Our expert says:
I would suggest that a pregnancy test be done as soon as possible as this may be an indication of early-threatened miscarriage or even an ectopic pregnancy. However should the pregnancy test be negative then the possibility of a persistent ovarian cyst should be ruled out by means of ultrasound scan. Occasionally this kind of menstrual abnormality may be seen in patients as a first sign of other hormonal imbalance such thyroid problems or even prolactin related problems and these should be tested for after ruling out any ovarian cyst.
