Ovarian cysts come in several different forms. All types of cysts on the ovary contain some type of fluid encased in a sac or a pocket.

Hemorrhagic cysts are a specific type of ovarian cyst that contain the presence of blood within the cystic sac. Hemorrhagic cysts are common and usually do not cause any long-lasting problems but can be very painful.

1. What Is an Ovarian Cyst?

A cyst is a sac that develops in the body and fills with fluid or debris. Ovarian cysts form inside or on the surface of an ovary and are very common. During the menstrual cycle, a cyst may form due to hormonal changes.

In many cases, ovarian cysts do not cause any symptoms and are only found during routine screening. These cysts usually go away without any intervention within a few months. However, some ovarian cysts can cause painful symptoms and complications.
