    Default Ovarian Cyst and False Positive?!

    Hi

    I just did a clear blue pregnancy test which said I was pregnant 2-3 weeks. I've also done several POAS (First response, etc.) I was so excited until I saw in the instructions that an ovarian cyst may cause false positives.

    I'm really worried now that it's the cyst (I had an u/s on the 22.11 that showed a complex cyst) that's causing the positive not a baby. My period is 5 days late.

    I (stupidly) asked Dr Google and he said a complex cyst (which may be the corpus luteum) may cause false positives.

    Has anyone got any encouraging stories? I'm going to see my Dr on Thursday but think I may go crazy by then!!!

    Thanks

    I have 32 cysts on my ovaries and I have used that test and it was right. I also used FR while I had them with my DS who is now 9 months old.


    Have you tested false positive before while you have had the cyst?

    I only just found out about the cyst on the 22nd November and tested positive on day of missed period Thursday 2nd Dec.

    I think I'm just going to think positive

    Stupid Dr Google

    I wouldnt worry about it. There is a certain type of ovarian tumour that can produce HCG, therefore giving a positive pregnancy test. I have seen one of these in my career

    I think it is pretty safe to say you are pregnant, congratulations!
