Well, they don't really have the same symptoms. An ovarian cyst will cause pain in the lower abdomen, usually more on one side than the other. You would have to go see your doctor to be certain and s/he would either palpate (feel) your pelvis or use ultra-sound to see if there is a cyst there. If you get frequent cysts you may require treatment to prevent them. Most cysts will take care of themselves. If they get too large your doctor may recommend that you have it burst with sound waves or surgically removed. Pregnancy comes with a lot of symptoms but lower abdominal pain should not be one of them. This could be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy (where the fertilized egg has implanted in the fallopian tube rather than the uterus.) These pregnancies have a 0% survival rate for the zygote and can be dangerous for the mother if not removed. But, your average pregnancy (if there is such a thing) mostly involves your period ending but other than that no real extreme changes for the first few months (that are visible on the outside.) It may also include some or all of the following: tiredness, nausea, hunger (more than usual), swollen or tender breasts, mood swings, digestive troubles (constipation, heartburn, etc...) and/or headaches. Your doctor will be the best authority on if a pregnancy test is positive but it is well worth getting one at the pharmacy (get the kind with two test strips you might need the second one) and testing yourself. If it is positive schedule an appointment with your OB soon. If it is negative wait 2 weeks and try again. If it is still negative you are most likely not pregnant but if the second one comes out positive then make that appointment. Hope this helps!

Answer My cousin had these recently. Her symptoms were: heavy bleeding when she had her period and very sore period pains where she was unable to stand an…d kneeling was all she could handle. With these symptoms she was taken straight to the doctors and in turn the doctor sent her to the hospital. After various tests she was told she had ovarian cysts, she was put on medication and eventually had them removed. It's been two years since she first found out, and the cysts still come and go. Her symptoms aren't as bad as when she first found out, but one noticable symptom for her to know when she may getting more cysts is: it hurts when she has sex. Obviously everyone is different you may or may not experience what she had, therefore go to the doctors, they will have better knowledge and can help you. Answer Cramps or "stabbing' sensation on one side of pelvis.Swelling. And brown or discoloured discharge.Possible irregular odour.
An ovarian cyst can rupture during anytime of your menstrual cycle. When I have a cyst rupture I start feeling extreme discomfort in my pelvic region and almost a bloated fee…ling in my lower abdomen for a couple of days. The most common symptom is extreme pain on one side in your pelvic region. If you're worried that you have had a cyst rupture the best thing is to make an appointment to see your gyno and have an ultrasound done. Not only will they be able to see if a cyst did rupture but they will also be able to tell you if there are more cysts that need monitoring. When I had my first ultrasound done in the hospital (I had a cyst rupture and bleed into my abdominal cavity-the pain was so bad I thought I was dying) the doctors found 7 more cysts in addition to the one that had already ruptured. Good luck *** This has happened to me as well. I had a 3x5 cyst burst and bleed into my abdominal cavity and literally I wanted to die. Come to find out it didn't totally burst because now it is 3x3. Great so it shrunk! It took me an hour to realize after it burst that I needed to seek immediate attention. I was doubled over in pain and this was the worst feeling I have ever had! Granted I have never had children or been pregnant. I hurt right behind my belly button like someone had stuck a poker through my belly button and started digging around in my stomach. They ran blood work, an ultra sound and after 8 hours in the ER they decided to admit me. The pain was so bad they hooked me up to an iv drip with narcotics. Today is 2 days later and I feel like I did some major workout time with my abs and I haven't done a thing. Having a cyst burst is very serious if you are feeling the things I described - with the bleeding in the abdominal wall - the blood needs to be reabsorbed into the body but it takes a while and you will definitely need some time off to rest and recoop.
There are several symptoms of an ovarian cyst. A few of the symptoms are dull ache in lower back, bloating, and weight gain.
Yes, you can. It is harder to get pregant if your ovaries have a lot of cysts, but many women have done it!
Both conditions can be asymptomatic (without symptoms) except for the obvious enalargement of the abdomen in pregnancy. Pregnancy can also present with a missed period, …nausea, vomitting, abdominal cramps, headaches, weight gain...etc. The main feature of ovarian cyst is that the onset of pain is sudden and that the pain is very sharp in nature especially when it ruptures. Sometimes it is hard to differentiate it from the pain of appendicitis (inflamed appendix).
No they are different ovarian cysts ONLY occur on the ovaries, and only in women. (i would know i have 4) Pelvic cysts can occur in men and women, and are present in the pelv…ic cavity.
YOU WILL NEED TO GO TO A DOCTOR. DURNING THE EXAMINATION YOU WILL BE ASKED QUESTIONS. AT THE END YOU WILL RECEIVE THE NEWS, GOOD OR BAD.
The most common symptoms of ovarian cyst include: 1. Intense abdominal pain during ovulation. 2. Pain in the pelvic cavity during intercourse. 3. Pain during bowl moveme…nt and ovulation. 4. Pain in the lower back and thighs. 5. Spotting during ovulation. 6. Irregular menses. 7. Failure to ovulate. 8. Nausea and vomiting. 8. Weakness and fatigue. 9. Abnormal periods. 10. Faintness and dizziness. Some women do not have any symptoms while others experience very intense symptoms associated with ovarian cyst formation. Make sure to talk to a qualified health care practitioner to obtain accurate diagnosis.
Yes, you can. I doubt if this happens often, since the two problems are completely unrelated - but they can cause similar pain - ruling out one, should always include checking… the other. Often times a doctor doing abdominal surgery unrelated to the appendix, will remove the appendix too. This way the patient doesn't end up in the ER with belly pain and a scar in the general area of an appendectomy, causing confusion over whether the appendix is the problem. The pain can be excruciating. A sharp pain or dull throbbing sensation continuously occurring throughout the lower abdomen. In general, the following are common symptoms associated with the presence of ovarian cysts: an ache in the in the back (especially the lower back)pressure and/or pain in the abdomennausea and/or vomitingproblems passing urinepressure and/or pain on the bladder and/or rectum The following symptoms may not be present at the initial exam or be a contributing factor when the patient first complains of abdominal pain caused by ovarian cysts: painful sexbreast tendernessirregular menstrual cyclesweight gain The pain associated with appendicitis can be an ache that continues to get worse no matter what you do or take for the pain. It can develop over several days or can present with a sudden severe pain. Usually appendicitis pain is first felt towards the belly button and either spreads as the inflamed appendix gets worse, or gradually becomes a constant burning, stabbing pain felt towards the right side of the abdomen. The symptoms of appendicitis can include: Dull or sharp pain anywhere in the upper or lower abdomen, back, or rectumNausea and/or vomiting soon after abdominal pain beginsSevere crampsPainful urination or trouble urinatingConstipation or diarrhea with gas Abdominal swellingLoss of appetiteFever of 99° F to 102° F
Yes, if you still have the other ovary. Girls are born with two ovaries, both of which produce eggs. So if you still have the other ovary, you can definitely become pregnant.
One symptom is major pain in your lower abdomen. It will be very painful. Could also be an ovarian torsion. either way it will be very painful. Also nausea and vomiting.
I can use a pregnancy test to find out if you're pregnant, and a phsyical exam and possibly ulstasound to see if you have a cyst.

Yes. Torsion of the ovarian cyst on right side and acute appendicitis may give you lot of confusion in diagnosis. Both needs surgical correction. Ultrasound examination will h…elp you lot is such situation.
The most common symptoms of ovarian cysts are pain or bloating in the abdomen, dull ache in the lower back, general pain and bleeding, weight gain, nausea, vomiting, and loss …of appetite. It's important to have any of these symptoms checked out by your family doctor because they can also be symptoms of ovarian tumors.
Many ovarian cysts do not cause any symptoms. Symptoms often indicate a large or ruptured cyst, or one that is blocking blood supply. Pain in the pelvic area, either a dull co…ntinuous ache or sudden sharp pain is a common symptom. Other symptoms include dizziness, bloating or the need to urinate frequently.
