Customer Question
Hi - I experienced...

Hi - I experienced an ovarian cyst rupture (ongoing pain for about 2 months) which finally subsided. My periods were normal. Now, I am experiencing heavier thicker mucus (floating) clots. I guess I find it odd because I've experienced clots before generally on the first day of my period however this seems more thick with a lot of floating matter (excuse the detail) just wondering if this is normal or maybe potentially somehow tied to the ruptured cyst?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

Yes

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Recently (since the ovarian cyst rupture) I started experiencing palpitations and what a few doctors presumed to be panic attacks caused by potential hypoglycemia. I had an EKG and have been checked several times by 4 different doctors saying my heart and lungs sound fine, even though at times mildly tachychardic. Unsure if any of that is relevant but its all new to me. I do not have any STDs. I have not been pregnant.

I am sorry you are having heavier periods.

usually a ruptured ovarian cyst will not really affect your menstrual flow

lighter periods in the past months sometimes can cause heavier periods later on

uterine fibroids can cause heavier periods.

if your periods continue to be heavy, you may need blood tests to check your iron and ferritin levels which can be low if you loose a lot of blood

if you have bad anxiety symptoms, you may need medications to help you decrease anxiety symptoms.

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
