It is common for there to be some disruption of the cycle after a D&C or removal of a cyst, so this may be the reason for missing a period. The only way to know whether this is due to a pregnancy is to do a pregnancy test. Women differ in whether or not they have any symptoms and when these start, so they are not a reliable indicator of pregnancy.
