ovarian cysts and pregnancy
I have been diagnosed with fibroid tumors and ovarian cysts. I had an IUD inserted to reduce the symptoms of both (it hasn't worked). Now I am considering pregnancy and am curious if either of the above mentioned medical maladies will inhibit pregnancy. Can I get pregnant? Can I carry the baby full term? And are there any risks for the baby or myself?

If you have POCS, you may not be ovulating and may have difficulty conceiving. The fibroids could also be a problem, depending on their size and position.
