I took a hpt this morning because I wanted to see "pregnant" for myself. I read the infromation in the box and it said that ectopic or ovarian cysts can give a misleading result. Does that mean they could cause a false positive or a false negative? Do ovarian cysts produce HCG? I thought they only produced progesterone? I am confused. I really hope my level doubles tomorrow..it is so hard to wait. By the way, I forgot to mention that I know that I have three cysts on each ovary which is why I am concerned with a false positive. Could a blood test for pregnancy be false too?
nope, an ovarian cyst can't cause a false positive : ) sounds like its the real deal! CONGRATS and i'm hoping that you have wonderful numbers today! good luck! we'll be waiting for an update!!! tons of SSBD!
From what I have read on the internet, there are some ovarian cysts that secrete hcg, but they are very rare. I would think if your number is doubling appropriately and the doc knows about the cysts, everything is on the right track or he would tell you otherwise!
