Can Ovarinan Cysts Cause Infertility?

Last Editorial Review: 1/11/2018

Ask the experts

Will I be able to get pregnant, even though my doctor told me I have ovarian cysts? Will my cysts turn into cancer?

Doctor's response

The common ovarian cyst is not associated with infertility. On the other hand, polycystic ovarian syndrome, which is a specific disorder, can be associated with infertility. For more information about this syndrome see's Polycystic Ovary Syndrome article. Ovarian cysts are not a risk factor for ovarian cancer.

Thank you for your question.
