No. Ov. cyst don't: No. Your large ovarian cyst will not "cause ovulation without periods" nor will it cause ovulation or cause your periods. Ovulation usually is followed by menstruation. The absence of menstrual periods can be caused by hormonal or ovulation disturbances. Your large ovarian cyst will require a careful evaluation and surgical exploration preferably by a gyn oncologic surgeon.

Sort of: When you ovulate, an egg can be released from two separate cysts. This often leads to twins! you do not release two eggs from one cyst.
