What happened to my baby??
I'm trying to have a baby, but two weeks after my boyfriend and i had sex i started my periods but apparently this happens to some girls. Then i went to the gynae and he said i have ovarian cysts, and i did a home pregnancy test and it came out negative. I want to know if the cysts have anything to do with my not falling pregnant or is it something else. I'd talk to my gynae about this, but he's being so difficult and judgemental cause i'm 20.

It can take up to a year with regular intercourse to fall pregnant. If your periods are regular, you should just persist. If you have PCOS, this is different. Check with youtr gynaecologist exactly what the cysts are.
