Ovarian cyst/bleedin: Check a pregnancy test? May also be infection, (ureoplasma, mycoplasma, BV) check thyroid as well and prolactin. When we ovulate the egg is released from a cyst , was that the kind of cyst seen? or was it from polycystic ovarian disease or more pathologic cysts? At this point you will see someone tomorrow so do not worry, ,know that menstraul irregularities are very common and ovulation has cysts
