    Hi carlmatthew0912,

    Cysts that become infected and cause scarring on fallopian tubes or those in relation to endometriosis can be associated with infertility, but it does not sound like these apply in your situation. This article will give you some more information, but generally speaking, normally appearing ovarian cysts that go away on their own should not have an affect on your ability to get pregnant.

    How long have you and your partner been trying to conceive? It can take a healthy couple up to a year to conceive naturally. You might find the information in our Guide to Getting Pregnant helpful.

    Best wishes,
