See a doctor: It can be anything and you need to see your ob/gyn doctor, so a physical exam can be done to determine the actual cause, since your symptoms are so broad. If you feel it's an ovarian cyst, your doctor can determine whether it needs to be imaged, based on your physical, abdominal, and pelvic examination. Your history, onset of current symptoms, recurrences, and palpation will yield best results. ...Read more

Ruptured cyst: It is very common for ovarian cysts to rupture, and at that time, you can have abdominal cramping that feels like a period. This is nothing to worry about.

Ovarian cyst rupture 3 weeks ago , i'm late for my period & having upper & lower abdomen pain breast tenderness & menstrual cramps , why ? Normal ?

Cyst: If you're late for your period, the first thing you should do is take a home pregnancy test. It sounds like the symptoms you're having are premenstrual and it's possible you'll have your menstrual cycle in a couple of days. 600 mg Ibuprofen can help with the pain you are describing. ...Read more

Tubes tied and ovarian cysts with no period since may what could this mean? Had a baby in april this year

Tubes tied and ovarian cysts  with no period since may what could this mean? Had a baby in april this year

Not sure: Without a history I can't tell what is going on. You had a baby in April and sometimes some women do not get their periods until months after a pregnancy. If you are breastfeeding, that may be the cause of your amenorrhea. The cysts you mention may be normal cysts or may signify another process. Tying tubes does not affect your period. You will need to be evaluated by an OBGYN for diagnosis. ...Read more

I am on loestrin 24 fe for about a year with sometime no period or just light. Also this month pain on right side - could it be ovarian cysts?

Pelvic pain: Given that you are on birth control, the chance of ovarian cysts and pregnancy are certainly decreased. First, the lighter or absent periods is common on the pill. Second, the lower dose pills might be associated with less effective suppression of cyst formation. You need to perform a pregnancy test, and if your pain is significant, you need to contact your doctor for an exam and ultrasound! ...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

Pregnant: if you have 3 positive test you are pregnant. Politely I am skeptical about your previous cyst: many ovarian cysts can cause skipped periods, but only 1 can give a positive hCG and it is a unusual tumor so I doubt you had that. Good news and good wishes. ...Read more

My last period oct18, finished taking Duphaston 10days ago, negative hCG urine test, no ovarian cyst, today dec17 and no period, what can it be?

No menses: If you do not have bleeding after Progesterone withdrawal, there can be several causes. 1) pregnant and too early to check urine 2) the lining of the endometrium is too thin to get a bleed (called a silent period by some) 3) something blocking the cervix (doubtful because last month regular period).
