I had a large one but I had no symptoms, they only found it when I had a scan. It was harmless and went away after I gave birth.

i have spoken to my midwife who has managed to get me into the early pregnancy unit tomorrow (i'm 9 weeks 3 days) as i have a history of ectopic and cysts. I go on holiday on saturday so hope everything is sorted by then.

I have had ovarian cysts all of my life and had a large one that showed up on my first scan when I was pregnant with my oldest girl. I didn't have any symptoms with that one but usually I'll have heavier cramping around the time of my period or some pain up in the area of the ovaries when I get one now.

If the cyst bursts it can hurt like the devil but in general they are pretty harmless and often go away on their own.
