Menstrual : Menstrual irregularities are often associated with not ovulating. This is sometimes caused by a cyst, particularly if your periods are regular as a rule. There are other causes of mid cycle bleeding like fibroids, polyps and tumors. If it persists you should have it evaluated with an exam and possibly ultrasound.
