Can I exercise after an ovarian cyst

I had a cyst rupture last night the pain is subsiding but hurts. I'm hoping to be able to suck it up and go wake boarding tomorrow. Would that cause more damage? Also how long should I wait before intercourse?

Hello Anonymous,

When an ovarian cyst ruptures, internal bleeding results. Blood acts as an irritant and causes pain. sometimes severe pain.

I would wait to have sexual intercourse and engage in vigorous exercise, such as wake boarding, until the pain subsides completely.
