Hi to you all!
My name is Diana. I am 33 years old, recently engaged. My fiancée and I want to have a baby. We are trying TTC for the last year and a half. Since we started, nothing. Four months ago I found out that I have a cyst in my right ovary. My doctor prescribed me to take contraceptive pills to get rid of the cyst. I hope it will help. Oh, I forgot to mention, 2 years ago I had my thyroid removed. It was not benign, so the doctors recommended removing it. When the operation was done, I got the information that conceiving a baby could be a little more difficult now. I am on eutirox pills for the rest of my life now, for the hormone regulation. I want to ask anyone here, if someone went through the same or similar situation? Is it really hard to conceive the baby? Thanks to all for taking the time to read my post!!

It is so nice to meet you Diana. I am also new in this forum but I think I can offer some solutions. First of all, I am sorry for what you have been going through. Having your thyroid glands removed. Also for the cyst. I think the cyst did lead to the fallopian tube blockage. I am not a professional in this but I once had a fallopian tube blockage. For me, I had a surgery. But I think ways to solve these are different. Now that you are on pills instead. It is my gesture that your will take kind of long to be solved. Anyway, as far as at the end of the day you get a solution. About the thyroid, sure, it does affect fertility. But since yours was removed, I don’t think if it posses the same threat. Mostly infertility will be caused by malfunctioning of the thyroid. But currently you don’t have one. This means that you are safe. However, we cannot conclude for it may also cause some different kind of problems too. However, I am wishing you the best in your search for a baby.November 12, 2017 at 7:49 am #552cathrinParticipant
Hello Diana am sorry to hear that you in such a situation. I have also noted that you such a daring person such that you ready to take any risk that will go beyond to protect the unborn one.
Do not worry, many people are suffering from the same problem. Please consult with the specialist before taking the medicines or tests. One of my friends tell me about surrogacyinfo (Happy Family) and also tell they solve all the problems related baby.
So, do not get frustrated. Try this, hope this will help you!
Happy to help 🙂November 13, 2017 at 6:50 pm #588MilanParticipant
Let me start with some questions. After your thyroids were removed then what next? Like what were you controlling your iodine with. You should note that the thyroid is so important. It affects your iodine balance. Many people take is to be minor. But as you now know it even affects your productivity. Anyway, it seems you have been managing well. Since your doctors also now about it too. Let me also tell you sorry for everything you are going through. It also means you really have to manage being on pills for the rest of your life. Just be optimistic that things will change. Keep a positive mind for the best. And for the cyst, I hope the contraceptive pills will help too. But just know there are various ways to be pregnant so you need not to worry. Be a strong woman the way you are already. We are here for you. If you feel you need any support or care.November 19, 2017 at 5:22 pm #636jenniflowerParticipant
Hello to you all.
Jennifer here, a brand new user. How are you all doing? I hope that everyone is having a great day. I would love to get to know you all. This place seems very interesting and I am happy to be part of it. This is my story and a little details about me. Hope you all find this interesting.
My name is Jennifer Wilson. I am from England and I am happy to meet you all. I am married and I am a mother of a beautiful son. Currently I am in doubt whether to start surrogacy for another child. As you could guess I suffer from secondary infertility. Lately I have been thinking about this very hard… I would be honored to know what you all think. God bless you all and thanks for reading.November 21, 2017 at 7:17 pm #681omegaParticipant
I’m really sorry to hear that, Diana! I think Noreen is right here. Cyst normally leads to the fallopian tube blockage. Did your doctor mention to you anything of that sort? Also, I don’t think the thyroid is an issue here. It was removed and was benign at that time. No harm caused then I assume. Anyway, be sure to check with your doctor to know what is the long-term effect of those pills that you are taking. Wishing you good luck!November 23, 2017 at 4:47 am #719SandyParticipant
Hello, everyone. I am Sandy from Wisconsin, WI. I am 31, and married. I married my DH back in 2014. We have been TTC since we got married. I have found the TTC process time-consuming and nerve-wracking. So, I decided to join a forum or an online community where I could give vent to my feelings & problems. I was on pills before I got married, which resulted in me having irregular ovulations. I had no idea that pills would be this disastrous. I have been on Clomid for a year to correct the regularity of ovulations. I really do hope it will helps. Thank God, my DH is supportive enough. I can’t imagine how I would go through this without him. T
I have enjoyed reading everyone’s posts so far. Sending everyone baby dust. By the way, thanks for taking your time to read my post. I can’t wait to read other threads on this forum. Good day, everyone!December 20, 2017 at 5:58 pm #851TifannyParticipant
I am so grateful for this platform. It has really helped me a lot. It has given people the chance to express themselves. The problems that we face in our daily lives. Others are not okay telling other people of what they are going through. So they prefer opening up to their claims here. Where we do not know each other. Someone will feel that they cannot be judge. You express yourself freely with no one judging you. I have not been to other forums. As I feel like I am at home already here. How I do hope that others also find the same comfort that I have had here. Keep on doing the same. I have shared my story an got different opinions. Or sharing your story to people who have been through the same road is different. Others could have judged me and said all sorts of things. But here I got the support that I wanted.,January 14, 2018 at 4:24 pm #960NaomipoaParticipant
I am glad to be part of this forum.It gives us an opportunity to share what we are going through. We do not have to stay stressed with no one to share our problems with. Diana, i am so sorry for what you are going through. The combination of having your thyroids being removed and cyst in the ovaries is definitely lowering your chances of conceiving. I am glad you went to see a doctor. i hope that the medication will work. In most cases, patients with cyst undergo a surgery to remove it. I hope and pray that you will be able to conceive once you the cyst is no more. However, if things don’t go as planned, you can try surrogacy. No one should stay without a baby with all the new technology. I wish you all the best as you explore all the options. Am glad you shared your experience.February 6, 2018 at 12:53 pm #1014MisshaParticipant
Hi everyone! I’m new here and glad that there is a special community for indended parents. Well, I am in the middle of my journey now and can’t help worrying about the other part of my surrogate’s pregnancy. Unfortunately, our first try with a surrogate didn’t succeed and the lovely woman were replaced. Next time we got the same result. It’s our third surrogate so we’ve never been so far before and this scares me a bit. I’m looking for support of other IPs and would be glad if I can be helpful to someone. Would love to hear from othersFebruary 8, 2018 at 6:39 am #1027AnonymousInactive
