    Ovarian Cyst - ruptured

    Ultrasound showed fluid in abdomen which they are assuming was from a cyst rupturing. also have a small cyst. I had hysterectomy 2 years ago but left ovaries... How do I know the ruptured one, fluid is ok and will simply reabsorb?
    Anon_6061 responded:
    I think it's normal for your body to absorb the fluid. Were you prescribed antibiotics? I'm not sure they always prescribe them but it seems they typically do.

    It's typical for the fluid to reabsorb. I think they usually prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection.
