Enlarged Ovary In Ultrasound

Megan P - February 23

I had my quad screening yesterday and the baby looks fine (12 weeks) but they saw that my right ovary was enlarged and they said if it continues to grow they might have to take it out DURING my pregnancy. Anyone else had this problem? What's going on??

WOW, I've never heard of this problem... The ovary itself was enlarged, or did you have a cyst on it?? Really, I would get a SECOND OPINION before removing this piece of your body. First of all, you really need it to secrete hormones, (even though you have another one, you MAY need hormone replacement, and secondly you will be only half as fertile for furtue children.) I had a large Ovarian cyst when I was a teenager, and they also wanted to remove the whole thing. I found another DR. and they just removed the cyst, and I kept my ovary. I have had no hormonal prob.s and am having Baby #2!! PLEASE, keep me posted!! GOOD LUCK< AND TAKE CARE!!
