In brief: Yes

Ovarian cysts in Polycystic ovarian syndrome frequently cause infertility.
However, cysts are also necessary for fertility since the egg develops in a cyst known as a follicle and another type of cyst, a corpus luteum, produces the progesterone that gets the uterine lining ready for implantation. Hope this helps.
