Ruptured Fibroid Tumor

Although difficult to understand in some instances, women with ovarian cysts and signs of rupture may simply neglect to consider them any different than the things that happen normally with ovarian cysts. The complications may increase as the ovarian cysts that ruptured may generate different symptoms from one woman to another and be ignored for that very reason.

An understanding of the symptoms of ovarian cysts that rupture can be very useful in order to choose the correct treatment before complications arise. To staying vigilant, checking a situation and having routine examinations is critical if you have an ovarian cyst condition. It is therefore crucial that you consider these symptoms to be guidelines and not an exact diagnosis of your condition as symptoms will not necessarily follow textbook rules.

Overview of ovarian cysts that rupture

Data shows that 75 percent of women will have ovarian cysts at some point in their life. Most of these instances are not in themselves serious. Many times ovarian cysts do not have any particular external signs and so may go and identified and without management. If there is no malignancy, then ovarian cysts are considered to be normal. Many women only find out when an ultrasound examination is done that ovarian cysts are identified. However serious problems can arise with the rupture of some ovarian cysts.

To avoid the rupture of ovarian cysts you need to understand your own particular situation and to seek consultation with the appropriate medical staff upon diagnosis of this condition. It is also required for you to understand the symptoms of ruptured ovarian cysts if you are to conduct a diagnosis yourself. The first sign of a ruptured cyst is that something is not right with your body. This information should receive immediate attention as in some cases it can be very serious.

Understanding what the symptoms mean

The size of ovarian cysts that have ruptured are almost identical to those of normal ovarian cysts. The differences lie in the intensity and the frequency of these signs between ovarian cysts that are normal or ruptured. Some common signs of ovarian cysts that have ruptured may be:

(1) Irregular menstrual cycle: women beyond the age of teenagers who still have irregular menstrual cycles are a cause of concern and should be examined right away. Piercing pain in the pelvic area at time of menstruation can also be a cause for worry and a possible sign of an ovarian cyst condition. Irregular menstruation can also include light periods, very heavy bleeding or the absence of periods altogether.

(2) Pain: ruptured ovarian cysts commonly cause pain in the pelvic area as well as in the thighs. Women experience pain especially before, after and even during menstruation. Pain is heightened by an ovarian cyst that has ruptured and discomfort and bleeding may also occur. Back pain is sometimes indicated as well. In this case seek treatment of once if there is any sign of heightened or abnormal pain.

(3) Uncomfortable intercourse: sexually active women experience considerable pain during intercourse, particularly around the pelvic area.

(4) Problems concerning the bladder: the rupture of an ovarian cyst will stop many women from being able to empty their bladders correctly. A ruptured ovarian cyst may be the cause here because this puts pressure on the platter. Increased pressure on the bladder is therefore the result meaning that women may want to urinate more often.

(5) Bleeding: bleeding unexpectedly is a major of cause of concern especially outside of menstruation. Any incidence of bleeding that cannot be explained should immediately be checked to see if a more serious problem exists. If a cyst ruptures, bleeding can be either heavy or light.

(6) General lack of comfort: women may also feel nauseous, have attacks of vomiting or other phenomena connected with poor health. For this, general discomfort can be the first sign of a key problem in the gynaecological status of a woman. Insulin-resistance, vomiting, fainting, nausea and signs similar to pregnancy are all connected with the breaking open of ovarian cysts.

Any changes should be recorded and checked medically without waiting. You should also take a close interest in your gynaecological health whether or not you have symptoms concerning ruptured ovarian cysts.

Treatment Alternatives

The treatment of ovarian cyst ruptures should be accomplished in accordance with the intensity of the problem and often needs to be done individually. For the long term, an ovarian cyst that ruptures can be a menace. For this reason, conventional medicine is ineffective because it only tackles symptoms and not causes, whereas the holistic solution gets to the real causes of the condition behind the symptoms of ruptured ovarian cysts in order to prevent it from recurring.

Management should therefore start as quickly as possible to avoid any additional complications. A holistic agenda rather than classical medicine can be the choice that will really remedy ovarian cysts that rupture. The holistic method can be very useful because it deals with the underlying causes of the difficulty.

    My Dr. found 4 large fibroid tumors on my Uterus…Hysterectomy?
    I went in for an ultrasound, because I had severe stomach bloating, pain and cramps, and they found that I had a cyst on my ovary that ruptured. Well during my ultrasound, they found 4 large fibroids on my uterus (an inch or bigger in size each). The biggest one leans right on my bladder, which explains why I urinate so frequently, and also explains why I have such horrible menstrual bleeding with clots etc…..so I guess my question is, should I opt for a partial hysterectomy? I am 33 years old and I have 2 children (and am not wanting any more). Can anyone tell me if they have been in similiar situations, and what they did. If you had a partial hysterectomy, was it vaginally or thru an incision, and how long to recover? I run a daycare out of my home, and do not want to be off work too long! Thank you!

      I had one the approximate size of a cueball, like on a pool table (about 2 1/4 inches), and another smaller one. The large fibroid pressed on my bladder, too, and gave me pretty bad periods. My doctor had a wait-and-see attitude, recommending increased dosage of ibuprofen (3 times the package’s directions) and making sure I wasn’t becoming anemic through blood loss. The option of a hysterectomy was always there, but put off-able month after month. I, too, had my family complete and didn’t want more children.

      In the end, I didn’t get the hysterectomy, largely because the nature of what I do lets me dash to the bathroom often, and endure a couple of bad days every month. When I became perimenopausal, the big fibroid began to shrink. It’s down to about 1 3/4 inches now and still getting smaller.

      Ultimately, the decision for you should be based on how negatively it’s impacting your life.

    Horrible menstrual pain…..help!!!?
    I am having horrible menstrual cramps that started this morning. I was diagnosed 4 months ago with ovarian cysts and 2 fibroid tumors. I am taking Lortab for the pain but it isn’t helping. Anyone got any idea what could be wrong? Maybe one of the cysts ruptured..?? Hopefully someone that has had this experience can help. The pain is so bad I am considering going to the ER but not sure if I should or not. Thanks…
    I already tried a hot bath this morning and it didn’t help. Also using the heating pad which isn’t helping much either.

    • <3  says:

      I have excruciating menstrual cramps too, however I’ve never been check for anything.

      -Eat a banana or two
      -Put a heating pad over your stomach, or a tubesock filled with rice and heat it up in the microwave.
      -Take some aleve along with your Lortabs. I would try one first because of the APAP in your lortabs.
      -Take a hot bath
      -Wear loose clothing
      -Avoid tampons.
      -Drink water. Caffiene makes it worse IMO.

      If none of these help the least bit, then go to the ER.

      Hope this helps.
      Feel better!! <3

    Could it be ovarian cancer?
    I had a baby when I was 26 years old, it was an emergency c-section for fetal distress. After the c-section I couldn’t stop bleeding and after 5 months my doctor did a d&c to clean out my uterus. After that I had a bad pap smear and had to have bad cells removed for mild displaysia. After that my pap came back normal. I then had a iud put in and it fell out. So I got off birth control and became pregnant again. I began bleeding 4 weeks into the pregnancy and at 13 weeks I miscarried, my placenta had a tear in it and it did not form completely. A d&c was perfomed. 7 months later I became pregnant again and gave birth at the end of Jan. this year. I bled a little after a repeat c-section, but 4 weeks after giving birth I started hurting on my right side. My doctor said I had over done it and it would go away. So I had the essure procedure done. It has been almost 6 weeks since I had essure done and I have not stopped bleeding since. I went to the doctor last Friday because this right side is still bothering me and they did an ultrasound and said I had a cyst on my right ovary that measured 4.3 cm. I got up Monday morning and was gushing blood and hurting so bad I couldn’t walk. I called the doctor and they admitted me into the hospital. They did another ultrasound and he said it appeared the cyst had ruptured, because it was now at 1.7 cm and there was fluid behind my uterus. He said that I had a fibroid tumor in my uterus also. He said the bleeding should stop. Well it hasn’t and I am still hurting on this right side. It is bright red blood. I am having hot flashes at night, and I am only 29 years old and not going through menopause. I hate to call the doctor again, because I feel like they are just blowing me off, but the pain is almost unbearable and I have had diarrhea for 3 days now. Should I have him biopsy this cyst to see if it is cancer? Should I just go to the er? I honestly don’t trust this doctor’s judgement. I know my body and something is not right!!!!
    I also have had trouble with endometrosis before and I explained this to the doctor, but he did not seemed concerned about it. Today I am very light headed and just don’t feel right. I have had cyst rupture before but it is nothing like this. I can not pick my 3 year old son up without buckling at the knees. Last night I was helping him to the bathroom and we were in a hurry and I ran him down the hall and I could not get out of the floor for ten minutes I hurt so bad on my side. I started working out about 3 weeks ago and about 10 minutes after each session I would get diarrhea and start bleeding. The doctor just told me to quit working out.

    Pregnancy/C-Section after myometcomy?
    I had an 11 cm fibroid tumor removed through an abdominal myomectomy on 4/22/08. It has been now almost a yr and a half. I knew going into a pregnancy that because the uterine wall had surgery (and possibly pieces removed with the fibroid) that I could never going into labor and would require a c-sec. I knew this would be done to prevent a uterine rupture. Now as I’m getting closer to my actual due date of 8/22 to prevent a possible rupture they have moved the c-sec date from 8/16 to 8/5 with an amnio on 8/4 to check for fetal lung development.
    Honestly I knew all this going in so I shouldn’t be so shocked. But I feel so worried about everything like I’m going to just die on the table! Or that my uterus is going to rupture before I can get to the hospital and I’ll die! I don’t know any other women that have been through this. I guess more than advice I’m just trying to see that there are other women like me who have gone thru this. BTW my abdominal scar is a vertical one (up and down) not the pretty tiny low c-sec cuts everyone gets. I’m afraid of the dr going over it!

    FYI- There’s one thing about giving advice out of concern and another for providing information thats completely untrue as well as inaccurate. The miscarriage rate for an amnio is NOT 40%. Women have it all the time. Fetal death is very infrequent. Of course I don’t want to have it done. But thats just not true.

    • daa  says:

      I had an abdominal myomectomy with a large uterine incision. 10 years later, I had a successful pregnancy and scheduled c-section. There’s always a chance of something going wrong with any pregnancy, but try not to worry too much. (Easier said than done, I know!)

      You will be fine trust me, try not to worry so much, I know thats hard when your talking about your baby and yourself but your only going to stress your body out more which causes your immune system to be weaker. my aunt had stomach surgery once when she was in her teens which left a huge scar, they had to cut through part of that scar for all three of her children which were delivered through c section. Ive had a son through c section. everything will be fine. just focus on enjoying the last bit of your pregnancy.

    Wife had hysterecomy and is now suffering worse than before-help!!?
    During our second child my wife was discovered that she had fibroid tumors and emdomytriosis, this caused a lot of pain but she wanted another child.
    With the third pregnancy everything went downhill, she was bed ridden for 8 weeks.
    After surgery she had so many complications, ruptured once and has since(5months) shown zero improvment.
    In fact it is getting worse.

    Her stomach pain is so bad that she can rarely get out of bed, she now is a full 15 inches larger around her mid section than when she was pregnant.
    She will get bigger in a matter of days if she is in pain.
    We have had every test known done and I feel we should switch Doctors.

    But she feels a connection with the one she has.
    MY question is has anyone out there had similar experiences?
    And what did you do to get better, life is pretty bad as she is unable to care for the three children and in now suffering from depression.
    Current medical concoction methadone, oxycodone, many others.

    Someone please help!!

  • Jack L. W.  says:

    Wife is sick, very bad shape can anyone help, been going on for 4 years+?
    She was originally diagnosed with fibroid tumors and endo metriosis, then she gave birth to our fisrt child, she had many problems but seemed to get a little better but not back to full strength.

    Then 2nd child comes now tumors have grown and afterwards they try to inject small plastic beads into her uterus hoping this will cut off the blood supply to her tumors,no luck.

    After being told it is best we dont have anymore children she talks me into tyring for a daughter, but with this pregnacy everything goes wrong, in intesive care for 2 months, 6 weeks after hysterectomy she ruptures and comes very close to dying, but we notice a change in her after the last round, she is extremly weak, lacks drive cannot stay awake, constant pain( scale7-8) of 10 most of the days.

    everu test known has been run and still nothing all the while the pain is increasing to where she cannot function even while taking handfuls of pain meds, sh says the pain is centered under her belly button. HELP US
    Thank for all the input, we have had 50 plus tests run on her.
    Will try someother route for treatment as what they are doing or not doing is making thngs worse.

    • peterbilt197  says:

      I’m sure that her being in so much pain all the time is part of the reason why she has little to no energy. That and the worries that come with everyday life is probably wiping her out. I would definitely go to a different doctor and get a second opinion. If you’re still not satisfied, keep doctor hopping until you get some results! There is definitely something wrong with your wife. I think she needs to have something like an MRI, or a CT scan. If everything has been done that they can do for her, tell the doctor you want them to do an exploratory surgery. One way or another you’ll find out whats wrong. Don’t give up. Just try to be as supportive and patient as you can. Good luck

    “PCOS” diagnosis and the realities have having children.?
    I am 28 years old and I dream of having children. I was diagnosed with PCOS or PCO, PSOD or Poly Cystic Ovaries or Cystic Ovaries (depending on whatever the current lingo is… LOL) I was diagnosed at 14 and was told then that my chances of having a child when I was older were about 15-25%. I have since had 11 major cysts either rupture or require surgery. I have had surgery to remove fibroid tumors and have been on a variety of diffrent medicines to ‘treat’ this condition. No one has been able to offer me any REAL answers to is it possible for people with PCOS to have kids. I know some people manage to… but I want answers from *REAL* people. Not just what my doctor says which is that he wants me to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on risky fertility treatments with no assurances that it will even work. Do you have PCOS and did you have kids? Any complications?
    I tried Metformin and had an allergic reaction to it. Even at a very low doses.

    • Dragonfly  says:

      I have PCOS, after finding out my husband and I tried for 6 more months to get pregnant before we finally did. (in addition to the year before we found out) he also has low sperm mobility the only thing I was taking at the time was metformin and had just had a test done to see if my tubes were blocked (they inject dye into the uterus and watch through an x-ray to see if it moves through) according to my Dr. a lot of women get pregnant after the test and well I did. So yes it is possible to get pregnant with PCOS. I did also loose about 10 lbs before getting pregnant which is suppose to help. If your not already go see a reproductive endocrinologist, especially if the Dr. you are seeing now hasn’t tried putting you on metformin. Part of the problem is that insulin resistance goes along with PCOS, the metformin helps this problem, you should also try loosing weight, from what I’ve read about 90% of women who have PCOS are overweight and loosing weight can help to get pregnant, though it can be a hard thing to do sometimes.

    • pattypuff76  says:

      I’ve never had a myomectomy, but I’ve had more than one c-section. My second child was born 2 years and 7 months after my first. My doctor let me try a VBAC since my uterus had healed enough and I wasn’t facing the same complications as the first time around.

      I was EXTREMELY panicked toward the end of the pregnancy. There was one particular Ob/Gyn in the same office who actually tried to convice me that I was going to die if I went into labor. (I will never seek services from that one again.)

      I had contractions 15 minutes apart for a week before my second c-section. My labor never progressed, really, and my son was born 3 days late. I survived the surgery and so did my uterus.

      As of now, I am planning on having another baby someday. I know that I’ll have to have a c-section the next time around, but my doctor is completely supportive.

      Just try to stay calm…There are many women out there who have had uterine surgeries and excellent outcomes with c-section deliveries afterward.

      Congratulations. Enjoy your little one when he/she arrives.
