After intercourse I started bleeding. I have an ovarian cyst. Pregnancy test is negative. Does that mean the cyst is popped? No pain just blood.

Possibility: If you had a hemorrhagic cyst that popped, you may have some blood emerge from the uterus. If your cervix is friable or you weren't lubricated adequately you may also have some spotting/bleeding. One way to distinguish it is if it happens again with sex ...Read more

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

Seek evaluation: Important to seek evaluation with your physician or at the emergency room. If home pregnancy test suggests you are pregnant (no period in 2 months), it's even more urgent that you seek evaluation to exclude an ectopic pregnancy (nonviable pregnancy located outside the uterine cavity that is potentially life-threatening). ...Read more

I believe I had an ovarian cyst rupture last night after intercourse. The pain was unbearable! Today my ovaries are throbbing. Should I go to the ER?

I believe I had an ovarian cyst rupture last night after intercourse. The pain was unbearable! Today my ovaries are throbbing. Should I go to the ER?

Depends on pain: About the only treatment they can prescribe in the ER will be pain medications. If you can obtain pain relief with OTC pain meds (ibuprofen, naproxen, etc), then that may be all you need, acutely. If ovarian cysts are a problem, I suggest you consider Metformin and/or progesterone cream, which should give you some chronic relief. ...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

Can ovarian cysts lead to painful intercourse?

Perhaps: Ovarian cysts are usually not painful alone or with intercourse. This is why ovarian cancer grows to advanced stages before it is discovered.

Had a ovarian cyst drained, and have been bleeding for 10 days straight so it cannot be a period? Slight pain, should I be concerned?

Increased bleeding: The concern with vaginal bleeding is anemia. Since you recently had a procedure on you ovary, there may be some dysregualtion. If it is not decreasing (looking like it is tailing off) -would call you doctor. Hormones like BCP may help regulate for a few months. Could also be infection/other pathology f/u with doc over next 24-48 hours. ...Read more

Maybe: Heavy midcycle bleeding may be related to hormones related to a persistent ovarian cyst. If the cyst hasn't resolved, medical therapy may be indicated to suppress the cyst and if persistent, surgical intervention may be required for resolution. Ultrasound characteristics of the cyst can be important for determining if surgery is indicated. ...Read more
