Recognize ruptured ovarian cyst symptoms

Women suffering from ovarian cysts should be aware that the cyst may rupture. It happens mainly at those cases that the cyst was not found earlier. We name it a ruptured ovarian cyst.

It is known that most of the ovarian cysts are not malignant - meaning they are not cancerous. Many of the cysts even disappear within several weeks without treatment. When it happens and you have ruptured ovarian cyst, it causes severe pain, but very often also serious medical difficulties. Consequences are often resulting in different kinds of disorders requiring close attention of medical doctors.

Rupture of an ovarian cyst can happen without symptoms, or the symptom can be sudden abdominal pain on one side of the abdomen. The pain is offten triggered by hard physical activity, it could be exercise, sexual intercourse etc. It could also be followed by vaginal bleeding, as the ovarian hormones excrete and the endometrium sloughs.

Following the rupture of an ovarian cyst, it is common for the abdomen to be distended and for it to be particularly tender. A ruptured ovarian cyst is often also linked to haemorrhage (heavy bleeding), it is often coming with feeling of bloating and abdominal pain. That happens more when the woman is taking anticoagulant medications (e.g. Warfarin). The loss of blood can cause temporary pale skin look or anaemia.

Generally, the main ruptured ovarian cyst symptom is pain. Often, the ruptured ovarian cyst occurs around the menstrual period, primarily just after the period, or just before. If the patient did not experience any pain prior to the rupture, the sudden pain increase will be very significant.

Other general ovarian cyst rupture symptoms include fever, nausea, and maybe vomiting. Also dizziness, weakness or fainting could appear. These are very important symptoms to signal internal bleeding. On top of that, it is also important to mention your current conditions you have been treaded for - they can help to identify your condition too. It could be extremely high or low blood pressure that you normally do not suffer for, that can be additional indicator of a diagnoses.

Once stabilized and treated, you may need to undergo more tests so your doctor can see your condition fully. These could be ultrasound and manual abdominal examinations. You may even need to undergo a laparoscopy or a surgery in order to treat your ruptured ovarian cyst or to complete the diagnosis. Surgical management of a hemorrhagic cyst will probably be necessary.
