Welcome to ehealthforum

Ovarian cysts is a fluid filled sac in the ovary and causes menstrual irregularities,pelvic pain and can cause fertility problems.Since you are having brownish to black discharge it might be possible that the cyst has ruptured.It can be accompanied by pelvic pain or not.
You need to go to your Healthcare Provider urgently for examination and evaluation.

Take Care!
