Thanks for the query.

In trans abdominal scan sometimes fetal cardiac activity may not be detected in 5 to 6 weeks.
The cyst in the ovary can be corpus luteal cyst of the pregnancy which will help in producing progesterone to maintain the pregnancy.
So you don't worry. Repeat the scan after 2 weeks possibly by that time fetal cardiac activity can be seen.
Take care.
