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.
Dr. Mark Trolice

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.

Yes: Ovarian cyst are hormone dependent. Most of the time we see growth during first stage of pregnancy when the ovary is the source of hormones for the embryo. At aprox 10 wks. The placenta takes over hormone production and the pregnancy becomes independent of the ovary and this is when we expect the cyst to shrink. Nevertheless ovarian chat should have close f/u during pregnancy.

Check a preg test : Over the counter pregnancy tests are cheap and reliable. Go do one and then you will know and you won't have to worry about it any more. If you don't want to be pregnant see your doctor for effective birth control.

Probably not: Some bleeding after intercourse is not unusual. It doesn't represent pregnancy at all, but it also doesn't mean you aren't. If there is any question, take a home pregnancy test. As for the bleeding, it should resolve on it's own. You need to see your doctor if it persists or pain worsens.
