CD 20 Wasn't Fun

Yesterday I did another OPK, still a faint line.  No LH surge yet.  Today CD 21 I decided to not bother to test at all.  At least not after what happened last night.

The ovarian cyst pain has been getting worse.  By nightfall I'm in really bad pain.  The RE has told me to take it easy and they know I still want to try for a baby on my own but have warned me to be careful.

Well so last night, as per my every other day rule, I tried.  It hurt.  I bled.  I bled.  And I bled.  I passed a clot.  I'm like WTF!  Its not bad enough that I'm getting endo cramps after I pee, I get the ovarian cyst pain and the nausea from it too but now I'm going to bleed again!

The bleeding stopped after an hour.  I swear it was like a bad slasher flic with the blood on my thighs, towel, and every where else.  But I knew it couldn't be my period yet, even that is minimum of five days away still and I should only be spotting.

I'll report this little mishap to the RE office on Monday.  They should know that it looks like the endometriosis is indeed growing back and quickly.  Before we go ahead with the donor eggs I'll have to get another HSG or SIS and some other testing.  I'm really hoping that I'm wrong about the endometriosis.  Maybe it was just a cyst ripping open and causing a bleed?

All I know is that I don't need this to be happening before I go on vacation.  Even if it is just one night and two days away from home.  I need to get out of Dodge for a while.

    1. I'm hoping that I can enjoy it. I'm in a lot of pain and the acetaminophen isn't helping much.

  3. Wow, sorry you are going through all of that. I have stage IV endometriosis and it sucks. I too used an egg donor (my sister). I actually didn't know that you cysts bursting caused bleeding. I guess mine have all erupted while on my period because I haven't bled between periods but I have had them burst between ultra sound appointments. I am tempted to have a hysterectomy but am too scared to go through with it.
    I hope you pain goes away and you can start your new cycle soon. Waiting is the worst part.

    1. At last cutting mine was stage II and III. Whenever I've had a cyst rupture I've never had the bleeding exit my body. I'm still having a lot of cyst type pain right now. I'm not sure what the heck happened the other day. All I know is that the pain is worse now.

    1. Thanks. I should give up but I can't. I'd like to have a family with my spouse. Its just scary that these cysts I keep getting might prevent me from moving on to donor eggs.
