You have two ovaries, the one without a cyst should work fine.


It depends on what is causing the cysts to form:

A functional cyst forms from a disruption during ovulation; either a failure of luteinizing hormone (LH) to surge and allow the mature ova to be released (follicle cyst) or in the case of corpus luteum cysts - the sac doesn't dissolve after the egg is released causing the empty follicle to fill with fluid and blood.

You can have either type of cyst on one or both ovaries, both type of cyst usually heal within 2 to 3 menstrual cycles. If you are having repeated failure to surge LH you will not ovulate - but continue to form cysts, when this happens your doctor may suggest BCPs to suppress the ovary from producing cysts and to allow those present to heal before treating the hormonal disruption.

Corpus luteum cysts while having a tendency to bleed do not interfere with fertilization or implantation of a fertilized egg.

The types of cysts that form in women who have endometriosis are on the outer surface of the ovary, called Endometriomas, these are growths that are similar to the tissue that grows elsewhere in the pelvis.

In women with cysts caused by Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), the ovary doesn't make all of the hormones it needs for the eggs to fully mature. Cysts form when follicles start to grow and build up fluid or when eggs mature within the sacs but are not released.

There are other cysts that are found on ovaries, they are extremely rare and usually don't cause infertility.
