    Hi, when i was 16 i had my left fallopian and either 1/4 or 3/4 of my ovary removed (on the same side), due to a cyst.

    I am now 25 been a lovely relationship with my partner for almost 3 years now. We have been trying since last june 2010 and nothing. I know every one says you should wait upto 2 years but am i wasting my time is it even possible with what i have left?
    This is such a draining subject for me now it really upsets me.

    I had blood tests done the 1st day of my period and 21st day after for 3 months, which showed i was not ovulating properly.

    About a month ago i started to feel a bit of pain similar to the pain i had with the cysts so my doc has sent me for a scan which is the 13th of Oct, do you think they could tell me more whilst im there maybe they can see something i cant feel.

    I dont know what i am expecting to hear from posting this, maybe a miracle i dont know.

    I know I answered you on another community, but I just wanted to let you know that I hope you find out more after your scan on Thursday.

    Please let us know how it goes,

    They should be able to give you more information after your scan. Generally we believe fertility should be intact even if one ovary is removed. Go ahead and ask your practitioner about how you can address problems with ovulation after you get the go ahead from your scan.

    Hi, After my scan yesterday they have found 2 small cysts on my right ovary she has asked me to come back in 6weeks to see if they are still there or have hopefully gone. In regards to not ovulating I am most defiantly going to speak to my Gp about clomid as a possibility.

    Thank you for your replies
