Is it possible an ovarian cyst can cause a false negative on a hpt ten years ago I had horrible cysts 2 ruptured and I had emergency surgery to stop internal bleeding. I am now 7 days late

Is it possible an ovarian cyst can cause a false negative on a hpt ten years ago I had horrible cysts 2 ruptured and I had emergency surgery to stop internal bleeding. I am now 7 days late

An: An ovarian cyst should not cause a false negative on a hpt, however there are other causes. These includs:
testing too early
error when performing the test
not reading the result when directed, i.e. Waiting too long to read the result
my advice would be to repeat the test if your period does not start in another week or so, or you can have one done in your doctor's office sooner.
Good luck. ...Read more

My period and ruptured ovarian cyst occurred at the same time. How soon can I try to get pregnant if still bleeding?

My period and ruptured ovarian cyst occurred at the same time. How soon can I try to get pregnant if still bleeding?

No reason to wait: Ruptured ovarian cysts are common and really do not impact the ability to get pregnant - unless you have a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome, in which fertility is a huge problem. In general if things are going well, the most likely time to get pregnant is about 2 weeks before your period which is when ovulation most commonly happens. Bleeding from the cyst may confuse timing. ...Read more
