Jersey Shore

Oh No: JWOWW Opens Up About Serious Medical Scare

With all the Snooki pregnancy madness, we almost missed out on the fact that her Jersey Shore BFF JWOWW recently suffered a medical emergency.

JWOWW revealed to InTouch (via Examiner) that she had to be rushed to the hospital last month after an ovarian cyst ruptured insider her body while she was at the gym. The star says that she nearly passed out on the treadmill from all the pain, and had to be taken to see a doctor. Yikes!

Ruptured ovarian cysts can be incredibly painful, and can sometimes be a sign of bigger issues like polycistic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or ovarian cancer. PCOS is a condition that can result in women having multiple ovarin cysts, skin problems, and trouble getting pregnant. PCOS and ovarian cancer doesn’t happen to all women who have ovarian cysts, but it is probably good for JWOWW to get herself checked out, just in case.

In good health news: JWOWW has announced that she has given up smoking and is working on her personal health.

With all this talk of babies, quitting smoking, and getting healthy, we think it’s safe to say that the Jersey Shore girls are really starting to grow up.
