Its important to rule out pregnancy in first place if you are sexually active.
If you are taking/ have taken emergency contraceptive pill this is a common side effect.
Please do serum beta hCG if you are sexually active, if positive report to the local Gynae immediately. If negative then do urine preg test every 7 days with first morning sample till you get proper flow.
If you are not active then you must do an ultrasound to rule out polycystic ovaries and ovarian cysts etc.
You may also need to do the following hormones on day 2 of cycle fasting..FSH, LH, Prolactin,TSH.
Please send the above investigations for a better opinion.
If the bleeding has occurred after the sexual contact then a vaginal exam and Paps smear is mandatory.
best wishes

I am a relatively healthy 49 yo woman 5 4 140lbs. In March I had a large ovarian cyst and both fallopian tubes removed. I am having periodic sharp pains at or near the incision sites. Generally it is just above the incision sites. How long should the pain remain? The pain gets worse closer to my cycle.

Hi Doctor,In my ultrasound scan it was detected i have bulky left ovary with size 4.9x3.7cm with multiple cysts. Few blood hemorrages are also found. Now i am advised to use Contraceptive pills everyday for 3 cycles. This will stop me from conceiving. Is this really to worry ? Since my Right ovary is normal should i wait or start with the medication? Need to mention i have regular periods (27-29 days cycle) with normal flow. I haven t gained weight and no unusual symptoms found.

I have a past with ovarian cysts. Not a fun one. I m 16 years old and have had 3 surgeries to remove them. This last one, they didn t remove. I had crippling pain for months. I still have the pain but it s dulling down. yet I can still feel pressure. I have had doctor after doctor tell me it s all in my head so don t try that. I ve been to countless counselors, therapists, psychiatrists, they can t find anything wrong with my mental health. Ovarian cancer is very prevalent in my family history. Should I be concerned?
