Can the morning after pill cause an ovarian cyst and cause it to burst? Took it 5 days ago, and after sex I got a really sharp ovarian pain and nausea

Have an exam: The pill would not cause a cyst or burst one, but your pain needs attention. While there, get good info on this entire issue. Don't use that pill as birth control. Do use protection for STDs as well as pregnancy. Do learn how to take good care of yourself — it will pay off for decades to come. Best wishes! ...Read more

I think I have an ovarian cyst. After sex, I had some light bleeding, is that a symptom?

Not likely the cause: Typically, ovarian cysts don't cause bleeding unnless they rupture or get twisted onto their own tubes etc... Light bleeding after sex is quite common for those having a male partner who is a bit on the long-side--repetitious trauma of the penis pushing/thrushing on the cervix which can bleed a bit. If u have some cervical polyps, fibroids, infections, cancer, bleeding is even more common. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe cervicitis?: Bleeding after sex is often due to cervicitis, i.e. inflammation of the cervix; penile contact can make fragile tissues bleed. Some cervicitis is due to chlamydia or gonorrhea, but many cases are not related to STDs. See your gynecologist; it should be pretty easy to find the cause. Good luck. ...Read more

Could severe cramps while running be caused by my ovarian cysts? I run often and these cramps usually only occur close to menstrual and last a while.

Possibly: Although the Cysts might be causing your cramps, more likely the cramping is menstrually related-that is related to hormonal changes occurring with your cycle. You need to follow up with a Gyn. You possibly need a thorough examination, hormone studies and Ultrasound to help define exactly what is going on. Generally, at your age, severe cramping is not unusual but can be helped. ...Read more

Intense Ovarian cyst cramps at night on two birth controls already (iud and lo estrin) is this normal?

Pelvic pain: While you may hurt in the area where ovaries lie, it is extremely rare to have cramps or pain from ovaries unless you have a very large cyst or are ovulating which your birth control pill would prevent. I would recommend being evaluated for another source of pain such as uterine cramping, intestinal cramps, musculoskeletal pain. Also, make sure you are drinking 2liters of water per day ...Read more

If an ovarian cyst twists can they save your ovary? I've been having bad pain, bloating & vaginal cramps.

If an ovarian cyst twists can they save your ovary? I've been having bad pain, bloating & vaginal cramps.

YES, very often: "Twisting" can be partial or complete; intermittent or persistent. If surgery by laparoscopy or laparotomy has to be performed, there is a very good chance that your ovary can be saved. The recommendation now is not to remove the ovary even if it does not look very "viable"; it will frequently retain good ovarian tissue and remain functional. ...Read more

Diagnosed with ovarian cyst 5 months ago. With believed on coming period, onset of 24 hour cramps. Wake up with very damp underwear. Water like. Why?

Diagnosed with ovarian cyst 5 months ago. With believed on coming period, onset of 24 hour cramps. Wake up with very damp underwear. Water like. Why?

Unclear: It's unlikely that the water (if it was water) in the cyst from the ovary would be related to your discharge. If a cyst breaks and the water in it spills, it's going to typically spill in our abdomen, not down through your tube and then uterus and then out vagina. Cramping likely has to do with your menstrual cycle. Discharge is normal every day. If discharge smells or itches, see md for evaluat. ...Read more
