How does a Ovarian cyst feel when it bursts?

I have tried to have sex 3 times in the last 3 days and had to stop twice because of the pain, the 3rd time I just delt with the pain. After that time I had severe pain on my left side, where I usually get my cysts. I took 1000mg of Tylenol and still had a hard time even walking without pain. Today I still have some dull pain on my left side. What does anyone think?

  • exactly like you are dying!!!! take ibprofen insted and I would go to the dr just to make sure you don't have an ovarian torsion. thats not good at all.

  • Yep, the first two say it like it is - when I read this question, my automatic response was "Like you're dying." I'm not going to tell you it's not a ruptured cyst (that would be foolish of me, I'm no doc) but that you CAN walk is a lot more than I could do. My fiance and I were in bed when mine ruptured and I was doubled over in tears because even breathing hurt. He had to half-carry me to the car for an ER ride where they did painkillers via IV. Whatever it is, you should get yourself to the hospital. You're not doing yourself any favors keeping yourself in the dark - the problem could just get worse.

  • Mine ruptured once after sex, when I got up to go to the bathroom, I almost fainted, and was in severe pain.
