What are ovarian cyst symptoms? If you have an ovarian cyst, it is likely that you will experience some of the same symptoms that women experience if they have an ovarian cyst. The main difference is that in case of an ovarian cyst, these symptoms will be very severe and obvious, while in case of normal cyst, these symptoms will often be subtle and will go unnoticed.
What are the symptoms of an ovarian cyst? The most common symptoms of ovarian cyst include painful pelvic and abdominal area, irregular menstrual cycles, nausea and vomiting, bloating, pain during sexual intercourse and in general a feeling of being full. These symptoms are commonly misinterpreted as the start of the period itself, as the changes in your body are very much noticeable and do not usually cause pain, except in case of extreme weight loss. However, when you have a cancerous ovarian cyst, these symptoms can also mean that there is a lot of pressure on the blood vessels leading to the ovaries and they can get twisted, leading to bleeding and sometimes cancerous growths in those blood vessels.
Other symptoms of ovarian cyst include sharp pain in the lower back and pelvic area, lower back pain and lower abdominal pain. When the symptoms start to worsen, it is recommended that you see a doctor immediately because these symptoms may indicate that there is something wrong with your reproductive system. You should also see a doctor if you experience sudden and unexpected weight gain of more than 10lbs for no logical reason. Sometimes this happens when you have a menstrual period and your body stores fat during this period, leading to weight gain.
