Benched.

Did I say "here we go again"? I was wrong.

There's a cyst of 2.9 mm on my right ovary. I can't cycle this month. I'm now on birth control pills (oh, the irony!) to try to shrink it.

So... nothing to see here, folks. Absolutely nothing.

I'm on birch control this month as well... looks like we'll be cycling at the same time again this try.

Good luck!

Been there. Way too many times. Sucks. So sorry.

Blah. That sucks.

Oh dear...guess that explains not getting your period even though you weren't pregnant. I guess it must have just kept on going....

Well DAMN the stupid cysts anyway! Argh! I know that BCP never works on my cysts, Lord knows, we tried though! I had to have a lap the first time around when a cyst was in our way, and the second one was aspirated (using the same technology/tools as for egg retrieval) when we were on the verge of our IVF. If the BCP doesn't work, you might like to ask about the aspiration option; quick, easy, relatively painless and it kept me right on track. Sending hugs to you; keep us posted.

Aurelia ~ you're a cycle behind here... the not getting my period was not this past cycle but the one before. This cyst wasn't there last time I had an ultrasound. It's news to all of us.

I went through a pill month to help shrink my cyst on my right ovary. Bummed me out that I had to wait till next month to begin ttc again. This was a few years back that I went through that. I still have PCOS but it isn't as bad as it used to be and my cycles have been fairly normal. Hopefully your cyst will shrink and this next month you'll be back on track again. Good luck.

Oh no! I soooooooo feel your pain! After my first cycle (trying for #2 anyway) on Clomid and some other meds, I ended up sitting out from Dec to Feb with cysts. So incredibly furstrating!

Here's hoping yours goes away quickly!

BTW, another blogger suggested I name my cyst, you know, to have some control over it or whatever. I highly recommend it!

Oh, Sigh. I guess your ovaries aren't any better behaved than mine!
