Any information and adivce you can offer would be most appreciated. But first a little about what I need...
Im a 24 year old female recently diagnosed with Complex Hyperplasia with Atypia. I had a period for 5 months before my OBGYN finally decided to schedule me for a hysteroscopy and D&C. They removed several polyps from my uterus and sent biopsy's and such to the lab. The results came back abnormal and so they got sent to johns hopkins for more advanced screening. Results being...this disease. I have done plenty of research and have decided that I do not want to risk getting cancer in a few years and would like to opt for a hysterectomy... however, i want to have a baby first. I am scheduled to see a GYN oncologist and a reproductive endocrinologist next week but would like to know if anyone has been in this situation and conceived a baby before having the uterus removed. A baby is incredibly important to me and my boyfriend is on board 100% to make this happen if its possible. If not then I am opting to have the hysterectomy and freeze my eggs for a surrogate. Im trying to be positive, but there is limited information reagrding pregnancy with this disease. Something to know... I am overweight but have been actively losing weight (the healthy way) since october. I am down 30 pounds. The doctor says losing weight can only help. I also quit smoking about 3 months ago... Please advise.
Hello, I was 23 when my husband and I found out I had the same thing, we were trying to get pregnant for about 4 years and had no luck so we finally decided to see a new doctor about getting help that's when I had an ultrasound and found out I had polyps after a D&C to remove the polyps I found out they were pre-cancerous. My doctor put me on megace for 3 months then I had an edometrial biopsy to check on my cells, after that I tried clomid for 3 months and had no luck with it. So we were sent to see a fertility specialist, so we could get pregnant quickly. Our fertility doc put us on femara and ovidrel. The first month we did the drugs and an iui and had no sucess, the second month no success but the third month we got pregnant and now have a 3 month old daughter and are hoping to try for a second! So don't give up your dream of having a child it can happen with the right drugs. Good luck!!

Thanks very much. We are likely on the same boat with 5 years of long struggle trying to get pregnant, my wife is going through a lot of struggle, pain and stress. she has been through a lot all these years she had reoccurring of complex/simple hyperplasia with atypia/without atypia contiguously and she is on megace higher dose.5 months back everything was normal and we went in for Iui, firt one failure, second one had too may follicles so had not cancel out, when trying for third one and the process was not happening and had to go for a D&C and bioposy that's when again the complex hyperplasia with atypia has been known..so on treatment for again on high dosage of meagace..desperately need all your prayers and blessing hope things work out and soon have a miracle baby.
