Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts trying to conceive

ovarian-cysts

thanks! I had a lot of problems with ovarian cysts and PCOS so I really needed to know how that would effect my chances too. I appreciate you sharing?
please help,, I'm trying to think if taking birth control pill for a few months and stop will help me conceive..
But today it's not that simple. There are many people trying to conceive and can not. They resort to others ways then the normal way, like invetro. not saying that you would have to turn that way. Basically you are young and you need to go to the doctor along with your partner to see if you and your partner are able to have kids the way god intended. Remember sometimes it can be the man that's not able to produce.
If your just trying on your own naturally I think it will be difficult to conceive the months you have the cysts but like mentioned in previous post once your onto a cycle without cysts it will be easier to conceive. Good luck to you!
I also recently was diagnosed through sonogram with 2 (simple) ovarian cysts. Recently I went back on 10/05 and had a follow up sonogram. The doctor said my cysts had gone down a lot and were very small and looked fine, but that my unterine lining was REALLY thick. She wanted to know if I was trying to get pregnant, she is not the doctor I normally see so she was not sure. I told her I was so she thought that could be why my lining was so thick.
That I don't know! Hasn't your doctor spoken to you about them? How do you know they haven't gone away?
I'm pregnant with my first and 6 weeks along. Due to an irregular cycle my doctor sent me along for a dating scan yesterday. During the scan they found two cysts on my right ovary measuring around 5cm... she didnt seem too worried but my doctor has since called to ask me to come and see her regarding the scans.. I do get a bit of occasional pain on my right hand side from time to time but nothing too serious.
Its been a crazy road but we are in love and weren't trying to conceive but we would truly consider this a blessing.
I have been trying to conceive for 2 mths. Started birth control in December and stopped at the end of January Last month I tried preseed and had the weirdest period ever and thought for sure I was pregnant. Unfortunately I am still getting that BFN. I am actually quite disappointed and wondering if I will ever have any kids. I am also overweight and I had a cone biopsy back in September 05, not sure if this has anything to do with it but still not pregnant yet.
am i less likely to get pregnant because i have cysts??? not that i am trying or planning right now to have any but i was wondering if i am less ceptible to become pregannt because of them ....
I wouldn't try the IVF so soon, even though you're 36 that's pretty young for trying to conceive. You're probably right with attempting IUI first and see how you respond to ovarian stimulating drugs. They can test you also for your ovarian reserve. If ovarian reserve isn't great than maybe the IVF...ask about clomid challenge test and/or anti-mullerian (sp?) hormone (this one's better) to test your ovarian reserve. Godd luck to you. I don't think IVF is quite that urgent at 36.
My doctor said that I developed some small ovarian cysts because I breastfed, and consequently didn't ovulate, for so long. This was four months ago, oh yeah we're also trying to conceive again, I am still having symptoms (pain during sex) though I'm pretty sure I had two of them burst, and still not pregnant. Has anyone else had this problem of developing ovarian cysts and have trouble conceiving after breastfeeding?
i often experience pain on either side (usually worse on right side) for about 3 days around ovulation time. As I have been trying to conceive for two years I am never sure which day i would actually be releasing an egg. Why does the pain, which is often quite severe, last for this length of time? I assumed that I would only get pain when the egg was actually released. Does anyone have any advice?
my husband and I have been trying to conceive since january, my obgyn started me on clomid 50mg back in may, my blood work showed a slightly higher number for my ovulation and put me back on clomid @ 100mg ,after blood work my ovulation number had gone down, so he put me back on clomid for 150mg , blood work showed my ovulation had gone up to 17. something.
(even though it's not good to happy to have ovarian cysts, I guess its good to know that at least you ARE ovulating!) "Simple or "functional" cysts occur as a result of ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). Generally, if you don't ovulate, you won't form cysts. Most every menstruating woman develops an ovarian cyst every cycle. Sometimes the ovary does not ovulate and the cyst persists. It continues to enlarge and can become as big as a baseball.
I had one surgery to remove a large cyst and was told there would be scar tissue which may affect fertility and I was able to conceive naturally. Good luck to you.
Recurring cysts The cysts may be related to the previous cysts, but you could just be unlucky and got 3 new ones. It is possible for cysts to go away or shrink in time, so let us hope for that. Ask your doctor/surgeon if the cysts were drained or removed, drained cysts are much more likely to just fill up again. It is so hard to say anything specific without knowing more about your case - and without being a specialist. Ask as much as you need to if you dont understand their explanations.
Hi All, I'm new to the forum, (found it during a search for "ovarian cysts" on the internet) I just joined today. I was so glad to have found this forum as I have some questions. Here's the background info first: I was taken to the ER on this past Tuesday with severe abdominal & back pain (on the same side). After a urine test & trans vaginal sonogram was done, it was determined that I had "multiple" (ER docs words) cysts.
I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts in 2008 to which I had a laparoscopy to remove them and was able to get pregnant right away. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and prescribed medication. I just found out I have a complex ovarian cyst and doc wants me to do an MRI to make sure there is nothing else there. I have been trying to conceive these last few months.
Hi! There is no harm in waiting presuming that the cyst has not increased in size since the last check up. It is VERY common for young women to have cysts of this type, and very RARE for them to be "serious", so I often advise them to wait up to 3-4 months to have surgery. ESPECIALLY if you don't have children yet, because surgery can lead to the formation of scar tissue which can reduce fertility.
I had ovarian cysts in my late 20's and while I was trying to conceive. My first surgery the doctor was able to remove the cysts withouth damaging my ovaries. The cysts came back on both ovaries. Had another surgery and had my entire right ovary removed. Amazingly, I became pregnant 6 months after surgery with just one ovary without trying or doing anything special. It had been 8 years of infertility. I then got preganant again while breast feeding and had another child 16 months apart...
When I had my cyst removed, I was told it would not affect my fertility, so it shouldn't. Mine was in my right ovary and they were able to keep my ovary intact; however, they told me that even if they had had to remove it, my fertility would still be the same.
Hi Shelly, Thank you for your post. I failed to mention that I'm not trying to conceive. I have to 2 children. I was on the pill for 15 years (from 18 years old until I conceived my first child), which I believe prevented the growth of endometriosis. I got pregnant right after getting off the pill. I think because the endometriosis didn't have time to take over is the reason I got pregnant so easily each time (my pregnancies were back to back essentially).
THEY SAY NOTHING CAN BE DONE FOR THE CONSTANT NEVER ENDING PAIN EXCEPT TAKING PAIN MEDS. I AM CURRENTLY TRYING TO CONCEIVE WITH HOPES THAT I WILL BE SYMPTOM FREE FOR AT LEAST A SHORT WHILE. MY OB TOLD ME IF I HAVE A SECOND CHILD HE WOULD DO A HYSTORCTOMY? I DON'T REALLY WANT TO TAKE HORMONES FOR EVER BUT I DON'T WANT TO HURT FOREVER EITHER! PLEASE SHED SOME LIGHT ON MY CONDITION! PLEASE ANYONE!
We didn't have problems with our 1st boy - one time and it worked so I just thought it would be just as easy. Does anybody have any reassuring advice on cysts? Should I continue trying to conceive before my next ultrasound or should we wait? Will I have problems in the future conceiving because of this. Will the cyst stop me from ovulating and having my period?
I don't know about cysts & pregnancy but can say 5 months when you are 25 is not a long time. I think most Ob's will make you try for 1yr prior to sending you to a fertility Dr. Hang in there & have fun while keep trying....it will happen.
