Oh---I'm sorry I misread your question! Will your ovary be OK is what you meant.

Having a cyst rupture on your ovary---that sounds extremely painful and I'm happy that you are OK.

It is impossible for us to tell you if your ovary is going to be OK after surgery, as we do not know all of your pertinent personal health information (nor, are we medical doctors), and as you mentioned that you have "not yet had children", I'm assuming you are also asking if you will be able to have children.

Many women are able to become pregnant after having ovarian cysts removed, but infertility is a risk factor. It really depends on the size and location of the cysts, among many other variables that only your doctor and surgeon will be able to discuss with you.

I assume you have been diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), is that correct? Do you have any additional information from your health care providers that you need help answering?

There are some great resources and support groups for PCOS:
Empowher: PCOS

Did you call your doctor's office when the gray/light purple tissue came out 3 months ago? Was this associated with your period?

What kind of ovarian cysts were you diagnosed with?

Ovarian cysts can rupture and bleed, if this is what you think happened (the gray/light purple could have been blood). However, you would most likely have experience sharp or intense pain.

I'm not sure why you are wondering if tissue being shed would mean that your ovary is suddenly "OK"? This concerns me---do you know what your diagnosis means? There are different types of cysts; some go away without treatment, and others require surgery. What information did your doctors tell you?

When is your surgery scheduled? What type of surgery are you having?

I hope to hear back from you, as I think it is crucial for you to be well-educated on your diagnosis and all treatment options, and we can help provide you with some much-needed information.
