ovarian cyst symptomsOvarian cysts are small sacs which are filled with fluid, that develop in a woman’s ovaries. In most cases these cysts are benign and harmless, but certain ovarian cyst symptoms, which tend to be similar in many women, must be treated in order to ensure the problem does not become anything more serious. So, depending on the size of the cysts, and which of the following ovarian cyst symptoms you experience, some women may require further treatment in order to ensure that the problem does not persist, and does not worsen. Some of the ovarian cyst symptoms you may experience are similar to menstrual cramps, and even exercise cramps, but if they persist, it is advisable to make an appointment to see your doctor.

There are certain symptoms which women should be aware of, particularly if those symptoms persist for more than a few days. Ovarian cyst symptoms can and will vary among women and may also vary according to the size and type of cyst. These symptoms may not always manifest during a physical exam or be seen on an ultrasound therefore any presentation of these symptoms should be taken seriously and watched closely for progression.

The ovarian cyst symptoms which are generally most common in women are:

  • Lower abdominal or pelvic pain (these pains can start and stop suddenly, and can vary in length and severity from mild to sharp and from progressive to sudden).
  • Irregular menstrual periods on a consistent basis may also be a common symptom.
  • Feelings of lower abdominal or pelvic pressure or fullness on a constant basis.
  • Long-term pelvic pain during menstrual periods (which are generally felt in the lower back area).
  • Pelvic pain after strenuous exercise.
  • Pain with bowel movements or urination
  • Vaginal pain
  • Spotty bleeding
  • Nausea
  • Infertility is also a symptom which may occur in some women as a result of ovarian cysts.

If you experience any of the ovarian cyst symptoms listed above or anything else that is unusual for your body, you would be wise to make an appointment with your gynecologist or primary care physician for further evaluation. Generally speaking, women know their own bodies and can sense when things are not right. Listen to what your body tells you and take steps to address any problem that may arise.
