PCOS, sharp pain in ovaries when I sneeze. Is this normal ?

I have Pcos , and when I sneeze there is a sharp pain in what i think is my ovaries. It feels like when I sneeze that my ovaries contract and when the sneeze is complete they release and then that causes the sharp pain. Almost as if cysts are popping or exploding. Is that normal? What could be the cause of this? Could it be a tumor or even more cysts that need to be removed and might possibly have turned solid? History if needed: I have had cyst looked at and one has been 5 cm and the other 4cm at one time but they said since the cysts did not need to be removed because they were filled with liquid and they naturally go away since I am on Birth Control and that regulates my hormones. I have been on several different birth controls for the past 8 years take them regulately and timely so i don t get sharp pains what used to be sometimes when i walk around, 3 times daily.

Thanks for the query.

Poly cystic ovary disease is having small cysts of less than 1 cm diameter, which can be up to ten in number.
But if you had only two cysts with 4 and 5 cms diameter, that will not fit into the definition of PCOD.
Usually these type of simple cysts will subside with the usage of contraceptive pills.
But if you are having persistent pain even after using the pill, better to consult gynecologist once and go for ultrasound to rule out pelvic inflammatory disease and any persisting cysts.
Take care.
