What could be the cause of anemia in a 28 week old fetus, along with blood filled placental cysts?

I have a blood filled ovarian cyst and IV just missed a period. What could be rong, could the cyst be getting worse?
Possibly: I assume you were told about the cyst after having an ultrasound or ct scan. The most common cause of a missed period in a female of childbearing age is pregnancy. You should probably take a pregnancy test first. If that is negative you can move on to a thorough work-up with the gynecologist who ordered the imaging study. Be well. ...Read more

Can an 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst cause or make haemorrhoids & uterine prolapse reoccur or is it just coincidental
Gyn exam needed: A 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst is not likely to "cause or make hemorrhoids and pelvic prolapse worse."

Should I be worried about blood cysts? I keep noticing what I think would be best described as small blood cysts (blood filled pockets of skin) that generally pop easily (usually just by a little pressure from my finger, though they've been getting more d
I: I think it would be worth visiting your doctor to discuss this. One condition that can cause little "blood cysts" is thrombocytopenic pupura, which is caused by an abnormally low platelet count. If that's what's going on, then it would be important to know because it would put you at risk for major hemorrhages and because it could reflect other health problems. ...Read more

Usually not serious: It's very common to form ovarian cysts. Sometimes the fluid inside is clear (simple cyst) or the cyst is filled with blood (hemorrhagic cyst). For the most part, they are not dangerous at all. They resolve over time usually. If a hemorrhagic cyst is very big (5cm or more) it can cause discomfort/pain or lead to other bad outcomes (ovarian torsion) which is rare. Cysts rarely require surgery. ...Read more

Ovarian Cyst: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts are quite common. Many produce no symptoms at all, but others may cause pain in mid-cycle, especially if they rupture.

No: This would be unlikely. Ovarian cysts are their own thing. One caveat, some women with severe endometriosis (uterine tissue that is not in the uterus but still cycles and bleeds each month) can have tissue in the rectum that bleeds too. That is not something to guess about though. You may need a colonoscopy to sort this out. Don't wait to go in and get checked by your doctor. ...Read more

Corpus luteum cyst: After ovulation a structure forms called the corpus luteum. On occasion, the corpus luteum fills with fluid and becomes a "cyst". If the cyst fills with blood, it's called a hemorrhagic corpus luteum, and these are not uncommon.
