Patient : I went to the ER last Saturday and was diagnosed with a hemmoroggic cyst on my left ovary. Just to give some background, I had stopped taking my birth control pills ( after 15 years) and hadn't got my period in three months. This week I've been bloated, crampy and tired. Pain comes and goes. But I have a very big appetite. Now, it appears I've gotten my period. But can cysts cause bleeding? I'm not in pain, just crampy. How can I tell if this is my period or from the cyst? If it is my period, is it likely the cyst will go away?b
