This altertion can be due to hormonal imbalance that leads to irregular menstrual cycle, painful menstural flow or dysmenorrhea. The functional ovarian cysts can be of two types - follicular cysts and luteal cysts.
Follicular ovarian cysts appear in the first half of the menstural cycle i.e before ovulation, while the luteal ovarian cysts appear in the second half i.e after ovulation. In case of follicular cysts, the egg is retained within the follicle and continues to grow and becomes enlarged and filled with fluid. These kind of ovarian cysts generally symptomfree and diagnosed accidently through ultrasound.
Luteal Ovarian cysts develop in the second half of the cycle, after ovulation. After the egg is release from the follicle it develops into corpus luteum which normally produces progesterone hormone but in this case it is filled with blood and a cyst is formed. This is called luteal Ovarian cyst.

Some cysts develop from cells on the outer surface of the ovaries. They grow big in size and they are attached to ovary by a stem. They generally do not cause remarkable symptoms but sometimes they can twist on their stem and lead to an emergency. These cysts are called Cystadenoma cysts of ovaries.

Dermoid cysts should be considered as tumours rather than simply cysts. Every one of your eggs has the potential to create another human being, and dermoid cysts are effectively structures that are filled with pieces of bone, teeth, hair and skin. so these kind of cysts can become malignant.
Sometimes large number of small cysts develop in the ovaries, generally accompanied by hormonal imbalance. This is called 'Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS. Although they are nt big cysts but still they resemble them and cause problems.
