Dr. John Berryman answered

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Contemporary cysts found on ultrasound in both ovaries is common, but the follicle cyst which contains an egg may have ruptured, creating a potential pregnancy which is unaffected by the presence of the other cysts described. However, the "early period" may be secondary to failure of fertilization, and ovulation this cycle may have been early, causing an "early period", and no pregnancy.
