Hi guys!

I have one son, who is 17 months old, and my husband and I are thinking about trying for another baby.

When I was pregnant with my son, my obstetrician casually remarked to me, 'oh, do you know you have a cyst on one of your ovaries?' when I said no, he just said it was nothing to worry about...And I didn't at the time. However, now I am thinking of trying for another little one, his words have come back to me and I am worried.

Does anyone know if having an ovarian cyst can make conceiving more difficult? Are there any risks associated with it?

Hello my name is amanda and when I was 25 I got pregnant with my son. When I was about 14 weeks I went in to get a doctor check up and they ordered an ultrasound due to the fact I was measuring about 5 weeks further than what they caculated. I went and seen a specialist and come to find out I had a large cyst on my left ovary.. Scary...... Well my options were wait untill the baby was born, and take the chance of it rupting and injury my baby or have major surgery asap. Well I chose the surgery at 18 weeks I had surgery to remove my left ovary I was completly knocked out on anistetic, they cut me like a c-section had 19 staples took about 4 days at hospital to recover. Baby made it through the whole thing, my miricale baby. He is now 2. I would check and get that taken care of asap before you try to concieve...
