So I took yesterday off of work because I had a terrible migraine. Today I had a lot of work to catch up so I came to my mother's home office early so we could get started. Right after I got there I had this sharp pain in my lower abdomen. I thought it was strange and waited for it to go away... it didn't. I felt like someone was stabbing me repeatedly in my ovaries. It reminded me of that Ron Burgundy movie quote "I'm gonna punch you in the ovary, that's what I'm gonna do. A straight shot. Right to the babymaker."

So I end up pretty my doubled over in pain for an hour. I completely freaked my mom out and she was insisting we go to the ER. I just couldn't go, all I could think is she's going to be there and is going to ask about what medications I'm on and I'm going to have to say Clomid. What a terrible way for my mom to find out we're undergoing fertility treatments, not to mention I'm absolutely sure she would blame whatever is going on with me on the Clomid because she is really anti-medicine.

So I just tell my mom to let me lie there for a bit. This was serious pain, I have a very high pain tolerance and I've never felt anything like it in my life.

After an hour passed the pain went away. I'm fairly certain I had a ruptured ovarian cyst and called my doctor's office about it and the nurse said there really was nothing they could do except give me an ultrasound to confirm it and pain meds. Well I don't need to have the expense from an ultrasound on my crappy insurance, I'm sure I'd end up paying for the whole thing and the pain is pretty much gone, not to mention I don't particularly want to drive into downtown Portland right now.

I don't think this rules me out this cycle necessarily. I'm 6 dpo and I've heard that ruptured cysts wouldn't necessarily negatively affect implantation, which would be occurring in the next couple days, so fingers crossed that we're still on track for this cycle!

So another day of work wasted. I feel like I'm falling apart piece by piece because I'm never sick and to have two different things wrong with me in two days is so odd! I joked with my friend Carrie that I was probably going to get hit by lightening tomorrow... :: knock on wood :: Hopefully tomorrow I get through the day without any sort of crazy pain!

Are there other possibilities for what the pain could've been? It might be worth it to get checked out, just in case. If it happens again you probably should really go to the doctor to make sure it's what you think it is, and not something else. And this is why US insurance companies suck ass... =(

I am so sorry that you had such bad pain.

The month I got my BFP, I had a corpus luteum cyst and it hurt really bad.

It doesn't mean anything as far as TTC this cycle. GL!

I have PCOS (along with my stage 4 endo) and expirenced extremely painful cysts while TTC. It seems the Clomid made them a tad worse, but that of course is because you are stimulating that overy (like you didn't already know this!) It would be safe to check out though, my dr. kept a pretty watchful eye on me. If I remember right it says in some Clomid lit. that cysts may grow bigger on the drug. But, cysts mean movement in there, so you never know ;) And a bonus? If you get an u/s they might just be able to tell u where that darn egg is! :)I've been there girl, my heart goes out to you! (hugs)
