As a doctor, do you think I'm pregnant if I got a positive test but I have a 5 CM ovarian cyst, & no gestational sac on ultrasound??

As a doctor, do you think I'm pregnant if I got a positive test but I have a 5 CM ovarian cyst, & no gestational sac on ultrasound??

Yes: the pregnancy test detects human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), which is produced by the trophoblast, which later becomes the placenta. An ovarian cyst will not produce HCG. If you are 3 to 5 weeks, the gestational sac is easily missed. Your OB will address the possiblility of a tubal pregnancy, and can confirm that you are not having a miscarriage by documenting a rising HCG level or repeat US. ...Read more
