Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs on the ovary or its surface. When internal bleeding occurs in functional cysts of the ovary it is called a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst.

There are two types of cysts, a) Follicular cyst and b) Corpus luteum cyst. A hemorrhagic ovarian cyst occurs most commonly into a corpus luteal cyst, and less often in a follicular cyst.

Hormonal problems, ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis, a severe pelvic infection, and previous ovarian cysts are likely to risk factors for such cysts. This leads to several complications such as Ovarian torsion and rupture of the cysts.
