Ovulation difficulty: This condition is becks a woman doesn't predictably ovulate. So getting pregnant may be more difficult. Sometimes fertility drugs are needed to resolve this problem during pregnancy some of these women are more likely to get gestational diabetes. All of this can be managed by good care before conception and during the pregnancy. Weight loss, good nutrition, and exercise can help too.

Depends on many fact: Factors like the size, is it a simple cyst or not , is there any pain or not , if it is a simple fluid filled benign looking cyst that is not too large or causing too much pain then often times birth control pills can shrink the cyst and prevent future cysts from forming, if it is not simple then the diagnosis and txment options are totatlly differnet so the gyn can discuss all of this with you.

Menstruation: Cysts are a normal part of the menstrual cycle. The ovary forms a "corpus luteum cyst" which ruptures near the time of menstruation if no fertilization occurs. It is thought that this may be one cause of benign ovarian cysts that keep growing.

You need to ask the : Doc who did your surg as that doc knows how everything went and u didnt say what type of surg you had, laparoscopy, robot open? And did you have any problems after like bleeding or infection, etc. Or none, so call you surgeon and ask him or her, and don't go sue the doc unless there was really something that happened or was done that was below the standard of care so get a 2nd opinion if neces.
