I just found out I have several abnormally large fibroids. My gyno says my situation is abnormal coz I have one fibroid as large as a cantaloupe, 2 others larger than a grape fruit and several small ones. My stomach looks like a 7 month pregnancy. My right ovary is enlarged to the size of a female hand fist and it has some black stuff on it.
My gyno also says there is a 40% chance I will loose my entire female reproductive organs. I am only 29 yrs old and have no children. The idea of not being able to have my own biological children is sending me down an emotional treadmill.
At the very worst I would like to be left with atleast one functioning ovary so I can use a surrogate. I have tried to ask if they can induce my one ovary to produce eggs to be frozen but they said I do not fit the criteria and they cannot induce it.
Please give me suggestions on how to save my fertility. I have been considering uterine fibroid embolization but i'm scared of the fact that they have no data on fertility after the procedure.
See anther gyno, they should be able to freeze at this point. However, keep in mind the chance of you not being able to have your own biological children is only 40% which is a number usually inflated before they tell you to help you prepare for the worst.
Don't let it get you down too much... Nothing is written in stone yet.
