Hello Myriam

Thank you for writing!

There are several kinds of reproductive cysts. One of the more painful types of ovarian cysts is the hemorrhagic cyst. They develop when a blood vessel ruptures and drains blood into the fluid already in the cyst. This releases blood back into the ovary which can cause the pain. Surgery is sometimes necessary, but medication and rest are other options. This is not the same as a ruptured cyst and does not mean the cyst is bleeding into the abdomen.
Your symptoms could certainly be connected to a hemorrhagic cyst. I hope you get to see your gynecologist soon, and can get a diagnosis/treatment plan so you feel better.
