I was diagnosed with a Hypothalamic glioma at age 16 after not starting my period despite being given different types of hormone. The pediatric endocrinologist I saw from age 16-20 told me that it may be possible for me to get pregnant but it would likely be difficult. I am now 30 years old and I would like to get an answer to this question, but I do not know where to start. I do not have a period without being on birth control and I know that my pituitary gland was damaged due to the tumor and that is why I was put on the birth control. I want to have children but I am open to a variety of different ways of becoming a mother. I just need to know where to start. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Women with your condition can usually conceive with induction of ovulation. This can be accomplished by the administration of fertility drugs that will stimulate your ovaries to produce eggs.
The best way to start is to consult with a fertility specialist.
Hope this helps,
