may cause a noticeable inflammation in the area.

One or more of these symptoms occurring in isolation should not be a cause for alarm. Experiencing these symptoms is not a clear diagnosis that there are cysts in your ovary. Some of these symptoms may occur as a result of other complications and ailments like ovarian cancer, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease or ectopic pregnancy. Therefore, if you think that you are experiencing any of these symptoms of ovarian cysts, it is best to visit a doctor and s/he will ascertain what is really going on after conducting a few tests.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Can you have ovarian cysts, fibroids and endometriosis all at once?
    I have Pcos (Polycstic Ovarian Syndrome) but I also have symptoms of Endometriosis and fibroids too. Is it possible to have all 3 at one time? If anyone knows please let me know! (I have a dr appointment coming up) but just curious now! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      These conditions are linked to an underlying gluten intolerance. I have just discovered that I am gluten intolerant and suffered from endometriosis all my child bearing years. I also had a large fibroid. Nobody told me that I might be gluten intolerant, but I’ve been doing a lot of research since discovering this and I now know these conditions are linked to gluten intolerance. many people are GI but simply don’t know it as doctors are only familiar with celiac disease which is an allergy to gluten rather than just an intolerance. Gluten is found in wheat, oats, barley and rye. I’ve been gluten free for 4 months now and feeling better than I have done in years. If you go on a gluten free diet, you will probably heal your conditions.

  3. QUESTION:
    What are the symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?
    I feel this certain kind of pain on my left side when i ovulate. I just had a Myomectomy( fibroids) in November and i was feeling such pains b4 then. I thot it would stop after the surgery.My Gynae checked during the surgery and he said my tubes & ovaries are fine.

    • ANSWER:
      Gabbie gave a great list of the symptoms. Most women only experience a few of the symptoms – I’ve never heard of a woman who has all of them. I was diagnosed primarily because of irregular periods and acne – I don’t have the common symptoms (weight gain/inability to lose weight, insulin resistance/diabetes). The only way to be absolutely positive is through an ultrasound looking for the cysts. If your doctor checked during your surgery, you’re fine.

      Pain during ovulation on one side or the other is pretty common. It may indicate which side the egg is being released – you may release predominantly on the left side.

  4. QUESTION:
    Connection between ovarian cyst and fibroid?
    an ultrasound i has found a ovarian cyst and a uterine fibroid. i am having another ultrasound next week to check the cyst again. if it ends up being something serious like cancer is the fibroid a sign that it could have spread to the uterus or are fibroids all together different? i have just been feeling so blah lately and have this bad feeling that something is really wrong, at the same time i think it these feelings might just be nerves and all be put on by anxiety. i initially went to the doctor for back pain and had a ct scan that led to a ultrasound led to this.

      No one can answer your specific question. You will need to go back to your doctor, be honest with him and tell him exactly what you are experiencing and how you feel. Let him examine you and come to his own conclusions.

    • ANSWER:
      An ovarian cyst is a fluid sack attached to your one of your ovaries and a fibroid is a solid. Most fibroids are small growths of knotty connective tissue that develop in different ways and are almost always benign. Fibroids are common with women and in some cases hereditary. They can be extremely painful even though benign and cause many problems. You will get tremendous relief once they are removed. They sometime come back thou
