Do nabothian cysts along the inner lining of the uterus affect pregnancy ?

I had an ultrasound done at my OB/GYN s office. It showed i had a small cysts on my right ovary and also showed multiple nabothian cysts along the inner lining of my uterus. My doctor said that this was very abnormal as nabothian cysts are normally found on my cervix . She also said this shouldn t affect me getting this true??

Nabothian cysts are the mucus retention cysts of the cervix.They are most often caused when stratified squamous epithelium of the ectocervix (toward the vagina) grows over the simple columnar epithelium of the endocervix (toward the uterus).It is true that multiple nabothian cysts along the inner lining of uterus are quite uncommon but because of the harmless nature of these cysts which disappear on their own, it is unlikely that they are going to hamper conception in any way.
Hope this helps. Take care.
