Ovarian Cyst Symptoms

Ovarian Cyst Symptoms

The most common symptoms of ovarian cysts are:

1.  Pain during sexual relations
2.  Pain that extends down to your thighs
3.  Backache in the lower part of your back
4.  Abdominal pain
5.  Increased pain as your cycle draws near

Unfortunately, these symptoms do not necessarily or always indicate that the patient has ovarian cysts.  They could easily be symptoms of some other illness, since these symptoms are general in nature.   That is to say that pain in your lower back area may be equally symptomatic of having lifted something heavy.

But, when you have multiple symptoms together, and all are symptomatic of having an ovarian cyst, then its more likely that you could, indeed, have an ovarian cyst.

It is always important when having any or all of these symptoms, and you suspect you may have an ovarian cyst, that you get a pelvic exam immediately.  The exam will either confirm or deny your suspicions.

If you do, in fact, have an ovarian cyst, then you will need to know several things about it.
Here is what you need to know:

1. What kind of cyst is it?
2. How large is it?
3. Do you have multiple cysts?
4. Is there torsion involved… (is the cyst twisted)
5. Is there a chance of the cyst rupturing?

Once you have the proper medical exams and the physician has answered the above questions, then you are much more capable of making an informed decision as to how to begin treatment to find ovarian cyst relief.
