Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Not so much a confession.....help?!

Posted by   + Show Post
I recently found out that I have a 2.3 inch (6 cm) cyst on my right ovary and that if I get pregnant it can cause a miscarriage and if it bursts it could make the chances of concieving much harder. My SO wants one more child as do I and he wants to ttc right now for fear of not being able to concieve in the future. However I don't ever want to experience a miscarriage I don't think I could handle the loss. I also want to go back to school and start my career before having anymore children. Anyway I believe it would be selfish to try knowing what I do but at the same time I don't want to miss the chance of having one more child. What do you ladies think?

I had tons of cysts and tumors on ovaries and uterus, I had laperoscopic surgery and had a baby a year later. Also would like to add that I have PCOS and endometriosis so that's a double infertility and still managed to have a miracle :) good luck

Y r u ttc with no med insurance?


Quoting mamadismay:

I don't have medical insurance to do so.



Quoting -JC-:

Get the cyst removed first. its a simple surgery. Also i think if your dh knew about the risks he wouldn't want to try right now.

This is very true! I have PCOS which pretty much means lots of cysts, & I just finished a year of birth control. Last appointment dr told me to stop the bc because everything loomed good! My birth control at Walmart was $9 a month! Very affordable.

Quoting jadedcynic:

You might want to wait a year or so to conceive. The best ovarian cyst shrinkers are actually birth control pills like ortho tri-cyclin or any other hormone pill. If you take those for about a year, the cyst will likely shrink, then you can  begin trying to conceive again.

I will talk to my doc about getting on the pill and hopefully that helps. Thank you for your help.

They are right, it could be pcos, but it isnt always that that causes it.

That's amazing! For an ultrasound at my hospital, without insurance, it's over $800! & that's not even for a transvaginal ultrasound!

Quoting wkukid:

Everyone has a different concept of what expensive is, but at my obgyn it's 125 bucks for a ultrasound, without insurance. It isn't really expensive to us. We pay for a 2nd one out of pocket each cycle because it makes me feel better to have a before ovulation and after ovulation ultrasound done so I know I ovulated and how many follicles are there. Only the before ultrasound is covered for us.

I am not ttc. I said my SO wants to to fear of not being able to have more. I however want to go back to school and start my career before anymore children. We were just debating in and I wanted some more input from you ladies so I had a better argument to get him to listen to me.

Mine are done within the obgyn office and are transvaginal. They couldn't find my ovary one time and included a outside ultrasound for free because they couldn't find it.
