I've missed my period by several days the pregnancy tests say negative but I have ovarian cysts. Could I be pregnant?

Unlikely: If did the test correctly and did it a week or so after the missed period, you are not likely to be pregnant. If you do not get your period in the next 4-5 days you may wish to repeat the pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions in the kit carefully.
