Will a bladder infection or cyst on the ovaries

Patient: Will a bladder infection or cyst on the ovrys make a pregnancy test come out positive?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.A pregnancy test is positive only when there is beta hCG a hormone secreted by a pregna nt woman, is detected in urine. A bladder infection or a cyst in the ovary will not alter the results or cause it positive.Hope this helped.Regards
