I just learnt yesterday from my scan that i had a mass in my uterus (63mm by 71mm). This was during my visit to the gyne as am 2 months pregnant. It is quite scary cos at age 15 i had an ovarian cyst which made me loose one of my ovaries. I since then had two children and am now expecting my third. I am quite concerned because i live in Africa where sometimes it is difficult to get proper and quality treatment. Anyone with such or similar experience.

  • I was four months pregnant when i was diagnosed with a softball sized cyst on one of my ovaries. I was hospitalized and closely monitored. It was decided that the ovary had to be removed. I was prepped for surgery. However, the day of the surgery, an ultrasound revealed that the ovary had ruptured on its own and the surgery was cancelled. I was glad that it was because it meant that the increased risk to the baby ended. Good luck! I hope your pregnancy continues without issue. After about 12 weeks, the baby no longer needs your ovaries and can produce its own hormones.
