Complex cysts have debris in them. Functional cysts "should" resolve each cycle, however many of us now know that they do not. Please try to remember that 99% of ovarian cysts are benign. Godspeed
im not sure about the functional thing...but i have had 2 "complex cysts both resolved on there own within 6 weeks....i believe mine were hemmoraghic cysts. the kind that bleed into themselves and makes them look "complex"....it all depends on the cyst i guess. some kinds of complex cysts like dermoids and things of those nature i believe no not resolve on their own/
After my first u/s in Jan., I was told that it is probably a hemorrhagic cyst and can resolve on it's own. The report said it was a complex cyst with debris and a septation with vascular mural thickening (blood supply)....However, it did not resolve...it got slightly bigger and now they think it's an endometrioma or teratoma or something else, that's why I'm having a "diagnostic laparascopy" with "poss. exploratory laparotomy"....they just don't know for sure with me...I will know on Friday though.'
