Brief Answer:
Diagnostic laproscopy+cystectomy

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear.Thanks for your query.

According to me, normally most ovarian cysts does not usually affect a woman's ability to conceive since they are functional and subside by themselves.

Since the cyst has been persisting since the last 3 years I would do a diagnostic laproscopy which will also help me visualise the ovarian tubes(to rule out tubal abnormality if any) and plan for a cystectomy.This procedure will preserve the ovarian function(only the cyst is removed) and it remains healthy.

Hope this answers your query.

Brief Answer:
CA 125, Diagnostic laparoscopy, Early induction of ovulation

Detailed Answer:
Hi again.

Thanks for sharing the information.

Since the cyst is 4cm and is persistent it is very important to rule out underlying condition/pathology.

Have you for checked for done CA 125 antigen test?If yes please upload the report.

Thus by only doing a laparoscopy I will be able to make a pathological diagnosis followed by ovulation induction and plan for early pregnancy.Try to discuss and explain your husband about the line of management.I am sure he will agree with you.Get well soon.

Hope this answers your query.
