Cysts are a normal part of ovulation and no ovulation, no cysts
.It's just that sometimes the cyst
doesn't disappear as it should. At least that's the treatment
for a number of ladies on here . Also, regarding fertility.. you may still conceive with one ovary.. it "takes over" the job of the missing ovary.
I would agree that for me the surgery was a piece of cake, although I had the laparoscopy, which is easier than the laparotomy.
