I was bummed when AF arrived a couple of days ago. I had hope, but realistically knew that getting pregnant on the first medicated cycle is unlikely. So we trudge on.
I had my CD 3 ultrasound today. They found a big ol' 3cm cyst (I think he said centimeter, but could've been millimeter). He said it could effect my period.
This may be too much TMI, but I want to document all this stuff. My periods go like this:
CD1 - CD2: medium flow
CD3: stops completely
CD4 - CD7: very light mostly just spotting
When the RE started to explain that this cyst is secreting hormones that are preventing me from releasing the lining of my uterus, it made sense. But this is not unusual for me. So was I ovulating every month but not shedding the lining? Who knows. He did say that if the lining isn't shed(ded?) properly, implantation would be nearly impossible even if we happen to conceive.
So this is what he decided to do: Ayges.tin (essentially progesterone) for 14 days. Once I stop that, I should get a period with in 1-3 days. I am to start Letro.zole on the 5th day after stopping the Ayges.tin and then having an follicle check.
I did read Ayges.tin can be used as birth control, which made me hesitant to use it, BUT chances are I'll be spotting the whole time anyway (i.e. NO SEX). lol
Anyone have experience with this?
