Hi and welcome.

Since you had cysts, abdominal pain and you are spotting this needs thorough examination and evaluation. I would suggest you to get an ultrasound and followup with your doctor or go to urgent care for full physical examination so that exact cause can be found. If you think you can be pregnant do perform a home pregnancy test as well.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Hello

A home pregnancy test is not necessarily accurate yet.

It will be the day your period is due.

If you want a test now, blood test.

I am a double board certified US doctor.

Find me as needed.

HI, the system will not let me edit so I will continue here.

Other problems causing bleeding can be

hormonal imbalance

uterine problems such as fibroids.

thyroid problems

liver or kidney problems

severe stress or physical stress.

Let me know if you have more questions.
