  • I use to get them alot. Typically its a sharp pain either on the right or left side in the ovary area. If it ruptures then it hurts very bad and often if its the right ovary feels similiar to the appendix rupturing.

  • Most women get them after ovulation. comes with the territory. most cases go away on their own and you never even know that you had one. other times, they stick around for awhile and feel like a sharp pain on your ovary. Depending on how large it is and the pain factor, the doctor may remove it but most times they will try to let it heal on its own.
