    Do you possibly mean "cysts on your ovaries?" There's something called PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). A couple of classic symptoms are "strands" of cysts on the ovaries and irregular and missed periods due to absent ovulations. Some of the other common symptoms (although not present in all women with PCOS) are excess body hair, being overweight, oily and acne prone skin, loss of scalp hair. Losing some weight is often helpful in restoring ovulations and normal cycles as well as improving insulin resistance that's part of this syndrome.

    Here are some links on PCOS:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001408/
    http://www.womenshealth.gov/publications/our-publications/fact-sheet/polycystic-ovary-syndrome.cfm

    Of course, PCOS may not even be your diagnosis. I would hope that having been to a number of doctors that at least one of them would have given you a diagnosis especially since you said you tried "many medicines." What were these medications? Were they just fertility drugs? It would be helpful to know your diagnosis and then do some research on how to improve the symptoms and increase your chances for pregnancy.

    Have you tried to lose some weight through diet changes and exercise? That can help restore ovulations. There's a PCOS group here on WebMD - http://exchanges.webmd.com/polycystic-ovary-syndrome-exchange. There are also a few Trying to Conceive groups. Hope your baby dreams come true!
