For Sale: Ovaries



Graphic by yours truly.

I went for a scan this morning to see if we can pretty please with sugar on top do another round.

Nope. No cycling for me. This time my ovaries dished up not one, not two, not three, or four but FIVE cysts that are between 5 and 6 mm each.  After a round of birth control pills.
I didn’t even know it was possible to grow cysts while on birth control. I thought the point of a month of suppression was to, well, suppress all the crap growing on them.

I guess I should have added  sugar AND a cherry on top to help win the universe over. Stupid me.

Now I am stuck at work watching the phone and waiting for Dr. Hope’s office to call back with instructions on what the heck to do next. I’m so tired of this game.

    Oh, honey. I am so sorry! What the hell is wrong with us? And 5 cysts? Frankly, I hope you are giving yourself credit for getting up everyday, because that is some painful shit. Seriously.

      This is going to sound insane, but I wish the cysts hurt. I never have any pain. My periods are light and only bring a few hours of cramping. My cysts never hurt, even when they rupture and fill me with bloody fluid. The only symptom of anything hormonal in my body are the crazy mood swings that Mr. Husband catches the brunt of.

      Lately I find myself wishing for some pain, a heavy period or cramps so I would at least have confirmation something was happening down there.

    Dammit! Oh Belle that sucks… I am so sorry girl. Like Rachel said you are doing an amazing job of functioning through all of this.. you deserve a damn month at a spa.
    Will they aspirate them at all to help move the process along a bit faster?

      A month at a spa would be amazing, or even a weekend. Someone should send Mr. Husband a “treat for Belle” idea… I have no idea about aspirating them. I’m still waiting to hear back from Dr. Hope. Unfortunately he was not in the office today since his flight home from vacation was cancelled. I have about a zillion questions for him and am hoping he can maybe meet with me Friday afternoon to address them…

    I am so so sorry hon. This sucks.
    Please be comforted by the fact that you are MEGA TALENTED and when you have your kid they will most likely be just as brilliant as you.
    Sending you a huge hug!
