Ovarian cysts and pregnancy tests

Patient: Dear doctor,I just wanted to ask, can a simple ovarian cyst cause a false negative on a home pregnancy test? I have taken over 14 pregnancy test (different brands) but all have been negative. I went in for an ultrasound and they found that i had a 6cm cyst (which is getting smaller). Do you think I still may be pregnant?
