Is pink/brownish spotting normal while having ovarian cyst? The radiologist told me it happens when the cyst size is reducing. Is this so?

Is pink/brownish spotting normal while having ovarian cyst? The radiologist told me it happens when the cyst size is reducing. Is this so?

Sort of: Assuming that this is right around the time of ovulation, then there is a brief, abrupt drop in estrogen levels that leads to a small amount of mid-cycle spotting. This is also about the time that a dominant cyst releases and egg and will appear to change / decrease in size. ...Read more

Not usually: Spotting is a very common problem. Infections, hormonal changes, weight changes, stress and other causes are common. Ovarian cysts are also very common. Although both can be present at the same time ovarian cysts are not really a direct cause of vaginal spotting. See an Obgyn who can evaluate your irregular bleeding and evaluate to see if you have a cyst ...Read more

Could a ruptured ovarian cyst cause light spotting followed by sharp stabbing pains the following day..

I'm on my first month of LoEstrin Fe to dissolve an ovarian cyst.  I'm on day 22 of my normal cycle but day 11 of the pill.  I'm spotting.  Normal?

Can be: Normally we like to start pill on first day of period, but not always practical. The dose of the pill may not be high enough to offset your body's normal cycle and that could explain the spotting. The pill may blunt your normal period resulting in less bleeding than normal. I am assuming your gyn doctor recommending several cycles of pill. If issue continues, discuss with them. Change pill? ...Read more
