Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I have 1/2 of my thyroid due to a cyst a year ago Nov.4 2008, I don't take meds anymore for it, but could that be why I'm not preg. yet?? I'm 31 and we have been trying for over a year now. I also only have my left ovary.

wow that's an intense question and one that you should really ask your doctor. I am sure if you wish to get pregnant and it does affect your fertility they may have treatments for you.
If you are not on medication then you should get your thyroid levels checked. Why aren't you on medication? It can affect fertility.
