Could i be pregnant or could this be caused by ovarian cysts?

    I have PCOS myself, and let me tell you, be GLAD your periods were only a week, rofl. But seriously, I think you need to give your body some time to be off the depo and adjust the hormones, especially since its already struggling with ovarian cysts. I don't think your pregnant nor do I think the cysts called the bleeding, I vote hormones!
