What causes pregnancy cysts?

Hi Alex,
I saw my Obstetrician yesterday and she found that I had a "pregnancy cyst". She did``nt really explain much as she wasn`t too concerned. What causes pregnancy cysts, what effect do they have on the fetus and how do they dissapear? I have had cysts and endometriosis in the past but not when pregnant.
Thanks for your time.

Answer: Hi, Thank you for your enquiry. I am not too sure what your doctor is describing. You can have fibroids in your uterus that do not usually cause problems during pregnancy or you can have ovarian cysts that also do not usually cause problems but need to be watched. Please talk to your Obstetrician and ask them to explain it to you further. Best wishes, Alex.
