Can I still get pregnant with ovarian cysts ?

Can I still get pregnant with ovarian cysts ?

Yes: You could not get pregnant without ovarian cysts. Your eggs are contained in tiny ovarian cysts.

After ovulation, sometimes the cyst will seal up and continue to enlarge - up to the size of a baseball, and still this is normal. ...Read more
