My period and ruptured ovarian cyst occurred at the same time. How soon can I try to get pregnant if still bleeding?

No reason to wait: Ruptured ovarian cysts are common and really do not impact the ability to get pregnant - unless you have a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome, in which fertility is a huge problem.

Don't blame the pill, but you should see your doctor to find the cause. ...Read more
