I went to the doctor just last thursday and they told me

I went to the doctor just last thursday and they told me that I had a cyst on my right ovary and they said it was only 2.7cm. which is not big at all(from what they said). Then they had called me the next day and said that it had looked like it had ruptured and was leaking a little fluid. I've been having all of the pregnancy symptoms for a while this is my third missed period! I never got any pain up until about a week or so ago so I was wondering if a cyst that tiny could cause so many problems for me. Any test i take is negative.JA: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?Customer: I've been keeping some note on my period tracker thats on my phone but other than that noJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Not that I can think of.
