People: People with irregular cycles and cysts most likely have an ovulation problem. You should see your ob/gyn and ask for tests to see why you are not ovulating. Sometimes it is from a medical problem like the thyroid not working right. Sometimes there is no clear reason but there is still simple medication that you can take to help you ovulate.

Fertility: Fertility rates will vary from one person to another. If you have PCOS and irregular periods then you may not be consistently ovulating. Schedule a visit with your obgyn to have ovulation testing done and to determine if fertility testing is needed.

Frequent bladder infections and occasional lower ab cramps and pain. I've had ovarian cysts before, and I have irregular periods. What's causing these?

Cannot diagnose: This is not something that can be solved without a full history and physical exam and perhaps some imaging studies. See a doctor and get this evaluated soon. Good luck and best wishes for a new year.
