so in December 2017 I had my left ovary removed because I had a 15x15cm cyst in my ovary. 8 months later I’ve been diagnosed with polycystic ovary in my remaining ovary, I can’t help but be concerned about my liklihood of fertility etc. Bearing in mind I am only 19! Can anyone shead some light into this or share any advice? Thankyou
I am not familiar with this so cannot really advise, but have you discussed all the implications with your doctor? It really needs an experts advice, probably a specialist. I hope your problems are sorted well.
The <b>infertility</b> rate with <b>polycystic ovaries</b> is very high. these women usually will have difficulty getting <b>pregnant</b> – and usually require treatment to improve chances for<b>pregnancy</b>. Some women with <b>polycystic ovary syndrome</b> will ovulate (release a mature egg) occasionally – others do not ever ovulate.
Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones. This hormone imbalance causes them to skip menstrual periods and makes it harder for them to get pregnant
I’m afraid I am not informed about your condition. The most obvious advice is to ask your doctor. But I really don’t know what to advise. It is tragic, but you may still be able to get pregnant. Only your doctor can tell you that, however.
I know it’s of little comfort, but you’re not alone: and may still be fertile. Don’t lose hope.
