Can ovarian cysts cause bleeding after intercourse?

Ovarian cysts: An non-ruptured ovarian cyst would not have anything to do with bleeding after intercourse. A ruptured physiologic cyst (corpus luteum) could cause your period to happen earlier than expected. You should see your gyn.

No: The cyst does not cause bleeding. Following ovulation of the cyst and/or rupture, hormones changes may result in light vaginal bleeding. Bleeding following intercourse can also represent inflammation of the cervix. Your gynecologist can evaluate you.
