  • I had an ectopic and I had pain on my side it was a bit low. Itll also spread around the abdomen area. You can have lightheadedness, and bleeding but not bleeding like menstrual blood but its a dark color blood if you have that for sure its ectopic its internal bleeding. I would go get checked out. My dr was telling me everything was just fine and I knew somethign wasnt right. I ended up in the ER at 4 in the morning having surgery. Go get checked out. Worst case scenerio its nothing and you over reacted.

  • I just went to the ER for the same thing and it IS probably your cyst because that is what mine is. I was worrying myself sick but every woman gets a cyst on the side that they ovulate gives the baby nutrients and hormones until the placenta is developed around 12-13weeks. The bad news is it only gets bigger til then lol if you are aware you have a cyst than that is probably what is causing the pain but as always you need to go if you think that is the right thing to do....nobody knows your body like you do! Good luck
