I am 18 in October, and I am wanting a baby. My boyfriend has said, "Just say the word," and I want to talk to him more about it. I feel I am emotionally ready for one, the only thing is - I want to have a baby now because I have ovarian cysts that come and go that threaten my ovaries. My doctor said the next time a cyst appears, I could have the ovary removed. But I want a baby before that has to happen. I have been on birth control since I was 11, and this does not help the cysts. So any advice or thoughts? Experience anyone? Please and thanks.
