Hi Faith

Yes, they can recur, unfortunately.

Hi Maria

I would say the answer to your question is no, but a complicated no. Amenorrhea and ovarian cysts can both be symptoms of a problem, such as a hormonal problem. So they may go together but not really be causing each other, if that makes sense, although ovarian cysts can sometimes cause amenorrhea: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001504.htm

We have a page on ovarian cysts: http://www.empowher.com/condition/ovarian-cysts
Mayo clinic also has good information: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/ovarian-cysts/DS00129.

I hope this helps you sort things out.
