ok so i have been in pain for weeks went to the ER after 4 days of being in pain and they said i had an cyst on my left ovary. i have also been feeling pregnant and have every symptom of pregnancy but every test has come back negative can having a cyst make you feel pregnant? or cause false negatives on pregnancy test? my lmp was the end of may. i have had spotting for 2 days and thats it.
Kind of the same thing happened to me. I went to the ER with severe cramping and heavy bleeding. They found a cyst on my left ovary, initially though that was causing the pain. My cycles were way off, was like 3 weeks late for my period but I was also off the pill and trying to conceive. Then they did a pregnancy test and it came back positive. They then checked my hcg levels (pregnancy horomone) and it was like 350. They couldn't see anyting on the u/s, so they said it's either too early to see anything or I'm miscarrying. Anyways, a friend of mine told me how her sister had a pregnancy test that was positive and turned out to be a cyst (a big one) which caused a false positive. I talked to the doctor about that and he said my cyst isn't what caused it and that I am (was) indeed pregnant. I ended up passing the fetal tissue a few days later. So, my thinking is that maybe the cyst is causing your body to think your pregnant but your not. Did they do a blood test to check for pregnancy?? If they didn't I would request that and ask them to check your hcg levels. Anything over 5 is pregnant. I hope you aren't miscarrying, but then again you really don't know for sure if you are pregnant. I would google cysts and false pregnancy and see what you find about it. Best of luck to you.
yes they did a blood test and that was negative too but i have a birth control that i read can mess that up too. when i had my first child i didn't find out until 3months with test. so i didn't know if it could be a combo everything. sry i forgot to put that too but thanks for the help! very much appreciated
