Yesterday I came out and told my mom about our IF struggles. I'm glad I did, because she was really awesome about it. She told me that when I was little I had a strangulated ovary as a result of an intestinal hernia. I knew about the hernia, and I knew that I had surgery to get it repaired, but all this time I never knew my ovary was involved. Apparently my mom asked at the time if this would mean I would have difficulty getting pregnant someday and the doctor said no. That was 26 years ago though, what if they just didn't know? Or what if the surgeon made an error? My mom is going to look into finding out which ovary it was. I tried researching it online but I didn't find much, only that it is most common in infants. I was 18 months when it happened to me so it fits. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else has had this or has heard of it.
