Well, I had my first RE appointment this afternoon. Doc took our
history, then took me back for an ultrasound. And found a cyst on my
left ovary. So we're benched for the month to see if it goes away with
the help of birth control.
The cyst sounded pretty large, at
least to my uneducated ears. My left ovary measured 39 by 37 (mm?
whatever measurement, he just said numbers). The cyst? 36 by 33. Obviously I could have misheard because that sounds really large compared to my ovary. But those are the numbers coming to mind. My
right ovary measured something like 22 by 19, which he only determined
after a minute or two of searching because he couldn't find it at first.
disappointed. I'm sad. I've asked DH to just please let me be sad. I
understand it's an answer and we're taking steps to fix the problem. But
I'm still sad.
Now the question: is this cyst causing fertility
issues? He didn't really explain the concern over it, and I was so dazed
and whatnot that I didn't think to ask. Just nodded along with
everything he said, took my papers with lab instructions for my HSG and
blood work, and went on our merry way. I just don't know what affect
this cyst could be having and am curious what you knowledgeable ladies
know about these things.
I should note that I had a cyst on my left ovary back in June. Follow-up ultrasound in July showed it was gone. So now I'm not sure if this is the same one and the u/s tech missed it (doubtful) or if my left ovary just enjoys forming cysts.
