Is it safe to get pregnant, if I have an ovarian cyst?

My husband and I are ready to start a family. My doctor has told me that I have an ovarian cyst, but said not to be concerned. What do you think?

Simple ovarian cysts are a physiologically normal development of the ovary each month. If a cyst gets too large, it can sometimes casuse pain.

As long as your doctor has told you the cyst is a normal, simple cyst, it is find to try and conceive.
