Can Ovarian Cysts Give A False Positive
If an ovarian cyst gave a false positive last yr and I've taken 3 tests last week and all r pos, could a cyst be the reason why again?
Preg test: I assume you are referring to a positive pregnancy test. If 3 tests report positive results then you need to see a doctor and determine if you are pregnant. Do not assume it is due to a cyst. If you are sexually active at all it could be a pregnancy. ...Read more

Can an small abnormal ovarian cyst cause a false positive ovulation test? First day of positive OPK. Regular 28day cycle. Chart shows ovulation as wel
Probably: Depends on what the definition of "small abnormal cyst" is? But any follicle that's functional can trigger an lh surge to start the ovulation process. The other possibility if you were scanned at a particular cycle day, is that you ovulated before the scan even as close as minutes before the scan and the early corpus luteum could be missed leaving only the "small cyst" to be seen on ultrasound. ...Read more

How do women get ovarian cysts? I was told having ovarian cysts can be fatal, is this true or false? And how do we get them and why do we get them? Why do they hurt so bad when it bursts?
Ovarian cysts are most often "follicular" in origin. This means that the ovary is trying to ovulate and doesn't release the egg or "luteinize", which means become a corpus luteum. It will then persist or sometimes enlarge. Follicular cysts appear black on ultrasound as they contain only fluid (which transmits the sound better than tissue).
Another type of ovarian cyst is a hemorrhagic corpus luteum. This too is related to ovulation. During the release of the egg, the wall of the follicle may break through a blood vessel causing bleeding in the abdomen or into the cyst cavity. These will appear acutely often accompanied by pain. On ultrasound they have "mixed echogenicity" meaning a combination of solid and cystic components. Women can have significant bleeding with hemorrhagic cysts particularly if they are on blood thinners or have bleeding disorders. Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts will often resolve over time spontaneously and require surgery on some occasions.
Ovarian cyst that continue to enlarge are suspicious for neoplasms or tumors. These can be benign or malignant (cancerous). A common benign tumor is a teratoma, often called a "dermoid" tumor.
For functional cysts (follicular and corpus luteum) prevention is commonly afforded through the use of oral contraceptives. ...Read more

You need to follow your doctor's plans for treatment. ...Read more
