Question Can I still get pregnant if I have ovarian cysts?

[FONT=Comic Sans MS]I have had these golf-ball-sized cysts on my ovaries for the past 4 years. I have been wondering lately if I can still get pregnant if I have these cysts. I'm not taking birth control or anything else to shrink them down lately because I am without health insurance right now. If anyone knows the answer to my long-pondered question, please reply.

Re: Can I still get pregnant if I have ovarian cysts?

Annie-
I have had cysts all my life. Three months before I got pregnant I had an ultrasound and I had 2 cysts on my left ovary and 3 on my right. They were on the smaller side but they still existed. I never went on any medication but I did take the herb Vitex. a Month and half later I was pregnant and all my cysts were gone. I beleive you can get pregnant with cysts. In fact I know you can because my Aunt did. However, her cysts ruptured causing a miscarriage. I guess that's not good for our situation. Is this an old cyst or a new one? You probably would want to shrink it if you could before getting pregnant. Good luck.
