Today I stumbled upon this quote
"Having a child is surely the most beautifully irrational act that two people in love can commit."
and I cried, and cried. When I was told that I might loose both of my ovaries a jolting fear came over me. The thought of not being able to carry my own child, is overwhelmingly depressing.
Why does something that is supposed to be so natural have to become this huge medical ordeal. Yesterday I spoke with my doctor regarding my endometriosis. Based on my ct scan results, he gave us a less than 5% chance of conceiving a child naturally. He said my cysts are deep, and the scaring is all over the place.
So even if I do retain my ovaries, he assumes they are too badly damaged to function. So we're talking egg harvesting, followed by IVF. This baby making ordeal is going to get expensive!
