Could my cramps have been cysts? I actually do not think I'm pregnant at all now, and am wondering if what I was experiencing was a cyst? I only had one once before that I know of, and I can't remember what the symptoms were.

I have never had cysts on natural cycles, but if I understand correctly, meds can cause them, and I've been on meds for months, so wondering if maybe my symptoms are cysts. Has anyone had these where they cause lots of cramping 7DPO or so???

I know I need to just relax and I am going to, promise - just trying to figure it out, so in future cycles I know what to expect. I will be in the looney bin if I keep going through this. It's insane.

the bin is waiting for you! just teasing. If it helps...this BFP I had a cyst (seperate from the corpus luteum) and I didn't get any cramping from it. I also had a cyst in the stim stage of one of my last IVF cycles and no cramping from it.

btw...if you had a cyst it would have been noted in yesterday's u/s.

I started stims for an IVF cycle. RE didn't know I had a cyst until I was about half way through the stims. He decided to move forward with it because I had so many follicles. I think I had 13, but he only retrieved 9 because he didn't want to go near the cyst.

I rarely got cramps from the cysts or the endo which I supposedly have (or had?)...

I'm ready to jump out the window. I want to know what the heck is going on. I think it's the crinone, and if negative, I'm never taking that stuff again. Lucy - I hope you are having an ok time with this, I'm insane! I guess it's not a cyst, but what the hell. I'm on the verge of tears. Thanks for the input, it definitely helps. You guys rock.

go out and take a brisk walk up the block; do something for a quick distraction.

This is horrible for you I know but you have to find some activity when you're not working, that will keep you distracted and sane.

I'm tempted to encourage you to take some Prometrium (of course with Cooper's awareness). For many of us, when taken orally, it acts as a sleeping pill.

I was taking at Cooper's direction, and I was to take it at night. But often I'd take it early just so that I could konk out and stop thinking and worrying.
