Well, im but even sure if this is a cyst. Git a while I thought I might be pregnant since af never showed up and I had what I thought was implantation spotting. Several bfns later, and almost 3 weeks after the brief spotting, here I am with craps still like af is gong to come. Been having them on and off for the lat week or week and a half. My question is if it is a cyst, how long (days/weeks wise) would this intermittent cramping continue? Is this something that warrants a Dr visit or more of a wait and see type thing? Is there still a possibility that I could be pregnant despite bfn nearly 2 weeks after I thought af would come?

This is old but I hope you're better by now.

I would definitely head to the doctor. I've had plenty of cysts but am no expert. I just think it should be checked out with an ultrasound and possibly a blood test. My cycles have been thrown off and because of the most recent change (one day long period) and the continuation of pain, a doctor I saw ordered both blood tests and an ultrasound to rule out ovary issues like cysts and inflammation.

I know I've had cysts of different kinds and lots&lots of pain of different kinds and serious issues with my cycle. And, I couldn't get the help I needed from a Dr, I tried very much to but it can be a tricky path in my experience.
