Anybody have a negative blood test and still been pregnant? or ovarian cyst?

i am 35 days late and am usually very regular. we are trying to concieve our second child, i took a blood test 17 days late, it was negative, i have had no changes in diet or exercise, im in no pain, and its not stress, ive heard an ovarian cyst could cause a late period, are there any other symptoms other than that, and has anyone gotten a negative blood test and actually been pregnant?

Anybody have a negative blood test and still been pregnant? or ovarian cyst?
I've had the ovarian cyst and I swore I was pregnant. My breasts hurt, I even had minor spotting. However, my dr did a blood test and it was negative. He then did an ultrasound which confirmed the cyst. He gave me a progesterone shot to bring on my period. I would think though that you're not pregnant. Another option is that you may not have ovulated at all. To have a period you must ovulate. If you haven't gotten your period by the end of the month, I'd see your doctor again. Good luck!

Is it possible to have a false positive pregnancy test if you have an ovarian cyst?

I took 3 home P.T. and they came out positive. I went to my hospital to do a lab pregnancy test and also positive. But I had a miscarriage in October and found out I have a huge ovarian cyst in left ovary. Do cysts interfere with a pregnancy test???

no I have them as well. start taking some extra naps and your prenatal vitamins honey you are preggo. congrats.
Reply:normally a postive test is not mistaken!! the negative test can be wrong thats why you always wanne try a couple of times!! What did your doctor say???
Reply:I don't think cysts interfere with a pregnancy test. ANyone can get a false positive - cysts or not. In all of the tests you took, did the positive show up during the alloted time? You can get a false positive if the tests sits for too long.

Everyone gets a cyst, called a corpus luteum, on the ovary they ovulated from when they get pregnant. At my first ultrasound my cyst was the size of a golfball. That cyst is what releases the hormones and sustains the pregnancy for the first 8 weeks or so.

Congrats!! I think you're pregnant. If you are still unsure I would call your doctor and see if they can give you a blood test so that you know for sure.

I had surgury about 2 months ago (lost ovary, tube and giant cyst removed...........?

It may not have anything to do with it but - my period this month came with and awful infection (don't know if UTI, bladder or kidney) my cyst was putting pressure on my kidney. I have had infections before (usually when I take antibiotics) but it has not every really been this bad - it seems as if it is bleeding but I can't really tell due to my period - I bought on of those test but only after buying do you find out is does not work when you are on your period and or taking asorbic acids.

I know - go to the doctor - but what do you think it may be.

i think you need to go to the ER, screw the doctor...could be complications from the surgery...
Reply:You should really go to the doctor. Something probably went wrong with your surgery or your body has to cope with the loss.
Reply:yes, you will need goes see your doctor. Tell them that you had a surgery. They will solve the problem when you had a surgery.
Reply:2 months post surgery developing an infection? No, I don't think so,when you had the surgery, the doctor most probably had given you a prophylactic antibiotic, so infection will not set in, the wound by this time must be completely healed. after your discharge, sure, the doctor will give you an appointment after 1 or 2 weeks to check on you. maybe it's only dysmenorrhea.

Is there anything I can do at home to heal a nodular cyst?

I just didn't know if I could promote the healing of a nodular cyst without going to see a doctor. I get one every so often on my face, and they take forever, it seems, to go away, and I usually end up irritating them before they heal, making them stay longer. ...Thank you all for your time and help.

If you have the problem of nodular cysts occuring again and again, you should do two things.

take treatment of Isiotretinoin.

Treat the acne before it becomes a cyst.

Treatment Regimen For Severe Acne

In severe form of acne, you may have nodules and cysts that are all inflamed. Treating this acne takes more time and patience. Your doctor will treat you with combination therapy to control and cure the acne while trying to take care that minimum scars form. The treatment regimen for severe acne may include physical as well as oral and topical treatments. The options may include- isotretinoin, oral antibiotics, oral contraceptives for female patients, injecting corticosteroid in the lesions and surgical procedure. Let us find out more about these.


Isotretinoin is one of the most potent treatments for severe form of acne which has not responded well to other therapies. Isotretinoin is a retinoid which is a form of vitamin A. Isotretinoin helps treat all the four reasons of acne formation:

a. Excess oil,

b. Clogged pores,

c. Inflammation, and

d. The bacteria p.acnes.

The normal course of isotretinoin is one or two pills a day for up to twenty weeks. Your dermatologist will decide the dose. Don't take Isotretinoin without medical supervision.

Side Effects Of Isotretinoin:

For women, it is very important to be in constant contact with their doctor because isotretinoin can cause damage to development of fetus. It cannot be given during pregnancy and before the treatment begins, all possibilities of pregnancy have to be eliminated. Talk to your doctor in detail about this and follow his/her instructions very strictly. The other side-effects of isotretinoin may include joint pains, headaches, nausea, depression and others. You must not miss your appointment with your doctor while taking isotretinoin.

Oral Antibiotics:

Broad spectrum antibiotics can reduce the bacteria p.acnes substantially. With reduction in the population of this bacterium, inflammation reduces. The antibiotic may include drugs such as - tetracycline, erythromycin, doxycycline, etc.

Oral Contraceptives For Female Patients:

Overactive sebaceous glands produce more sebum and are one of the main causes of acne. Some oral contraceptives can reduce the production of excessive sebum. These drugs should be taken only under medical supervision. Sometimes, you may have to consult the gynaecologist, for which your doctor will advise you.

Injecting Corticosteroid In The Lesion:

In this treatment, a mild steroid is injected in the cyst. The steroid reduces the acne substantially within a few days. This treatment also prevents scarring as it reduces the possibility of bursting of a cyst and dries it totally.

Surgical Procedure:

Your doctor may find it necessary to cut open the acne and drain it. This procedure needs skill and patients should not try this themselves.


My follicle measures at 3 cm there not sure if its a cyst or a follicle does anyone have any idea?

this is my first month on clomid and foud out that i may have a cyst there not really sure untill my next period his this a good sign that clomid is working or bad sign am really confused

My follicle measures at 3 cm there not sure if its a cyst or a follicle does anyone have any idea?
I have talked to others who have done Clomid and had a problem with cysts because of it but I've also met a few women who took Clomid and got pregnant easily. One of the ladies that I know that had done Clomid only did it for a short time and she was able to get pregnant and had a set of twins.

I would recommend getting another opinion, and preferably from someone that does not share the same office of the doctor you currently use to see what they think.

In the mean time here's the link to a site that may help you find even more information. It's at:

What should I do if I think I might have an ovarian cyst?

I have a really sharp pain in my lower left abdominal area, it started during sex and it's been two days now, and it's still pretty intense. I've just been taking pain killers so I can deal with it, I'm hoping it will pass because I don't have insurance. From eveything I've read and talking to people, I'm thinking it might be an ovarian cyst, has anyone had this? Can it just go away?

What should I do if I think I might have an ovarian cyst?
When I was 20, I had a fairly large ovarian cyst. I figured "no big deal. I'll just get it removed". Well I had the surgery only they didn't remove the cyst. They sewed it open so that it wouldn't occur again. Then, the summer I turned 23, I got really really sick. It lasted off and on for about 6 months or more. People were asking me if I was pregnant and everything. Finally I got so sick that I could barely walk. I thought maybe it was a UTI, as dumb as that sounds. But because I get them frequently, it wouldn't be unheard of. So, my boyfriend at the time took me to the ER and they admitted me for testing. About a week after that, I had an MRI and they told me I had an extremely large mass in my abdomen. They transferred me to a larger hospital and in two days, we found out through surgery, that since I had let the pain go on for so long, that 2 abnormally huge cysts had grown on my ovary and had also grown into my intestinal wall. The surgeon had to remove the cysts as well as one of my ovaries. The kicker of the whole long story is this: two years before my surgery, I had to go in for an MRI and the doctor told me that I had a very tiny cyst on my ovary and that I wasn't to worry because most women do develop cysts during their menstrual cycle that will or may burst either during or after their period.

Ok, I know I have been long winded and I apologize. But if you are that concerned about your pain being an ovarian cyst, then you should really at least try to go to planned parenthood to get it checked out. Most of the time, planned parenthood either accepts donations for their services or they have a sliding scale fee system that goes by your income. There may be someone that they could refer you to that could find out for sure what you are experiencing and the treatment for it.
Reply:Go to your doctor to find out.
Reply:You should see a doctor right away, my girlfriend had one, she had to have surgery because she waited so long and it just got bigger, don't just hope it's nothing and wait, better safe than sorry.
Reply:Ovarian cysts usually go away on their own in a few months. They can either rupture, or spontaneously reabsorb into the body. Although it is recomended that you see a doctor especially if the pain is intense and you are over child bearing age. If the pain is unbearable, and it lasts for more than 3 menstrual cycles, its probably a good idea to see a doctor because in rare causes, cancer can evolve. Some may perform surgery on the cyst, but that depends on the size, your age, symptoms, and your desire to have children. The doctor may also simply monitor the cyst. If the pain isn't unbearable, because you don't have insurance you should probably wait it out a couple months and hope it dissolves on its own. Good luck!
Reply:See a doctor right away. I guess it is possible for one to just go away, but it would be a very bad chance to take. My wife had one removed just yesterday along with the ovary it was on. Thank god not cancerous. Insurance or not, see the doc ! Good luck.
Reply:go to the ER they cannot refuse you
