Normal: Brown blood at the start of a period is completely normal. Lower back pain could be associated with period, or with something like endometriosis. Or it could just be back pain due to musculoskeletal strain. A 2cm cyst is normal, almost all of us women have a cyst this size in our cycle at some point.
