What are the symptoms of ovarian cysts?

I have a question about a false positive pregnancy test. I have taken 8 tests over the past week and all of them have been positive. I also have pcos and am on clomid. My appt. With my doctor is Friday. I am just worried about ovarian cysts and false positive pregnancy tests. Is it possible that this is what is going on?

Hallow Dear,

The urine pregnancy tests detect the raised levels of a hormone hCG which is produced by a tissue called as Chorionic tissue. This belongs to the baby. If during your treatment you are not receiving any hCG preparation, the positive tests do indicate pregnancy. The incidence of false negative tests is known in earlier period; however, the incidence of false positive results, that too 8 times is highly unusual. Now that it is more than a week that your tests are showing positive results, I would recommend you to get ultrasonography done which will give you direct visual evidence of the status of your pregnancy.

I hope this should get rid of your dilemma about your pregnancy.
