Brief Answer:
Can be withdrawal bleeding.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The bleeding from vagina is not likely to be from a ruptured cyst. A ruptured cyst causes a bleeding inside the abdomen and is associated with an acute pain in the lower abdomen.
Just 2 tablets of loestrin can cause a mild withdrawal bleeding. The dark colored blood that you are having could be due to a left over blood from your last period.
If there is no associated pain in the abdomen and the bleeding is not severe then there is no need to worry. You can wait for it to stop spontaneously in next 2-3 days. In case the bleeding persists or becomes heavier then do consider visiting your gynecologist for proper investigations and treatment.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Brief Answer:
Can be due to ovarian cyst rupture.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
If there is a pain in the area of left ovary then a ruptured cyst needs to be ruled out after an ultrasound scan - TVS. Do attend an ER and avoid taking any pain killers for symptomatic relief as this can aggravate bleeding.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?
