I am 23 years old and my last period started the August 22nd, though my periods have not been regular in over a year. Two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with a 6 cm cyst on my left ovary. After the ultrasound, I didn't see my primary, because I was told to go straight to a gyn. My gyn performed a pelvic exam and sent me home without much information on what to expect. How common is a rupture, and is that the only way for a cyst to disappear?
I have not been feeling well for the past couple days (malaise, fatigue, on and off pelvic pain that is sometimes sharp). At work this afternoon, I walked to my coworkers desk and back, and felt like my heartbeat was 10 times heavier than normal! I felt very faint, but waited it off. Now I am up at 4:30 am with dull, achy pain in my right flank. Is it possible that my cyst ruptured? I am very concerned about the associated risks with rupture... plus, I hear it is incredibly painful.
Thanks in advance for any help.
