Vicky Pattison has spoken about the process of freezing her eggs after being diagnosed with a 4cm cyst on one of her ovaries. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, the Geordie Shore star, 34, admitted that she was “starting to worry” about being able to conceive as she gets older.
I did find out that I’m in a really good place for egg retrieval
Vicky shared how she was warned she may not be able to conceive naturally, which led to her starting the process of egg freezing.
Confirming she’s “early on” in the process, the star said: “I basically just had the MOT and only just had the results back.
“But I did find out that I’m in a really good place for egg retrieval.
“To what I would have said, like freeze eggs or freeze embryos. (sic)
“We can start doing that relatively soon, which was lovely news.
However, the star admitted that she was left “worrying” ahead of starting the process.
“Because the older you get, the more complicated it can be and I was starting to worry,” she added.
Last year, Vicky was left stunned after being told she had a cyst on her ovary after she experienced painful periods.
The star later explained that it had disappeared by itself, meaning she had luckily avoided having it removed.
“I knew my periods were becoming more and more painful and I just couldn’t decide if it was a side effect of having the implant removed from the arm.
“I didn’t know if it was just because I was getting older, everybody warned us they get worse when you get older,” she added.
Vicky went on: “I honestly just had no clue and I was so woefully ignorant which I think a lot of [us are like].”
However, the star told how she was soon reassured after hearing from women who had the same health issue.
Addressing the warnings from doctors Vicky said: “You know, [they say] ‘this could make conceiving naturally very difficult.’
“For a woman in her 30s to hear that when you know the clocks against you anyway it was just really quite traumatic.
“But when I put it on social media, everyone was so lovely, I had women saying to me, ‘honestly, I’ve got like a 12 centimetre Cyst On one of mine, and I’ve got three lovely boys.’
“So it was really comforting,” the Geordie Shore star said.
Vicky also spoke about the new The Pour Moi x Vicky Pattison Edit.
The star said: “I spent years with my boobs falling out the top and my bum cheeks falling out the bottom of bikinis.
“So it’s really lovely to be working with a brand that not only am I proud to wear, but that also just fits really well as well.”
The Pour Moi x Vicky Pattison Edit is available from 26th May 2022, exclusively online here.
