It is not uncommon for ovarian cysts to develop and in most cases they shrink and disappear after a few months with little to no obvious symptoms. However, in some cases a cyst does not shrink but becomes larger. This is when symptoms may become apparent and these types of ovarian cysts are most likely to burst. An ovarian cyst burst represents the worst possible outcome for you. This article will detail what happens when this happens and your what you should do about it.
You are likely to feel intense pain around the lower abdomen with an ovarian cyst burst. The extent of the pain will vary based on certain factors, like the type and if there is any bleeding and infection of the surrounding tissue.
Pain is felt around the abdomen because the contents of the cysts come into contact with the peritoneum. The peritoneum is a serous membrane that lines the inner abdominal cavity and secretes the hormone serous that acts as a lubricant. The peritoneum is very sensitive and is easily inflamed and irritated. In the case of an ovarian cyst burst, blood and other matter may irritate the peritoneum causing intense pain. The amount of pain will vary and depends on the size of the cysts and the amount of blood and other matter that is released.
Again, depending on the size there could be a release of a large amount of blood. This will be far more than the amount of blood released during a during a normal menstruation cycle.
