Not so great baseline appt :(

So today is CD 2 and I went in for my baseline appt today because CD 3 is tomorrow on a Saturday and they don’t take weekend appts for baselines since they are flexible by a day or two and can be moved to a weekday. So I drive all the way up there (60 miles there and back at $3.35 a gallon).

Ya’ll seriously – I did not expect this one.

Cysts. One huge one on each ovary. I’m sidelined this cycle. Can you BELIEVE this crap?!

She said they normally shrink on their own but if they don’t, I’ll need to go on BC for a cycle to help shrink them.

(((Michelle))) How long do your meds (that you've already paid for) last? Is it something that you could take a few months off from and get started with the psychologist/psychiatrist and then work with your psychologist/psychiatrist to help you through this last medicated cycle before taking a longer break or deciding to move on with life? I imagine that if the psych doctor you're going to go see specializes in infertility, they must know a thing or two about people who are still potentially TTC or working through the emotions that you are facing. Lots of (((HUGS)))

So sorry, Michelle :( I have had cysts for my whole reproductive life. They are tender if they get big and very painful if they burst. I really really hope yours shrink so you don't have to go through the pain of a burst one (or two). I also hope you don't have to go on BC cause that just seems 100% counter-productive.

Tee, my meds can last months and months so I'm not worried about that and I think you're right. I see my psychiatrist on Monday and this month will be good for me to use to focus on learning how to deal with all this better. The dr does specialize in infertility and women's issues in general; divorce, weight issues, dealing with your kids and family - I am really excited about it as I need help with two of those already! LOL

Thanks, Katie. I was surprised that I haven't felt them as big as she said they were (as big as a mature follicle, about 18 mm).
