Corpus luteum: It is common to have a "corpus luteum cyst" -- which is not a true cyst, but rather the place where the egg came from, and also the place that helps maintain the pregnancy until the placenta is formed. Even if they see cysts on both ovaries, the next step is to wait for a few weeks and recheck the ovaries, unless they are so large that they are causing pain or mass symptoms. Typically benign.
