What are the chances of infertility for women at 42who have monthly ovarian cysts?

Higher chances at 42: Without knowing much about you as an individual other than your age & cysts, fertility decreases every year after 40 and it is very difficult to conceive at 45 or older with your own eggs for most women (always exceptions). 41-42 year olds may have a 15-25% chance of success with more high-tech fertility treatment like ivf. See a reproductive endocrinologist. Cysts may be a sign of low egg supply. ...Read more

Can ovarian cysts that appear and leave on their own cause infertility?

No. Can be a sign.: The most common ovarian cysts that "come and go" are follicular or corpus luteum cysts and these don't cause infertility, but frequent follicular cysts can be a sign of reduced ovarian reserve (lower egg numbers and quality). Some cysts that don't go away on their own, like endometriosis cysts, may indicate reduced fertility. If a cyst needs surgical removal the surgery may reduce ovarian reserve. ...Read more

Does lack of hormones to develop an ovarian cyst cause infertility?

Does lack of hormones to develop an ovarian cyst cause infertility?

If no follicle, yes: Ovarian cysts are very common but not 'normal'. I am guessing you mean lack of hormones to develop an ovarian follicle - a cyst-like structure that releases an egg (ovulates). Some women don't ovulate because of low FSH / lh hormones (may be due to stress, exercise, eating disorders, underweight), some have high FSH & low egg supply. Low hormones makes it harder to conceive. See a fertility md. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and they said its starting to leak if I get surgery what are the chances in having a child?

Likely very good: At the time of ovulation, there will always be a cyst about an inch in diameter. That cyst will rupture (and leak) to release the egg, which could be fertilized if you are sexually active and without protection. After ovulation the cyst may enlarge up to 3 or 4 inches, and still be normal. Before having surgery for an ovarian cyst, see your gynecologist, most ovarian cysts do not require surgery. ...Read more
