Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that are in or on the surface of the ovaries, most ovarian cysts are harmless and will disappear on their own. Ovarian cysts often cause symptoms of hip pain, swelling of the stomach, a feeling of fullness in the stomach, pain every period, pain after sexual intercourse. The causes of ovarian cysts are hormonal disorders, endometriosis, pregnancy, pelvic infection.
