unfortunately the situation with my cysts is a little bit complicated nixxie the one on the right is just a normal little cyst and they said it should be alright but the one on the left is a large dermoid cyst. Its a cell in the ovary that should of become an egg but because their stem cells they can turn into other cells and the cysts can contain things like hair and teeth. Unfortunately they also contain a fluid that is poisonous if the cyst bursts and they can also twist damaging the ovary and fallopian tube. Very rarely they can also be cancerous

Choccers a friend of my eldest DD recently had one of these removed , she had a scan because of pain and as soon as they saw it she went in and they took it out , did they tell you why they're not just removing yours ? Good luck for your next appointment, it horrible when your OH can't get time off to go with you isn't it some bosses are so unsympathetic FX x

They said that pregnancy hormones can make these cysts grow quite quickly so they were leaving it in the hope that after the m/c and with the hormones going it would shrink itself a bit first because as it stood it was too big to come out with key hole surgery. They did warn me that if I had really bad pains to get straight to a&e, nearly went there on monday night because I was in agony but it stopped thank god. Ive always had pains mostly on that side mind you that I always thought was af or ovulation or something but now im thinking it was maybe the cyst all along ???

Babyhopefull the only thing I can really suggest is to chart your cycle so you know when your most fertile, you could do this using opks or theres some websites that will predict it for you. Its also recommended to have sex every 2-3 days throughout your cycle so theres always fresh sperm hanging around. If you ask in the trying to conceive section the girls in there should be able to help more. Good luck and I hope you get your BFP soon xx

I'm waiting to start ttc again but I've got a very long wait. I'm in the process of qualifying to be a solicitor and was trying desperately to get pregnant for two years because I knew I would have to stop for 18 months. I thought I'd done it in September 2009 but it was an ectopic.
I can't start trying again until Jan 2012 so I've got ages. It's so frustrating and am literally wishing my time away.

hi morgan so sorry about your ectopic and your wait to ttc
ive seen your other post in the ttc section and i totally understand how your feeling. i wanted to start ttc about summer 2007 but had to put it off because my oh's finances were a mess so it was the summer of 2009 before we started and then two months into ttc my gran and fil got sick so we put it on hold again. We started back up in july 2010, i got my BFP in nov but then I lost in and now ive got this problem with the cysts so its on hold again
Why is it that everyone seems to get pregnant when you can't its so not fair ??

i am sorry to here about ur loss and your problem , when i was pregnant with my son i had a cyst on my ovarie that was corseing me alot of pain. I had it checked out and at the time my cyst was 8cm large and my baby was only 6.5cm, as my pregnancy posisted over the next 2weeks my cyst reached 9cm and burst. shortly after haveing my son i feel pregnant again and the same thing happend, but i also misscarried my baby at 5 weeks, Now last november i had another cyst on my ovaries and alot of pain but i was not pregnant this time, my cyst reached 11cm and was also to full of fluid that could of been dangerous and halmfull to myself and my productive organs so the hospital removed it. it is not a nice thing to have to go threw at all and i feel ur grievnse and pain. My son is now 1 year and 7 months and we are going to try for another baby
i hope that the hospital or ur doctors so something for you soon and that u can carry on trying to concieve.

Babyhopefull when i was trying to concieve with my son i used to take this folic acid supliment called ferrograde, you can pick it up in boots or a pharmacy its about 5pounds for a months worth and you take 1 everyday before you fall pregnant it has natural things in it that help you to concieve and there is a same sort of supliment that u can get fro ur partner to take that will increase ur chance's and increaase his sperm too. i took it for 3 months and then found out i was 7 weeks pregnant with my baby, u can take it right up until u r 12 weeks pregnant as it is full of all the vitamins and nutriton that baby will need. i hope this helps you like it did me (and also i have seen on ebay that u can get 3 months worth for 8pound soo it works out abit cheaper) [/i]

Post subject: Wanting to stop the contraceptive pill
Hi i'm Natasha,
I'm almost 21 and i've been taking the contraceptive pill since i was about 14 for medical reasons. I was told my right overy is polycystic which caused me problems with ovulation although I was recently told my left ovary is normal. I would now like to stop taking the contraceptive pill and try to conceive however I am a little worried that I will have problems getting pregnant or ovulating naturally. Is there anyone here in the same situation?. Any advice would be much appreciated

Hi Natasha ive just been told that I might lose my left ovary but the doctor said as long as the other ovary is fine then only having one working ovary shouldnt effect fertility too much. If your concerned I would go see your gp as they might be able to do blood tests for you to check your ovulating ok. If you post in the fertility issues section the girls in there might be able to help more. Good luck getting your BFP sending lots of baby dust xx
