Re: Ruptured ovarian cyst, even on Yasmin?!

I was told they were fibrous cysts but when I looked them up it said that I needed to ovulate to have them. I know I do ovulate cause I can feel it and it's usually on the right side. Which is where the majority of my cysts are. A few are on my left but I have more on the right.

There was one that knocked me to the floor in a ball with a heating pad. I tried using a massager cause it felt like I had a Charley horse in my right ovary. That didn't help much. No nausea just pain and cramps with sweats. It lasted for about 12 hours then I felt a large pop and I swore my body just ripped open. I had a large gush of blood with some dark tissue like stuff. Soon as it popped I stopped sweating and the cramps were completely gone.

I had one burst at work. The whole day I had cramps on the right side. I was dizzy and sweating but the pain was not as horrible as the other one. I kept taking BC powder thinking I could thin my blood and make it pop. I know it does not make sense but at the time I thought it did. If nothing else it helped with the pain. My legs were weak this time. They were so weak they hurt. Finally it burst I had a sharp pain that sent me to the floor followed by a feeling of bubbles in my ovaries. About 10 seconds later I had a gush and had to run to the bathroom to find the same tissue and blood. I went to the doctor a week later and during the vaginal ultra sound they saw scar tissue on my ovaries and more cysts.

At my last ultra sound which was in March they found fibroids in my uterus and a handful of cysts. I gotta say I would rather have a cyst burst every month instead of having fibroids. I have 3 and they hurt constantly and make me think I have to urinate all the time.
