can an ovarian cyst cause a missed period? i'm about a week late, with signs of pregnancy.. but not so sure, since i was just told i had a small cyst on my right ovary and wasn't sure if it was causing my period to be late.

yes a cyst can delay a period and prevent ovulation. My doctor told me that cysts release similar hormones as pregnancy...but keep in mind, I had a large cyst and I don't know if small cysts are different. If you are concerned, take an HPT and call your doctor for more info.

even a simple small functional cyst?

I doubt it....I'm pretty sure that "functional" means that your ovaries are still functioning and therefore ovulation shouldn't be affected. Your period comes something like 10-16 DPO. My only concern would be if your cyst had grown and is now interferring with your ovaries

Hi b___terflykisses. I can relate...my cyst was bigger than a tennis ball and it ruptured...The pain is horrible. I have heard some people compre the pain to labor pains! YIKES!!! Good luck and Baby dust to you!

oh wow, mine was so tiny he could hardly see it but he knew it was ontop of my right ovary. i was pretty much doubled over in pain for 30 minutes, couldn't move at all. should i go back to the doctor or not? my mom had one, and she said just to leave it alone, and plus she's a doctor. good luck to you!
