Female reproductive system is very complex, and due to its numerous pecularities can often fall victim to health issues. One of such problems are ovarian cysts. According to doctors, every woman develops at least one such cyst during their lifetime.

Ovarian cysts aren't necessarily life-threatening, but they can cause many unpleasant, and at times painful, symptoms. Some of them include abdominal pain, fever, weight gain, messed up menstrual cycle, and more.

A cyst can often be undetected for long periods of time or be mistaken for a different condition. One such existing case is almost impossible to believe.
