Cyst in uterus or pregnancy?

Went to ER with severe pain in my left ovary. After a vaginal sonogram the sonogram lady tells me ovaries look good but it looks like I am pregnant. Radiologist reads sonogram and tells my doctor the same thing. Urine pregnancy test negative. Blood pregnancy test negative. So they look at soon again and then the radiologist says I am either 5 weeks pregnant or a cyst in my uterus. I had a tubal 14 years ago and an ablation 3 years ago. They told me to wait 3 more weeks and then come have another sonogram. Of course I am anxious with the odds stacked against us to be pregnant again but wanted to know if anyone could explain this AND how the soon lady ( which reads these daily) and the radiologist both say pregnant but once the radiologist found out the tubal and ablation had happened he says possible cyst. Please advise!!!

Re: Cyst in uterus or pregnancy?

Uhh...if you got a tubal AND an ablation, I very seriously doubt it's pregnancy. Did you tell these doctors you're sterile? If you were 5 weeks along, that should be long enough to yield a positive pregnancy test, and blood tests are pretty much foolproof. The odds of a pregnancy somehow getting through a tubal, an ablation AND presenting false negative blood and urine test results are astronomical. I don't even think it's possible.

The radiologists are out of their minds (and that's why they are radiologists and not gynecologists) and shame on them for scaring you. I don't know much about uterine cysts, but if it's pregnancy you're worried about, I gotta say relax. If possible, I would say visit a doctor who actually known something about female reproductive issues. The sonogram slingers can work the machines, but that doesn't mean they can identify what appears in the results. An actual GYN would be of more assistance.

Re: Cyst in uterus or pregnancy?

I've never heard of a cyst in the uterus. It could be a fibroid or a polyp but a cyst?!? Not that I'm aware of.

I would definitely go see a gyne because you can't know what's going on for real unless you see someone who knows what they are talking about. Any time you see a radiologist of any kind whether it be an X-ray or CT scan or MRI or any kind of scan, the techs who do the scan are not allowed to give you their opinion of what it might be if they see something or don't see anything. They only run the scans but then send the scans to a specialist for it to be read and diagnosed. Any tech worth their paycheck will specifically tell you they are not allowed to speculate because most hospitals will fire them if they make comments and they know it.

The point being that you can't rely on a tech to diagnose you. Go see a gyne and bring the ultrasound results with you, make sure you do!
