I want a child before its too late

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

I had my ovary and Fallopian tube removed because of an ovarian cyst, since 2010 when it happened i have been trying to get pregnant. I have been in and out of hospitals and doctors offices (not fertility doctors) trying to figure out what is wrong and why i cant conceive. I am now 24 years old, and still haven't had a child. I have all the symptoms of PCOS and Endometriosis, I researched on my own. I basically get the run around from these doctors and i no longer trust them. I just want to know where should i go and what should i do? I'm at lost for words, Me and my husband want to start a family now that hes out of the military. I'm looking for some type of guidance. Just because I am only 24 does not mean anything i am Liable of losing my other ovary or any other organs at that. I am always depressed and looking for answers that are never there. If anyone could guide me in the right direction i would be very great full.

If you makes you feel any better i have a friend with sever PCOS and she had a child by accident in the last year without the treatments they said would be required for at least a year before trying to consume. Her baby is now 8 months old and healthy.

no one can tell you if you can or can't have kids.

As far as it matters more to you than others... not so sure that is as true as you might think. I'm simply saying it's been 3 years. Many others wait much longer.

You did not answer if you know when you ovulate, or if you've gone to fertility doctors. On top of that have you taken fertility treatments?

Yes, I do know that fertility treatments and adoption can cost money, but the truth is if you're not willing to put up the expense can you really afford a child for the next 30 years? They aren't cheap even when you have them naturally.

Age should not be an issue considering that i could lose my other organs at any given time. I want to be reassured that ill be able to have children. It matters more to others, some can brush it off and others cant and nowadays adopting a child cost more than having your own.

Do you know when you ovulate? I know you go to doctors but most assume we know this stuff being women. You only said doctors, you didn't specify if you've gone to fertility doctors or not.

You're only 24, it isn't like you're 40 still trying.

Sometimes there isn't any real answer. My foster sister had 2 children when she was young. She remarried. and has been trying for 8 years to have another child. There is no answer to her not being able to. She even lost 80 pounds thinking it would help (usually this is the answer if you're over weight, if you're underweight you may need to gain some)

If nothing else start looking into adoption. There are so many children who need a family. I know that's not what some people want to hear.. they want their own child, but give it some thought. You can always have your own biological baby later on if it happens.
