Sharp pain in my left or right ovary about once a week, period has completely stopped for 2 months now, can an ovarian cyst (s) cause a + preg. Test?
It's a baby: A positive pregnancy test is a baby until proven otherwise. If unsure, one can repeat a home urine pregnancy test 7-10 days later... they are very accurate. If the second test is positive, there's a baby embryo or fetus in there. That means it's time to call one's doctor to schedule a prenatal visit. The usual ovarian cysts don't cause false positive pregnancy tests. Read more
Took Plan B 2 months ago and never got my period, found 3.5cm ovarian cyst on my right ovary. When will I get my period and when will the cyst go away?
Ovarian cyst: Most ovarian cysts of this type will resolve within two months. On occasion a cyst will produce an excess in hormones and will change your period pattern, but only for 1-2 cycles at the most. If you are definitely not pregnant you should return to normal cycling on your own. Remember, emotional stress is a very common reason for missed periods. Your doctor can evaluate this and treat as needed. Read more
Probably not: All women of reproductive age typically develop 3-5 small cysts on each over every month. One usually becomes a dominant cyst (egg or follicle) from which ovulation occurs. Oral contraceptives can reduce cyst number and size. Ask your gyn if there is a concern over pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) before considering anything. Read more

Ovarian cyst: You don't mention which side the cyst is on but I'm thinking the left from the way you word it. We do try to remove just the cyst and safe the ovary in most situations. But that isn't always possible, so there is a small chance you may loose your ovary. Talk to this concern with the surgeon ahead of time so you know what to expect. Read more
