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 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

Pelvic pain: The pain that you are experiencing could be from the cyst. If the pain is not disabling it is prudent to observe it and repeat the ultrasound in a few weeks especially if it is done after a period. Frequent urination could be a sign of a UTI or an overactive bladder which could also cause pelvic pain. You need to follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

I had anal sex 2 weeks ago and 2 days later I had an emergency surgery removing an ovarian cysts. My period is late. Am I pregnant?
A very tiny chance: Women have more than one hole, but sperm must enter the correct hole in order to swim to the egg and create a pregnancy. Any activities in the wrong hole do not lead to pregnancy (unless other activities happen "in the heat of the moment"). One can consider using a reliable form of birth control if not wanting a baby, regardless of what sexual activities are going on, as life can be surprising. ...Read more

Ibuprofen: Ibuprofen would be my first recommendation for the occasional ovarian / ovarian cyst pain. If you have discomfort every month, birth control will keep the cysts under control, therefore minimizing any ovarian pain. Occasionally, a large cyst may leak or rupture causing severe pain. Most the time, this is still managed with prescription pain medicine and will resolve over a few days. ...Read more

OK: The definition of simple ovarian cyst is in comparison with complex cyst. Simple cyst is diagnosed with ultrasound, you will see a cystic structure in the ovary with echo-lucent (very clear). Very oftern, it is a non-ovulated follicle. It will disappear naturally without treatment. The complex cyst, on the other hand, with echogenic area inside of the cyst, needs further investigation. ...Read more
A normal process: A woman produces an ovarian cyst every month from alternating ovaries. This is called ovulation. Normally, an ovulatory cyst is about 20 mm maximum, but cysts can grow to be large and cause problems. Most cysts less than 4 cm will resolve after a cycle or two, but if they get bigger, they need to be followed carefully. Severe pain from "torsion" can occur when the ovary with cyst twists on itself. ...Read more
