Patient : I am female, 25yrs old, and have a history of ovarian cyst. I had surgery about 7 years ago to remove several cysts from one of my ovaries. Everything was going well and I really did not have any symptoms of the cysts coming back until about a year ago when I went in because of lower pelvic pain. They found out that I had a cyst that had ruptured. Now whenever I have the lower pelvic pain and pressure that is different from my normal monthly pain and cramping I worry that my cysts are coming back. I do not really know how long I should let it go to see if it resolves itself, or if I should go get checked out by my primary doctor. I do not want to go to the doctor if it is just something normal, do not want to seem over dramatic about it. So I am just looking for advice on what to do, and when I have to worry that it may be something more serious.
