Removing your ovaries and uterus doesn't leave a girl with a lot of options for having babies. It seems like every woman should have a right to do that, shouldn't we? I know that I'm not ready for kids now, but how am I going to feel a few years from now?
Weather I'm ready to make these decisions or not, I had to consider other options. Freezing my eggs came up..but when I discussed it with the doc, she told me about all the hormones they would have to pump into me in order to produce these eggs. And unfortunately I'm kinda pressed for time here. Plus, seeing as hormones actually aid in the development of cancer cells, that would sort of defeat the purpose.
I never considered adoption before all this. You grow up, and you think things are just going to go as the pretty picture you have in your head....Girl meets Boy, Boy plays guitar and drives Camero, Boy and Girl fall in love, Girl makes babies.
My life may not be the pretty picture I imagined, but it's still mine....and it's a good one. If I am meant to be a mom one day, then it will happen. Only God knows, but I have faith.
