Cyst in my tube


New here. Yesterday my husband and I went for a hycosy after almost 2 years of trying to conceive. Whilst my uterus and ovaries appear to be fine with a good number of follicles, we learnt that my right ovary has a large cyst in it that has totally blocked and damaged.

We have another consultation to discuss our options but the Dr said he would consider us for ivf but we would also seriously consider having at least the left tube removed. My husband is an absolute star and is being so lovely and supportive.

I feel utterly exhausted, but mainly like I'm in a bubble. It's all so surreal to be told that what you expected to be a normal part of life like having children.

My main question and reason for coming here is to ask if anyone else has had a similar experience and what to expect both emotionally and physically from the diagnosis and the ivf.

Hiya, I've had a similar experience to yours. I have reoccurring ovarian cysts which I had removed a couple of weeks ago, only to be told on Tuesday that they had returned but not as large as they were before. I was absolutely devastated, but my consultant said that they still wanted to try IUI and were hopeful it would still work as long as they cysts didn't get any bigger. So we've just started our treatment and I'm on my 6th day of injections, with another scan tomorrow to see if my follicles are behaving themselves. All I can say to you is have hope. I know how easy it is for one person to say that to another, but I honestly believe trying to remain positive will help you no end. Emotionally it has been difficult but my boyfriend has been amazing, letting me have my meltdowns and hugging me if I cry for no reason. Support is definitely key to helping you feel better about yourself and/or the process. Physically I'm sooooooooooo tired but am sometimes convinced it's in my head! Lots of rest helps too. Sorry if this is a bit long winded! Wishing you all the best on your journey and am sending you lots of baby dust xxx



Thanks. Now it's all sunk in a bit more I'm starting to feel much more positive. I have a good support network around me but it's just nice knowing there are other people out there going through the same thing. It makes the readjusting a lot easier so thank you very much.

All the best to you on your journey too 🌻 xx
