Pelvic pain, low progesterone levels, ovarian cysts, what is wrong with me?

Hard to say..: These may not be related to each other. Many things can cause pelvic pain, if you have large ovarian cysts (>4cm) they may be the cause, but smaller ones less likely to cause pain.Low prog levels (&small ov cysts) are both normal during certain phases of menstrual cycle.
