When Cysts Rupture
I have a 4cm chocolate cyst on my left ovary. I'm really afraid of it rupturing from what I have read, they cause excruciating pain and you have to go to the ER.

I'm afraid of mine rupturing. I also had a pelvic ultrasound at one point and they said it was leaking fluid into my abdomen (it was not ruptured). I also have really heavy and painful periods. Is it likely to rupture at 4cm? Is there anything that causes them to rupture? Is there anything I can do to stop it? Is there anything you can do to know if it's about to rupture? Thanks for reading and I appreciate any responses or help.
