Diagnosis of ovarian cysts
In addition to the analysis of the patient's medical history, procedures to diagnose ovarian cysts include:
A pelvic examination that may reveal an enlarged ovary or the presence of a cyst.
A transvaginal ultrasound. This test is simple and painless and can determine the size, shape and location of the cyst in 100% of cases.

Can I have a baby if I have ovarian cysts?

The answer is yes. One of the alternatives to have a baby in case you have not been able to have one is In Vitro Fertilization. In this procedure we stimulate your ovaries in order to obtain several eggs through a process of egg retrieval.
It is important to remember that medications are administered to obtain the eggs and must be monitored by a reproductive specialist.
