How can you tell the difference between an ovarian cyst and ectopic pregnancy?

How can you tell the difference between an ovarian cyst and ectopic pregnancy?

A pregnancy test: The pain associated with an ovarian cyst can be indistinguishable from an ectopic (or tubal)pregnancy. A negative pregnancy test however, effectively rules out an ectopic pregancy. If the pregancy test is positive, an ultrasound is needed to be certain that the developing baby is located inside the uterus and not in the fallopian tube (which connects the ovaries to the uterus). ...Read more

What's the difference between the symptoms of ovarian cysts and an ectopic pregnancy? Can I tell the difference based on symptoms?

Rarely even for MD's: Differentiating between ovarian cyst pain and ectopic pregnancy is difficult for the laymen/patient. Even trained GYN MD's have to have an "index of suspicion" to look for ectopic pregnancies. The biggest clue for you is a missed or abnormal period (lighter than normal) and intermittent pain. The urine PG test may even be negative. See a MD and obtain an ultrasound & blood PG test when that occurs ...Read more

Can pregnancy be mistaken for a cyst? On 5/4 I was 4 wk preg, the 6th I started bleeding and 5/21they said I had a cyst and no baby now I have + test?

Yes: This is complicated. An early pregnancy will have a cyst called the corpus luteum cyst that maintains the early pregnancy. Therefore the cyst is usually not the pregnancy. However, you can get a pregnancy on the ovary or tube, called an ectopic pregnancy and that can be confused for a cyst. Furthermore, certain ovarian tumors can produce pregnancy hormones and be confused for a pregnancy. See ob. ...Read more

As far as cyst is concerned will it cause complications in havinga child? More over I was recently pregnant. And was diagnosed with a tubical pregnancy

As far as cyst is concerned will it cause complications in havinga child? More over I was recently pregnant. And was diagnosed with a tubical pregnancy

Hard to say: Many women have small cysts that never impair their fertility, while some have multiple cysts and do. I would worry that whatever problem led to your tubal pregnancy may have injured the other tube also. A natural pregnancy may not be possible. You may need to consult with a fertility center. If the tubes are impaired, you may need to bypass them with in vitro fertilization to get pregnant. ...Read more

The placenta takes over hormone production and the pregnancy becomes independent of the ovary and this is when we expect the cyst to shrink. Nevertheless ovarian chat should have close f/u during pregnancy. ...Read more
