Hey! I am new here and unsure where to post. I have 2 children already. Im not trying to conceive but will be happy either way.

I usually have 5 day periods and am exactly every 24 days. I was only 1 day late this month, not a big deal. Big change was it only lasted 2 days. Its been 16 days since i had my period started last, and i have not rid of the cramps! They are aggravating! Now i am having loss of appetite and have had a few insane headaches this past week that wouldnt go away.

I went to doc 3 days after cycle ended to reveal a complex ovarian cyst, which means its more than fluid, it had solids in it. Doctor didnt tell me size though. She ruled out pregnancy by urine and ultrasound.

My main question is; why am i still experiencing insane cramping? I have never dealt with this type of short period nor this long of cramping. I am not on birth control. Using protection. Has anyone dealt with this before?
Im due for period again in 8 days.
Also i have had plenty of cysts before but NEVER this sort of ongoing cramps.

How old are you...? Perhaps your symptoms have something to do with menopause...? Has your doctor ruled out endometriosis....? Perhaps the solids in the cyst are cause for pain...?

Im 26. No to menopause. Update since post:: my doctor did pelvic exam and states my right ovary is swolle from the cust that has ruptured and i am ovulating 3 days before my cycle is due. So i look about 5 months pregnant as i am so swollen and more swollen on right side, its more than noticeable even without a pelvic exam. I am due today for my cycle but it is no where in sight yet.
