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

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

Obviously you will have some pain from the surgery. Are you trying to get pregnant? Dont see the need for it unless you have problems conceiving. ...Read more
