Vicky Pattisonhas spoken out about her fears she’ll never have a baby after she was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst.
The formerGeordie Shorestar andI’m A Celeb!winner,who recently revealed her plans to freeze her eggs, has opened up abouta diagnosis of a cyst on her ovary after experiencing painful periods last year.
Speaking to The Sun, the 34 year old explained how she had immediately become 'fixated' on her chances to have children with boyfriend, Ercan Ramadan, after her diagnosis.
"Of course, that was my main concern – they do warn you about that cysts can make it difficult to conceive naturally," she said.
"That was all I was thinking when I came out of the doctor. I wasn’t even bothered about the pain anymore, that was what I was fixated on."
Following her diagnosis, Vicky and boyfriend Ercan, 37, have discussed alternative methods to starting a family.
"Ercan gave me a lovely pep talk, he said: 'I’m sure everything will work out and if it doesn’t there are so many different ways for us to be parents', which was lovely and exactly the right thing to say.
"He doesn’t always get it right bless him, but he hit the nail on the head there."
Vicky revealed her diagnosis on Instagram at the end of November last year, admitting that while she was relieved to know the source of the pain after so long, it wasn’t the information she was expecting.
Since posting, she’s sought solace on social media from others in a similar position.
"All these beautiful women chatting to us on Instagram, saying they had heard similar things when they were younger and of course ended up having really healthy happy children,” she told The Sun.
"I was initially a little bit upset and shocked and that was my main concern but now I’m not. I think there are people far worse off and I should be very lucky.

"This has acted as a real catalyst I think and you know when you think something isn’t possible it makes you realise how you really feel about it, like when you break up with someone and then you realise how much you love them."
Vicky and Ercanrecently celebrated their third anniversary together, but she says they’re not ready for children quite yet – with their dog Milo being enough for now.
However, they would never want to rule out having children in the near future.
"I already have my January goals – I want to learn how to drive – I am leaving 2022 as a f****** driver, that’s non-negotiable. And I am also going to have a freezer full of eggs."
