What is the cause of ruptured ovarian cyst blood clots during period?

What is the cause of ruptured ovarian cyst blood clots during period?

Normal: Each month, during an ovulatory cycle, one or more ovarian cysts are formed. One usually predominates and ruptures mid-cycle, liberating the egg. When the lining of the uterus is shed, bleeding occurs and clots form. If the uterus holds onto the clots, they will break down and the blood darken, resulting in a dark menstrual flow. If the uterus is irritable, the clots can be expelled as they form. ...Read more

Vaginal ultrasouns showed 4cm hemoragic cyst on left ovary. Ive been seeing dried blood clots in urine midcycle . Could this be from the cyst?

You may wish to consult your doctor as the findings are inconsistent. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Transvaginal Ultrasound 5mm mass, no bloodflow. 1.1cm endometrium; 1.5cm probable hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Should I worry? Very heavy menses, IV Fe.

Transvaginal Ultrasound 5mm mass, no bloodflow. 1.1cm endometrium; 1.5cm probable hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Should I worry? Very heavy menses, IV Fe.

Sono not worrisome: The findings on your transvaginal sonogram do not seem to be cause for alarm but unfortunately they do not explain why you have "very heavy menses" and need IV Fe...which are "causes to worry". It would be good to consult a hematologist to rule out a blood coagulation disorder and a Reproductive Endocrinologist to find out why you may or may not be ovulating regularly and why you bleed heavily. ...Read more

4wks post d&c. Severe cramps no bleeding. Ultrasound shows hematoma in uterus. Hcg =6.6. Leuteal cyst on  ovary. What's going on?

Cervical Stenosis?: The doc on the scene would know more; however, based on what you have written, it sounds like you may have cervical stenosis. The basic idea is that the cervix won't open so menstrual blood can't get out and collects in the uterus. This is painful. Its usually treated with a D&C by dilating the cervix and cleaning out the clot. Best wishes! ...Read more

Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?

Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?

Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer. Your biggest concern appears to be the ovarian cyst, which is probably benign, but you need to be evaluated by your gyn. The hernia is an elective process, and the liver cyst is probably congenital. Fibroids and nabothian cyst can also be evaluated by your gyn. Take a breath and make an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more
