Two nights ago I was woken up by a loud 'pop' and as I turned over to reach for a glass of water felt a pain in my right side by my ovary. Could this have been a cyst popping? I am 52 and have had cysts before (big ones). Post menopausal by several years. Is there any need for me to get this checked out? I didn't bleed at all and no other symptons ie nausea. Thank you for the advice.
Just read your comments. Are you aware that you have identified yourself as a male, alital. If this is a mistake and you're a female, you know you can press EDIT and fix it. Personally, I've never heard of a cyst on ones ovary popping so loud that you would hear it. Evewisewoman
