Most ovarian cysts are harmless and benign (non-cancerous) causing little concern to the host in whose ovaries they grow and dissolve on their own. However, their sizes vary from that of a grape to a grapefruit, depending upon the type they belong to. For instance, a follicular cyst may look like a small bubble filled with innocuous fluid while a dermoid cyst may resemble a sack filled with human skin, bone, teeth, hair and what not. Moreover, some ovarian cysts contain traces of blood that has turned stale because of being collected through several monthly periods.
These cysts as well as some others often tend to burst or rupture, creating ripples of complication amidst the otherwise placid sea of abdominal health. Mind you, they can also be life-threatening at times, causing headache to doctors and healthcare providers.
However, the worst thing is that, they are often difficult to identify as their symptoms do not vary much with that of normal ovarian cysts, save and except that the pain and discomfort associated with ruptured cysts are far more frequent and intense in nature.
Nevertheless, here are some of the common ruptured ovarian cyst symptoms that may give them away without any investigative procedure.
· Irregular, heavy or scanty menstruation bleeding frequently ending as abruptly as it begins. Ultrasound may confirm ruptured ovarian cyst.
· Pain in the pelvic area that is far more intense as compared to normal menstrual pain, originating before, during and after the period.
· Bleeding outside of menstruation - can be heavy or light, depending on the contents of the ruptured cyst.
· Nausea, vomiting or other symptoms normally related to pregnancy.
· Painful sex. Discomfort in the pelvic area during intercourse.
These symptoms, when they appear, should also be verified by CT scan or MR imaging to confirm rupturing of ovarian cyst. It would be a mistake to treat the symptoms - something that conventional treatments do. Turn to holistic remedies to treat the root causes instead. Once these causes are eliminated, the symptoms will g away on their own, never to return again.
