Pregnancy and endometrioma/chocolate cyst


Does anyone have any experience with getting pregnant whilst there is an endometrioma and how was the pregnancy?

I had surgery in May to remove a 10cm cyst and other small cysts (all endometriomas), which went well. However, an ultrasound in October shown recurrence of endometriomas on both ovaries. I can't get an appointment with consultant until January.

My questions are:

is it possible to get pregnant with cysts?

Are there any repercussions during pregnancy?

Thanks x

  • Hi, sorry for the delay. I only joined the forum today.

    I have endo but did not know that i had a chocolate cyst until I had my 12 week scan. They told me that it would not hinder the baby's development in any way- mine was approx 10cm too.

    The option i had was to leave it as it was and then have a small op after having the baby to remove it via keyhole- they also said it might pop on its own as the baby grew bigger.

    In the end my baby was breach and i elected for a planned cesarean and they removed the cyst at the same time.

    As far as i remember no follow up was offered to me in regard to scans or anything .

    hope this helps?
