So, remember those 2 nagging feelings I had a while ago?
Well, I have been so busy I haven't had a chance to blog about this, BUT, I did put a call in to Dr S.tegman's office about the likelihood of my left fimbriatic cyst being an impedance to pregnancy.
But then there was the issue of, why (since surgery last April, anyway), have I had almost exclusively left-sided ovulations??
I had another ultrasound on CD 13 this cycle (Thursday) at my clinical site. The sonographer, one of the women I work with, measured my follicles for me, and took a picture of a "hemorrhagic cyst" on my right side. It was clearly NOT a follicle. But I immediately said, "Wait... I had the same thing last cycle!" Last cycle when she said "hemorrhagic cyst," I assumed I had just ovulated from the right, and was about to ovulate from the left within a few hours. (When a cyst ruptures, it bleeds into itself, so a corpus luteum is, at different stages, a hemorrhagic cyst.)
But this cycle, I was at least 1 full day before ovulation. And the structure, whatever it was, was not a "fresh" corpus luteum. It was completely homogeneous throughout. Otherwise known as a chocolate cyst...
The sonographer said it, too. Possible. Not definite.
But I'm thinking, yeah. That would most certainly explain it.
I got a free pelvic MRI a few months ago, also- (working at the imaging center has its perks!) and in the report, the radiologist said a hemorrhagic cyst was noted... I was on CD NINE and still bleeding at the time!! My Dr and I both dismissed it... but now...
I emailed my NaPro Dr, and she concurs it seems likely it is a small endometrioma, because a residual corpus luteal cyst would resolve itself within a month, and NOT interfere with ovulation on that side.
Too bad it's the end of the year, and I'll have to start over again with my deductible when I schedule surgery :( Yes, I've decided I definitely want to get rid of it- it's only going to grow in time, and maybe he can remove that fimbriatic cyst on the left, while he's at it.
On the 13th day of Christmas, my Lord God gave to me...
'sall good. I'm ok with it. He's keeping me on my toes :)
