When I was 13 years old, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I had a tumor resected from my left ovary that was the size of a grapefruit and one taken from my right ovary that was the size of a golf ball. I am now 19, married and trying to concieve. I have been using Ovulation Predictor kits to try to pinpoint my ovulation to increase our chances. Problem is, I have an LH Surge every day. I also produce extremely high levels of estrogen. But I have a low egg count per cycle. My menstrual cycle is only 19 days long, so I get my period about every 2 weeks. My doctor suggested I try hormonal therapy to stimulate my ovaries. But, the hormonal therapy (Progesterone) would also act as a contraceptive, so it wouldn't help me get pregnant. So I was wondering, if you could help me find another way to help stimulate my ovarian function without using hormones. Maybe some herb I could take or a diet? Maybe even an exercise. I'm looking for any way to help increase my egg production so I have a higher chance of getting pregnant. If you can help, please let me know. I'm willing to try anything.
