I would suggest that you have a full work-up at this stage - check for ovulation, check that your tubes are open and that you partner's sperm count is normal.

Best wishes

I also had a cyst about 8 months ago, it could not be treated with medication, we had to surgically remove it with a laparoptomy (the one that looks like a c-section cut)

I must admit it was sore and I was off work for 3 weeks, but in the end it was worth it, It took a while for my body to heal, but I'm glad to say that I'm pregnant (6,5 weeks)

They could save my ovary, so both are still working fine.

Rather have it treated that possibly losing one of your ovaries

Best of luck
