How are you? An ovarian cyst diagnosed in early pregnancy may be caused by a variety of issues. One kind is due to a physiological cyst known as the corpus luteum which is a normal finding during this time. This usually resolves spontaneously after the first trimester and will not have any adverse effect on the pregnancy. Depending on the initial findings, repeat scan may be performed to monitor the cyst. However, if an ovarian cyst ruptures, twists or if there is bleeding into the middle of the cyst, further evaluation may need to be done. It is best that you discuss the results of your scan with your doctor to ease any worry. Take care and do keep us posted.
