Cyst in pregnancy


What are the risks of having a cyst when you are pregnant. Can it harm the baby?

Thank you,

Dear Lori,

It depends on the type of cyst. The most common ovarian cyst in early pregnancy is a corpus luteum cyst. This cyst forms on the ovary at the site where the egg was released. The majority of corpus luteum cysts will go away by themselves. Occasionally a cyst will cause pain. Rarely a cyst will rupture and cause bleeding and severe pain. The cyst itself cannot harm the baby.
