@AngieBelle:  My only thought is that you’re almost to your anniversary..kinda. I wish I had more insight, but I just wanted to say hugs, and try not to worry (coming from the queen of worrying about things I can’t control!) because it’s not doing you any good. I’ve met a lot of women who has conceived with only one ovary. It’s possible! Maybe discuss your concerns with your Darling Husband and just ask if he’s thought about it. Don’t press the issue, but just see where his head’s at. Hugs!

I second the chat with your Darling Husband. I think its great to wait until your 1st anniversary to discuss TTC, but given your anxiety about it  and your medical issues, it might be something to talk about. That being said, if your doctors think you’ll be okay to conceive, I wouldn’t worry too much. I don’t know anything about the egg-freezing process, but that might be something to look at if your cycles get more irregular or your dermoid grows any more.

Best of luck!

I also think that it doesn’t hurt to start discussing with your Darling Husband. What’s 5 months when you’re only talking? You can decide then if you want to start TTC earlier or later based on your concerns!

Have you scheduled a prenatal appointment with your doctor? If not I would make an appointment and sometimes they can run tests and take a once over look at everything as well as do genetic testing. This was you will be clear from your doctor and know if there is anything you can do to help the process. Also since you are already in your 30’s then you can start getting help after only 6 months.

I have only one ovary as well as endometriosis and had to have the Leep a few years prior and they removed a large portion of my cervic. I was scared that I wans’t going to ever be able to have a baby and my doctor thought I would need fertility treatments. Well I got pregnant on my own and am expecting a little girl in October. So if your doctor isn’t too concerned, try to have a little faith, and then you always have your backup plan if you need more help.

I am so sorry you are going through this. I agree, first step is to talk to your Darling Husband. I’m sure based upon your concerns the best thing would to start talking with your doctor now. Express your concerns and talk with the dr about the freezing of the eggs. I don’t mean to sound negative or try to upset you in any way with what I’m about to say, but having had cysts on ovaries before, one thing I do know is they can rupture at any time. And if they rupture, depending on the size and other factors, etc, you may loose your ovary. I think right now is the time to start talking to your doctor, of course after discussing with Darling Husband. Good Luck.
