Tubes tied and ovarian cysts with no period since may what could this mean? Had a baby in april this year

Not sure: Without a history I can't tell what is going on. You had a baby in April and sometimes some women do not get their periods until months after a pregnancy. If you are breastfeeding, that may be the cause of your amenorrhea. The cysts you mention may be normal cysts or may signify another process. Tying tubes does not affect your period. You will need to be evaluated by an OBGYN for diagnosis. ...Read more

I am on loestrin 24 fe for about a year with sometime no period or just light. Also this month pain on right side - could it be ovarian cysts?

Pelvic pain: Given that you are on birth control, the chance of ovarian cysts and pregnancy are certainly decreased. First, the lighter or absent periods is common on the pill. Second, the lower dose pills might be associated with less effective suppression of cyst formation. You need to perform a pregnancy test, and if your pain is significant, you need to contact your doctor for an exam and ultrasound! ...Read more

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

Could an ovarian cyst cause you to have black discharge during the next period?

Could an ovarian cyst cause you to have black discharge during the next period?

Not per se: An ovarian cyst by itself should not alter the menstrual bleeding. However, depending on the type of cyst, it may be associated with hormonal disturbance.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
