For anyone who has had this. Is this something that you get alot or was it a one time thing? And if it happened more than once do you keep going to the dr. for it?

  • Yes. I have had those 3-4 times before but I have polycystic ovarian syndrome. They can be painful sometimes. I know they only go away during pregnancy, but if you can sometimes only get them once and a while. I always went to the doctor when one ruptured, just to be safe. And to get pain medication. =)

  • I've had it maybe twice since I was 14 (I'm 30 now). I suggest going to the doctor for it. There is an illness called PID that can feel like an ovarian cyst rupturing but a little more painful. If not treated PID can be fatal. I have had it (though they're not sure how I got it). Always best to be safe.
