OVARIAN CYSTS
I've had sexual intercorse two weeks after my period.I know that I might be pregnant,but I also think that I might have an cyst on one of my ovaries because of pains that I've been having in my stomach.I will deffinently go and see my gynae but what I want to know is - if I do have a cyst will I still be able to fall pregnant.If a person does not go to the doctor to get the cyst removed, can there be a chance that a woman can never have children.

The cyst will probably not affect the chances of pregnancy in the long term. Whether it needs removal or not depends on the size of the cyst and the type of cyst.
