Yes its common: It is common to have irregular cycles if you have ovarian cysts. Some women will not ovulate thus not have a cycle for months if they have a large ovarian cyst. I recommend you see your ob/gyn if this persists for more than three months. As long as the brown discharge isn't foul smelling this is unlikely an infection and is related to not having your menstrual cycle.
