Recurring cysts on the right ovary causing intense pain. Had hysterectomy with right ovary intact. How long will it take to rupture the cyst?

Hi, I keep getting cysts on my right ovary . I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago with the only thing remaining is my right ovary. I am in more pain now than I was when I still had everything. I have never had a problem with my right ovary until a few months ago. April 5th I had to go to the ER for the pain. They did CT and US the cyst is 3.6cm x 3.8cm x 3.2cm. How long does it take to rupture because I am still in pain started April 4th.

The cyst may not rupture as it is small. Usually cysts resolve in one menstrual cycle. Recurrent ovarian cysts can be suppressed with several cycles of birth control pills taken continously. I assume that you are not past menopause. Sometimes after hysterectomy adhesions form and the ovary can become trapped, this is called "ovarian entrapment syndrome" Chronic pain results from cyst and fluid formation. Removal of the ovary cures the problem.
