I got my normal period in the middle of June. Two weeks after it stopped I started bleeding lightly and bled for 2.5 weeks. That bleeding stopped, and four days later I woke up with excruciating pain in my right ovary and am now spotting dark brown. I have been on a progesterone only birth control for six years. I have never missed or been late taking it, and it does not come with sugar pills. My doctor cannot see me for a month. Any idea what is going on? :(
I see that it has been a while since you posted, and I wondered how you are doing. Was Paul's suggestion of a cyst correct? I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but the sharp pain is worrisome. I hope all is well with you, and please let us know how you are doing. I'm sure your experience could be a great benefit to others in the community.
Best of luck,

Pain Down There
You may have a cyst. Did you make the doctor appointment after you woke up with pain, or before? You want to make sure they understand what you are experiencing. I'm not a doctor, but it seems like if it is a cyst it may have ruptured and is bleeding, which dark brown blood is old blood.
It's a little late for advice and I hope in the past few days you have not had more pain, but I also hope you've made clear to the doctor's office all of your symptoms you have. Perhaps they can get you in sooner.
