Updated on December 25, 2015

A sac that is located inside the ovary and is filled with fluid is termed as an Ovarian cyst. Most of the times the sac and the condition have no symptoms. There may be bloating in some cases along with pain in the lower back or abdominal region. Severe pain occurs when the cyst breaks itself open or the ovary gets twisted. When this happens a feeling of faintness and /or vomiting engulfs the affected women. In most cases the cyst does not causes any harm.

In other cases there may be pain during bowel-movements, abdominal bloating, pelvic pain that may occur during or even before the menstrual cycle, menstrual irregularities and pain during conduction of sexual activities.
