Hello and thanks for the query.

The answer to your question is "No". This condition or the fact that one has a Bartholin cyst will not generate a false positive pregnancy test. The cyst has no hormonal activity at all.

I thank you again for the query. I hope you found my answer to be helpful and informative. Should you have additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
