Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
Positive urine pregnancy test confirms presence of beta HCG.
This cyst may be ovarian cyst/ tubal pregnancy/ hydatidiform mole.
You should consult with obstetrician and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for repeat ultrasound imaging after 1-2 weeks and reassess the status.
Repeat Ultrasound imaging clarify the presence of pregnancy.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hello,
I appreciate your query
The cyst in the right adnexa could mean one of many things.
Number 1 - the bleeding after a positive pregnancy test could mean that it was an early spontaneous abortion, and the adnexal cyst, could be an early corpus luteum, that supports pregnancy.
Number 2 - it could be an ectopic pregnancy ( pregnancy outside the uterus - inside the tubes or ovaries
Number 3 - it could be an incidental adnexal cyst alongwith a pregnancy.
You need to attach the complete report to arrive at a conclusion.
Also , am sure a repeat scan in some days, or estimation of blood B - HCG levels will provide a clearer picture.
All the best.
