New here so just introducing myself. 33 yrs ttc since July 2017. Im nervous about joining up here because it seems like that final step to admitting I’m having trouble and it’s...difficult. I guess I’ve finally reached that point where I just need some support. My two closest co-workers both started ttc at 37 and 40 and had no trouble and im struggling with innapropriate jealousy.
A little about my...issues I guess. Had Paraguard IUD prior to July 2017. In November 2017 started experiencing increased pain during my cycle, the next month I noted that the pain continued well after aunt flow ended and past ovulation. I essentially spent the month of December in agony with seeming pms cramps. Finally went in to OB in January and she did an ultrasound to find a very large (lemon sized) cyst on my right ovary. She put me on BC for 3 months, I checked back in at that point and it had shrunk by 1 inch. She seemed unconcerned at this point and told me to be back on bc for 3 more months with no need for additional follow up unless I felt more pain.
FFWD a month and I stop BC early because....well I’m impatient. Ovulated normally a month later (per temping and cheapie ovulation trackers). Based on my admittedly inexperienced analysis of ff tracking, I seem to have a slightly short cycle that is semi-normal, averages 25 days with a somewhat short luteal phase lasting normally 12 days but can last up to 14 RARELY. I also seem to struggle maintaining high temp post ovulation, never get above 97.8, and average 97.6.
Overall it doesn’t seem like I’m having much of an issue, but no luck and the lack of any obvious problems is frustrating. I plan to go into the OB for a referral to an endocrinologist in January when our medical insurance can be changed, but wanted to step in here to give and receive some moral support.
