The ovaries in women are responsible for producing eggs, and these eggs are then fertilized by sperm after intercourse. During ovulation, which is the period when eggs are released, there is an increased chance that cysts can form on the ovaries. These are small, fluid-filled sacks.
These cysts are usually quite harmless and many women will experience no symptoms whatsoever. These cysts can rupture sometimes, however, and this can lead to unwelcome symptoms.
Treatment often means painkillers and monitoring the symptoms. In more severe cases, however, it may be necessary to perform surgery. Here’s a look at some of the symptoms that a ruptured ovarian cyst can cause.
Symptom #1: Urinating Frequently
Bladders are like a type of bag. This bag steadily collects urine as it is made by the kidneys, with the bag gradually becoming fuller as time goes by. Eventually, the bag needs to be emptied to make room for more urine, and passing the urine from the body is known as urination.
Most healthy people will usually urinate only a few times a day, although this will vary according to factors such as how many fluids we take on. If you do find that you are urinating more often than usual then it can be a sign that you are not well. It could be that you have a ruptured ovarian cyst.
