Possibly: Ovarian cysts, depending on size and the rest of the hormonal context, usually won't impair fertility in an otherwise healthy, menstruating woman. Cysts on fallopian tubes may represent deeper damage, possibly indicating scar tissue, blockage or other dysfunction. But that doenst mean you can't have kids- get a basic fertility eval from your gyno or see a specialist if nec and get some answers!

Yes and no: Some benign, physiological, and stable cyst in the tubes ovarians may not interfere fertility. Polycytic ovaries, endometriotic cysts, hydrosalinges, and some other cysts may cause infertility.

Not usually: Cysts associated with fallopian tubes are generally small and located outside, so it is almost never a problem. Ovarian cysts may be an issue if it is part of pcos and cause you to have irregular or no periods.
