Large ovarian cyst removed. Will there be any complications in pregnancy?

Hi I had a very large ovarian cyst removed about 19 months ago. i had a very large cut down the whole middle of my stomach as it was nearly two stone weight. My husband and I wanted to start a family but were not sure how long we should wait to start trying. Can you please help me as im terrified to become pregnant and this may affect me during prenancey and giving birth. Thank you.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern.
If one ovary is removed, a woman may continue to menstruate and have children. If both ovaries are removed, a procedure called a bilateral oophorectomy, menstruation stops and a woman loses the ability to have children.
If both of your ovaries are removed (bilateral oophorectomy), but your uterus remains, you may be able to become pregnant using assisted reproductive technology.

Hope this helps.
Please write back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
