Can cysts on ovaries affect fertility? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi I have a quick question. I have a history of cysts on my right ovary. Can this decrease fertility? My fiance also has a cyst on his testes. How will this affect our chances of having a baby.
Having cyst on one ovary does not decrease your fertility by itself
ok and what about my fiance>
I am not sure what caused it. i went to the hospital one night because it ruptured.
Cysts in the testes are usually retention cysts, so that will not affect your partner's fertility
Okay, how big was the cyst? any idea about that?
ok :) i also think i have a cyst on my ovary now. i get very sharp pains around my right ovary when i am ovulating.
relax, sharp pain during ovulation are normal
ok thats good haha.
that is because the normal ovary releases one ovum(Egg) per cycle
why does it only hurt my right one though and never my left?
and this egg has to mature, and it takes about 2 months, so each time an egg is released from on of the matured follicle (which looks like a cyst)
Probably because of some scar tissue on your right ovary that makes it difficult for the follicle to rupture
You have had a ruptured cyst on the right side, so that could lead to scarring
I would advise you to get your hormone levels checked to make sure they are normal
if they are normal then you can be sure that your chances of having a baby are equal to any other couple
also my periods are never normal the only way i can tell when im ovulating is by the pain and the mucus deposit.
in that case I would strongly recommend you go for hormonal assays
get your hormones levels checked
that will give further insight into why your periods are not normal
i also didnt get my period until after i was 15 years old.
That is acceptable
the age at which an individual gets her first period does vary
ok i was always told thats really late
one can get it as early as 10 years, and some get it as late as 18
I wouldn't consider 15 as late
do you hav any tips on how we may be able to get pregnant quicker?
I do have some tips
but are you not a bit young to be thinking about having babies?
1. Do not use any protection like spermicidal jellies, condoms etc
Haha Some people do say that. I have raised my nephew and neice since I was 15 years old. My fiance and I both want to have a baby. My sisters and extended family all started having kids young too.
2. Having unprotected sexual intercourse from days 10 to 17 of your menstrual cycle will be the best time to conceive
it is up to you
Ideally you should wait till 22 years
4. Enjoy the act of sex, having an orgasm increases the chances of conception
That is it for the tips
is there anything else you would like to ask me?
um no thanks :)
Thanks for consulting me here
have a great day and life ahead
