Fertility ?'s: Dermoid cysts are benign and do not influence fertility. If your surgeon did not evaluate if your tubes were open at the laparotomy, ask about a hysterosalpingogram (HSG), a fluroscopic procedure instilling sterile liquid into the tubes which can also clear the tubes, allowing repair if necessary. Blocked tubes from infection is the most common reason statistically for infertility.
