What's the probability of infertility for women who have monthly ovarian cysts?

In brief: Expected

Monthly ovarian cysts are what we look for when evaluating women for infertility.
Ovarian follicles (cysts) need to be present for ovulation to occur & we check for a dominant follicle as good presumptive evidence of fertility. On the flip side, absent follicles or to many (polycystic ovary - pco) are more problematic and usually require medical or surgical intervention. Take care.

In brief: Depends on the cause

Many ovaries can harbour small cysts of unclincal significance.
However, persistent cysts in the presence of irregular menses may indicate a hormonal imbalance. Check with your doctor if further testes are needed.
