What is the cause of ruptured ovarian cyst blood clots during period?

What is the cause of ruptured ovarian cyst blood clots during period?

Normal: Each month, during an ovulatory cycle, one or more ovarian cysts are formed. One usually predominates and ruptures mid-cycle, liberating the egg.
When the lining of the uterus is shed, bleeding occurs and clots form. If the uterus holds onto the clots, they will break down and the blood darken, resulting in a dark menstrual flow. If the uterus is irritable, the clots can be expelled as they form. ...Read more

My daughter is now fourteen since age ten she has been getting I ovarian cysts that rupture at least once a year she hasn't started her period yet?

My daughter is now fourteen since age ten she has been getting I ovarian cysts that rupture at least once a year she hasn't started her period yet?

Doesn't make sense: Something does not add up here. If her ovaries are so active that she is getting ovarian cysts that rupture then she should also have gone through puberty and be having menstrual cycles. If this is true then she should see a gynecologist who has experience and interest in pediatric gynecology to better evaluate this contradictory problem. ...Read more

Hard to say: It is hard to predict when someone will have a period if they are not following their normal past history of cycle length. A cyst can disrupt but usually does not. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. Then see an Obgyn to discuss options for cycle regulation. Birth control pills can be used to decrease the risk of ovarian cyst formation ...Read more

Prob normal: With the interruption of the "normal" ovarian cycle by the ruptured ovar cyst, it is not unusual for the next cycle and menses to be different. It can be normal, heavier, or less than usual.

My period and ruptured ovarian cyst occurred at the same time. How soon can I try to get pregnant if still bleeding?

My period and ruptured ovarian cyst occurred at the same time. How soon can I try to get pregnant if still bleeding?

No reason to wait: Ruptured ovarian cysts are common and really do not impact the ability to get pregnant - unless you have a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome, in which fertility is a huge problem. In general if things are going well, the most likely time to get pregnant is about 2 weeks before your period which is when ovulation most commonly happens. Bleeding from the cyst may confuse timing. ...Read more

I recently had an ovarian cyst rupture, I am also on birth control and I was supposed to get my period 3 days ago, would the cyst make it late?
