I just experienced a string of events and am wondering if it's likely I had an ovarian cyst? I know they are common for some and maybe others have experienced similar symptoms?


My period was about a week late (negative pregnancy test) when this started:


Day 1: Mild stabbing pain in abdomen, right side, just above hip bone and deep (exact area the websites say is associated with ovary pains). On and off, lasting a few seconds, then gone, no particular pattern. Got more severe as day went on, had trouble sleeping through it - up several times to the pains, but just went back to sleep as they were always just *ping* and gone.


Day 2: Pain same throughout the day. Took Advil to take a nap. Pains back after Advil wore off. Against my better judgement, had intercourse that night. No pain during. Pains never returned!


Day 3: Menstrual-like cramps started. Discharge was not usual...sorry if TMI...the blood was bright pink and runnier than normal, so like it was fresh blood versus menstrual blood and also some blood clots. Tired, dizzy at times, low-energy - just that first day of bleeding. The bleeding lasted about 2 days (definitely not a full period!) and faded away.


It's Day 5 now and so I am curious as to what just happened! I know, I know...go see the doctor, but my midwife is out of town and I am waiting for her return, so just thought I'd do some research in the meantime.
