Question about cysts

Post by Jilbert » Wed Nov 12, 2008 9:58 pm

I have been going through ART treatments for the last year. It seems that my left ovary makes at least one cyst (or follicle that is >10mm) at the beginning of each cycle. We have had three failed IUI's. We had one IVF that resulted in two eggs, however they both failed to fertilize. We have had to cancel two IVF cycles in a row because of estrogen-producing cysts now. The cysts have interfered with the ability of the other follicles to respond to stims, and I feel that until the cyst issue is resolved, that I won't be able to do any cycles.

Does anyone know of any way to "quiet" my left ovary, so that it won't produce an early cyst/large (useless) follicle?

I went for a scan last week for a fibroid check and i had no fibroids
but they found a cyst on my left ovary 2mm called a corpus luitem
cyst thesa can grow bigger but can also vanish when you have your
Af my Af arrived 2 days after i was told i had the cyst and just hoping
now that the cyst has gone (fingerscrossed)
Was your cyst a corpus luitem cyst ??

doc said to me its when a egg has been produced but left the fluid filled

I heard that accupunture is great for ivf and cysts etc i have not tried
it myself i listen to hypno music and i am told that this can be good
for your ovarys so maybe try it yourself :) it can stop cysts so i was told

I do not know why your doctor would cycle you for iui or ivf if you had a baseline follie over 10mm. All they have to do is put you on bcp/patch for a couple of weeks to resolve the cyst and go from there. I think you may need a new doctor.

accupunture is great for ivf and cysts, but you will need to take herb as well. The herb gets rid anything toxic in your body. Accupunture is great to relax your body and improve the blood flow. The reason I know this been through for the past a few years. The herb keeps my body warm. I will this information on my website.
