functional ovarian cysts

A: Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum! In all probability the cysts on the ovaries that you had were functional ovarian cysts and not the cysts of polycystic ovarian syndrome and hence they disappeared with pregnancy. Now you could be pregnant. The only way to confirm pregnancy is take a blood pregnancy test about 5-6 days before the next expected period or take a urine pregnancy test after the expected date if you do not get periods. Hope this helps. Take care!...

I am trying not to overreact with the surgery, (I really debated lump/rad vs. mast, but the mass was so small). Do I really need these organs now? I heard the shots were painful too.
