I got pregnant using Menopur injections along with Ovidrel and IUI. I had my 1st U/S at 6w3d and the baby is fine and had a HB of 126. However, the sonographer saw 2 cysts on my left ovary that are huge. She said they were the size of oranges. The perinatologist compared it to having a pimple the size of your body on your face. They said it was probably because of taking fertility medications (which is weird b/c I had 3 big follicles on my right ovary, but none appeared very big on my left). Anyway, they said that normally when you don’t get pregnant the follicles are absorbed back into your body; however, b/c I got pregnant sometimes (especially w/ fertility meds.) cysts form. They asked me if I had any pain or anything like that, but I haven’t. They told me no BDing, and if i have any sharp, biting pain to go to the outpatient maternity clinic immediately. They said that they will probably shrink around the start of the 2nd trimester, but they might not. If they get too big or hurt (they can twist) I may need surgery in the 2nd trimester to remove them (it’s safer in the 2nd trimester). They said there’s really no harm to the baby.
Has anyone on here had these? If so, what was your experience like? When did they start to be absorbed? Fortunately I haven’t had any symptoms from them that I can think of, but it does worry me. I think they are causing me to be more bloated than I would be if I didn’t have them b/c it’s like having 2 oranges down there inside of me. However, I can’t tell if it’s normal baby-bloat or not. I also think they’ve caused me to gain 3lbs. just in the last 2-weeks, but I can’t tell. They are fluid-filled, so that would make sense, but I don’t know. I have only added 300 extra calories to my diet, per my dietician and doctor (and I closely watch these calories as a diabetic), and the calories are from healthy foods. I see my perinatologist tomorrow, but I’d really love to hear of other’s experiences if anyone has any to share.
Thanks for the support ladies!
