What might cause midcycle bleeding?.  I started Micronor (norethindrone) 1 1/2 months ago.  My last period was a week ago. I have polyps and one ovarian cyst.

Progesterone only: Micronor (norethindrone) doesn't contain estrogen, only progesterone. For this reason it doesn't give you a regular period each month. Your periods can be somewhat random while you are on this medication. It can come more than once per month and the duration of flow may be inconsistent. If you want one period a month, you may want to be on a pill with both estrogen and progesterone. ...Read more

Can ovarian cyst cause bleeding with tissue pieces from vagina for 3days? Then daily dull pain right side abdom, 4week bloating, late period not pregnant

Possible: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, i would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals. ...Read more

I have a PAINFUL ovarian cyst (diagnosed about a month ago at the ER). I just started my THIRD period (heavy bleeding) in a month. I'm worried.Advice?

See a GYN MD: The E.R. is great for emergent problems, but this situation needs a extensive examination by a GYN MD to determine if the ovarian cyst is the source of bleeding or something else gynecologically. A detailed history, physical and testing will be done and a treatment plan determined. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst on my left side.I just started bleeding, period isent due for two weeks?What is this?

2 Things: It's possible, though unlikely, that the ovarian cyst caused your bleeding. Most cysts aren't hormonally 'active' as it were and wouldn't affect the uterus' cycling. More likely is that you are having breakthrough bleeding, due to changes in your ovaries' production of estrogen and progesterone. See a doctor if the breakthrough bleeding continues. ...Read more

Period was 6 months late..Found I have 2mm ovarian cyst and have been bleeding for past month+ with big sized blood clots any idea why? Thank you inad

The most likely: Reason is irregular ovulation. Without cyclic changes in hormones estrogen is steadily produces causing growth of, then falling away of, the uterine lining. A 2mm cyst is barely detectable, sure not 6 cm? In any event, look up pcos. Do not despair if this is the problem; short term consider pill to prevent anemia. There are many good tx for pcos (see metformin) if that is the case. Gd luc. ...Read more

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
