RE Results = More Whining (Not Winning)

Good news: New doctor seems great. Knows about Pots Syndrome, lots of experience, put me at ease and seems very knowledgeable. Ultrasound showed that my ovaries, cervix and uterus all looked normal.

Bad news: They did an ultrasound and found a 2-inch cyst on or right next to my ovary. I'm going to be monitored for it the next two months and pray that it goes away on its own. Otherwise he thinks my best option would be to have surgery to remove it.

He seems to think that it may have been brought on by the Clomid, and that my doctor didn't look for it in my last ultrasound, which makes me so mad that I'm now dealing with this and will have to wait until it's gone to start trying again.

My future game plan is to wait until it's gone, try Femara instead of Clomid because of the fewer side effects and because it doesn't affect your lining, and go in for constant monitoring. I'm so glad I went with my gut and made this appointment. I've been having pain in my side for a few weeks now, and I'm glad I'm at least aware of it.

Not going to lie, I am really bummed out.


  1. Ugh, that sucks! I really appreciate you sharing this, though, because it helps me know I'm not alone.

  2. Mrs. Bee.. I don't know what this feels like, but know plenty of women that have been in your shoes. So at least know, you're not alone. When I miscarried, I hated when women would say things like, "it's never happened to me, but I'm so sorry." I wanted to be like "WTF! You have NO idea what I'm going through!" So, on some weird and twisted level, I know how shitty and sucky that all feels. In any case, you're right. that totally sucks. but, i'm here for ya and i have a great ear for bitching!! And at least it seems like you have some semblance of a "future game plan." Prayers for you!

  3. :( I'm sorry your appointment didn't go well. Waiting is tough. I'm currently waiting to recover from a miscarriage so that we can start trying again. Hopefully you won't have to wait too much longer. I'm so sorry you're going through this. I know there's nothing I can say to make it better.. so I'll just say that I'm sorry. {{hugs}}

  4. Do not fret my friend, this is a minor set back and you will recovery from this soon enough. Those cysts hurt like a mother! Good for you on calling the shots, you know you best. In time this will be "the thing you cried over" while you're holding your baby! (I am optimistic to a fault). Sorry you're bummed, it's a different path you have to travel. Keep positive. Hugs
