It depends: More than likely you have polycystic ovaries which can be common, but may cause problems over time. You might have a higher rate of infertility, irregular cycles and other symptoms related to this finding. If the cysts enlarge that can cause other issues that your gynecologist needs to follow. Get ultrasounds instead of ct scans in the future to follow these cysts decreasing radiation exposure. ...Read more

Relax.: Consult an obstetrician and gynecology-oncology specialist to monitor the size and content of these ovarian cysts. Most likely they will be benign and can be removed laparoscopically between 16-20 weeks. If malignant, the prognosis is more serious, but your pregnancy (i presumed it is desired) should still be able to reach viability (24 weeks) and even term (37-40 weeks) length. ...Read more

Often these resolve/shrink, but unfortunately some don't and may enlarge resulting the "ovarian cyst" many have them and may not have symptoms. Some people have large ones and may cause pain. Some twist on themselves and cause torsion. If you concerns, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Severe changes: With cysts, they make the ovary heavier and it is possible for the ovary to twist. If you have severe pain, nausea, vomiting, you might need emergency surgical care to prevent the ovaries from twisting too much, which can block the blood supply and kill off the ovary (torsion). Otherwise they can be followed or treated depending on the shape and size. ...Read more

Bilateral cysts: A one cm ovarian cyst is quite small and in the process of ovulation production both ovaries are stimulated and cysts sometimes forms. You are correct that ovaries generally alternate ovulation, but unless you have PCOS most cysts are benign and unilateral. ...Read more

Calla doctor!: Talk with your doctor, a good obg if you don't have one, or a rei/fertility specialist. If your cysts are dermoids they will have to be removed: the sooner this is done the better chances of preserving the ovaries. Dermoids do not ever go away on their own. ...Read more
