Here are 5 ways to deal with a burst ovarian cyst (rupture):
1. Learn the Nature of Ovarian Cysts
Some women who experience ovarian cysts experience pain in the lower abdomen. Basically, a cyst is a disorder found in the ovary which contains fluid in the sac sac. When these cysts burst, they can be life threatening. Although in some cases, the cyst will go away on its own without treatment. So it is very important for you to study the nature of ovarian cysts by consulting a doctor.
2. Be Aware of Symptoms
To reduce the risk of ovarian cyst rupture, it’s best to know the symptoms that may indicate a ruptured ovarian cyst including pain or pain in the pelvic area, pain during sexual intercourse, nausea and vomiting, pain in the breast, feeling fullness in the abdomen and anal pressure. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor to immediately get the results of the examination and the right treatment.
3. Acting Fast
When an ovarian cyst ruptures (ruptures), it is very important to have a medical assessment as soon as possible to assess any damage and other complications that may occur in the body. There is an urgent need to find a stable situation so that proper medical care can minimize injuries. If symptoms are not severe, go to your gynecologist for proper testing and intervention.
4. Testing to Assess Damage
Testing for a possible rupture of an ovarian cyst may include ultrasound or laparoscopic examination to assess the patient’s ovaries and fallopian tubes. Ultrasound is a procedure that uses sound waves to assess tissues and structures. During a laparoscopy, the surgeon makes a small incision in the abdomen to examine the patient’s cyst so that it can help determine the results of the examination.
5. Thinking about surgery
The treatment you may need depends on the size and type of cyst, your age and symptoms. If you have no symptoms but an ultrasound shows that you have a fluid-filled cyst, your doctor may choose to have you follow up with sonograms regularly to assess changes in the size of the cyst. To prevent future cysts, your doctor may prescribe birth control pills, which also lower your risk of developing ovarian cancer. If the cyst is large enough to cause pain and other symptoms, you may need to have it surgically removed. Remember that quick diagnosis and measurable treatment increase your chances of a successful outcome.
