A woman with PCOS would generally not be having a tubal ligation. Contrary to a previous answer, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (Stein-Leventhal Syndrome), is a rare condition that generally causes women to not have periods and they are usually sterile and may have masculine features. Tubal ligation has no relationship to ovarian cysts. All women form ovarian cysts, that is part of the ovulation process. If the cysts are smaller than 5 cm. in diameter and resolve within one cycle in women under age 30, 99% of the cysts are benign. Some women, if ther are no contraindications, even those who have had tubal ligations will go on Birth Control pills to prevent ovarian cysts, since oral contraceptives stop women from ovulating and consequently will prevent most ovarian cysts.

The last answerer has it all wrong. They are talking about a whole different ailment. Ovarian cysts are very common in women and are usually harmless and resolve on their own. Having a tubal ligation does not prevent nor cause ovarian cysts in any way. So PCOS and ovarian cysts are two totally different problems.
