Hello and thank you for your query.

The answer is most likely yes but you may need some minor degree of medical intervention. As for the thicker than normal uterus - this needs to be further defined by your gynecologist. If it is a benign thickening, sometimes they may do a procedure called a dilation and curettage which basically removes some of the thickened tissue. As for the ovarian cysts, it is possible you have a variant of polycystic ovary syndrome. This can result in irregular periods and occasionally a state where there is a hormonal imbalance.

There are medications available which help to mitigate the symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome and by doing so, it can confer a higher degree of fertility. Let me fully reassure you that you have options which you can discuss with your gynecologist. I would not be discouraged at all. I hope you found my answer adequate and informative. I am available for your followups.
