Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts ectopic pregnancy

ovarian-cysts

With an ectopic pregnancy you would miss your period and get one-sided pain. In many cases, an ectopic pregnancy WILL show up on a pregnancy test.
I think that you may have experienced the same scare I had, (mine ended up being ovarian cysts) but be cognisant all the same. I hope that your doctor is continuing follow-up with repeat ultrasounds each week to ensure no ectopic. Let us all know!
Usually severe pain is a sign but it doesn't always mean an eptopic pg. Ovarian cysts are quite common during pg. I wish I could be moe help. Good luck and best wishes to you and your baby!
I have a history of ovarian cysts and I have had a tubal pregnancy. I think the cyst pain is worse If ur not bleeding, I wouldn't.worry too much. I've had cysts that brought me to my knees. Good luck sweety.
I had an emergency scan around 6 weeks into this pregnancy due to pain on my right side. My GP feared an ectopic pregnancy. To my relief baby was fine. However, an 8cm side was found on my right ovary with a daughter cyst inside. The staff at the early pregnancy unit didn’t seem concerned at first. They said cysts are normally just pushed out of the way by the growing baby. I was referred to a consultant 4 weeks after. The laidback attitude changed when I saw the consultant.
She went for her ultrasound about 2 weeks ago prior to her MP dates and the results show a 5cm object which could be an ovarian pregnancy or an ovarian cyst. The family doctor sent her for blood work (pregnancy test) and we are awaiting results. She is experiencing a lot of lower abdominal and pelvic pain and discomfort especially on her left ovary and feels so fatigued. My question is what's the best procedure to follow if it turns out to be either an ovarian cyst or an ectopic pregnancy ?

I think that's possible. Ovarian cysts are pretty common in pregnancy, and they can cause bleeding. If AF arrived on 8/25, then you wouldn't be very far along at all. I hope it turns out to be good news for you. Good luck.
I went to the er cuz i was having pain and i though it was an ectopic but it was just cysts !! Have u had an ultra to make sure baby is in the righ place or if u have the cysts ? The doc in the er said they should clear as pregnancy go along .. But i still feel pain sometimes in my ovaries !!
I have a friend who is very slim and her she has struggled with multiple ovarian cysts. You can see them on her like you are describing. So, my bet is that it is a cyst. Most cysts turn out to be benign and go away on their own over time. But, the ultrasound is the best next step to see what is happening. I don't think you would see an ectopic prenancy like that. Your fallopian tube would have ruptured with an ectopic before you would be able to see it visibly.
The last one I had was so severe that I had a burning sensation in my stomach that slowly spread all day then I started having terrible stabbing pains. I was afraid that it was my appendix or I had an ectopic pregnancy. It was so horrible that I was wailing with tears which I had never done from pain. They cause a lot of symptoms. You may want to see your Doctor if you just finished with your period and you are still having the pains. Best of luck!!
They said they could not rule out an ectopic pregnancy. Could this be a cyst or should I be conserned that this is an ectopic pregnancy? I am so worried. I just had my hcg levels drawn again to see if they are going up. Is it too soon to see something on the u/s? Are my hcg levels ok for 4 weeks pregnant?and is this dull ache I have in my lower right abdomin cause of an ovarian cyst or could it be ectopic? I'm so worried.
I have had all 3 the hernia which I'm having surgery for Dec 6th, the ovarian cysts, and an ectopic pregnancy-both of which I had surgery for years ago. The ovarian cyst would not be protruding to the outside there has to be some sort of weakness in the lining, or the area for that to happen generally seen with a hernia, and your puking episodes could have caused enough straining to cause it.
In a woman still in her reproductive years (as I was) a damaged fallopian tube might result in ectopic pregnancy.
Few common causes of lower abdominal pain are PIDs, ovarian cysts, fibroids, STIs, RTIs etc. Scanty menses can be seen at extremes of reproductive life like just after puberty or before menopause. Stress and anxiety suppress the activity of the centers in the brain that stimulate the ovaries resulting in low production of hormones and hypomenorrhea.Tubal adhesions ,PCOD,uterine hyoplasia,excessive exercise and crash dieting all can cause scanty menstrual periods .You need to seek medical help.
As far as the pain goes, it doesn't necessarily mean it's an ectopic pregnancy. When I first found out I was preggo with my son (4 months old now) I had the same scare. Pinching, stabbing pains on my side. It turns out your ovaries have cysts every month that your body absorbs due to the egg follicles. When pregnancy occurs one of these cysts usually stay present and start producing hormones to help support the pregnancy until the placenta is formed.
Ok, so after that incredibly long story....I have heard that people with ovarian cysts sometimes test positive on pregnancy tests. (although I tested on Dec.22nd and it was negative). Anyway, was it a cyst or a baby? Why no discharge, and where does it go? Would Methotrexate make the cyst go away and make me better? I just have so many questions. I hope this helps somebody somewhere.
I'm really hoping to get some answers to these questions. I'm 23, married six months and tried the pill for one month after which I decided it wasn't for me. After going off, I have had three instances of ovarian cyst ruptures. My cycles have stayed regular though after they legthened back to noral 29-30 days. That I know of, I have not yet been pregnant..
I'm 7 weeks pregnant and I found out I had ovarian cysts. I was just wondering if any ladies have had this same problem during pregnancy and if so did it cause any complications or did you have a healthy pregnancy throughout?
The last test they did was an abdominal CT. The only thing that came up on this was bilateral ovarian cysts. L- 4.5cm and 2cm, R-2cm. They think I have ulcers and prescribed prilosec and a referral to gastro. I had my ER follow up with a PA in my clinic. I asked her about the cysts and if they could be related to the irregular and painful menses, and she mentioned the 2cm one on the right side, and said "probably not.... that's very small.
Hi, I have asked a few question previously about ovarian cysts and an elevated ca 125. In Aug. 07 my doctor was sure that I had an ectopic pregnancy, but when performing a laparoscopy found that it was a rather large ovarian cyst. The cyst was drained and the fluid was sent to pathology. The results of the pathology reaport was non-malignant. Then in Sept. 07 a 2.8 complex cyst was noted on an transvaginal ultrasound.
can ovarian cysts cause positive pregnancy tests and bleeding?Please I really need an answer.
If u read the small print on a pregnancy test it says that ovarian cysts can give a false positive..sorry if I scared you..
In April I had an ectopic pregnancy and then in the end of May I began having pain so my OB did an ultrasound to make sure I did not have another ectopic. Anyways, it was a cyst. It started out at almost 4 cm but has decreased in size after being on birth control. 6 weeks ago the ultrasound showed that it was down to .4 cm but I had a new cyst on my left ovary that was mostly simple with a single septation.
I read the infromation in the box and it said that ectopic or ovarian cysts can give a misleading result. Does that mean they could cause a false positive or a false negative? Do ovarian cysts produce HCG? I thought they only produced progesterone? I am confused. I really hope my level doubles tomorrow..it is so hard to wait. By the way, I forgot to mention that I know that I have three cysts on each ovary which is why I am concerned with a false positive.
There is an easy way to rule out ectopic pregnancy--if a pregnancy test is negative it is not an ectopic pregnancy! Ovarian cysts certainly can behave in a fashion similar to what you describe--if you do have another cyst, you may want to discuss wiht your doctor taking some medication to suppress cysts--birth control pills work well. If it is recurrent endometriosis, the same would apply.
My guess from the timing is that you might have pain from ovulating now on that side. I used to get ovarian cysts and the pain would be so great I would have to pace the floor. And then they would drain (naturally) and all would be fine. One of my doctors explained that you can get bruising on your ovary and a cyst can form if you ovulate after being bruised. He said the bruising can come from sex, but it wouldn't surprise me if it could also come from having had surgery.
