Hello Anonymous,

Some ovarian cysts can be associated with decreased fertility, but it depends on the type of ovarian cyst that you had.

Functional cysts, cystadenomas and dermoid cysts are not associated with infertility. Your doctor is your best resource for questions about infertility.


Talk with your gynecologist, who will know from your medical history what type of cyst you had removed.
