Another Day...Another Cyst

I had another u/s today and my labs tested. No surprise here...still a cyst on my left ovary it's 3cm. The good news was it is not producing any hormones. So Dr. G wants me to get it drained. I am so torn I don't know what to do. Should I get it drained? If I get it drained I say on BCP's for 5 days after that. Once CD1 arrives I start the drugs. If anyone one has any advice please let me know. Do I think my cyst will go away on its own once I start a new cycle... absolutely. Do I think a cyst will pop up on my right over after this one goes away on it's own...absolutely. Basically every time I ovulate I get at cyst that stays. Here is my track record with cyst. These are all the months I have been check for cysts and had them. All the months not listed doesn't mean I didn't have a cyst it just means I did get it checked that month.
December 2010-cyst
February 2011-cyst
April 2011-cyst
May 2011-cyst
June 2011-cyst
July 2011-cyst
I feel with this track record I need to do something because doing nothing isn't helping either. My husband thinks I should wait and the body will work itself out but...that hasn't happened yet. I am super torn. I don't want to rush anything or have a crappy cycle especially with the cost of everything, yet I don't want to not listen to Dr. G's advice. I hate infertility!


  1. Geez...that sucks! I think after all of these months, I would just get it drained. It has to be soooo frustrating!

  2. Oh, I'm sorry to hear that you have to deal with this. I think I would do what the doctor recommends. Is it a big procedure to get it drained? I hate infertility too!

  3. I would say drain it so you can keep moving forward. It's always something in the life of IF isn't it?

  4. These things are coming back to haunt you every time. You may consider draining it but I don't know what that would mean about another one coming back when you least need it anyways. Can they supress you in a different way? You are not in the IVF ejection seat of your early 40s yet, so take some time to figure it out.

  5. Ugh, I know nothing about cysts, but I know that this decision sucks. :( Look luck deciding what to do.

  6. It's a hard one. I hate decisions too. Is it too expensive to get it drained?
