Patient :I've had an ovarian cyst since last month. it ruptured causing agonizing pain, and I have pain this month as well, with excruciating pain. Also my stomach is really big for some reason. is that normal? I wanted to know am I gaining fat, or it's liquid retention? also do these cysts ever disappear without birth control pills and does it affect fertility?
Thank you for writing to us.
The answer to all your questions is yes or maybe. It is possible that a person with ovarian cyst has fluid in the stomach and also the changes in the hormones will cause obesity. These cysts can disappear without using birth control pills.
But, I really recommend that you take the Birth control pills as they will help you recover quickly. I believe that what you are talking about is Polycystic ovarian syndrome.
Here are a few more symptoms in this:
Cysts in the ovaries
