  • I would strongly recomend that you go back to the Dr - pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong. Although cysts can clear up by themselves the pain you are experiencing suggests that this is not the case. Ovarian cysts can twist (torsion) which can harm the blood supply to your ovary and fallopian tube, which in turn will cause tissue damage. Please go back to your Dr ASAP! I had an ovarian cyst that was misdiagnosed, by the time it was spotted there was so much damage to my ovary and fallopian tube that it they had to be removed. I'm not trying to scare you, mine was an extream case, but i wish that i had not put up with the pain for so long.

Fluid filled cysts it is common for them to say wait to see if they go away. Always let your doctor know if the pain has increase tell them you need for them to check further if this is causing this much pain to you. Hugs hope it resolves soon for you.
