Unfortunately the gut feeling reins again and it was not good news the next day.
The scan showed that my egg had shrunk and my lining too. This means that either the egg was bad quality or it was a cyst OR that the cyst in my left ovary caused more havoc than we realised – thanks ‘Cyst of doom’!
I had to have another round of blood tests to see what was going on with my hormones, as my monthly cycle has not stopped and maybe because of the ‘Cyst of doom’, my body is only starting a proper monthly cycle now. Apparently, this would actually be amazing, as it would mean that what we had just looked at for the last week wouldn’t count – however that is only a slim chance and highly unlikely. It is more likely that this cycle is a bust.
It was explained to me that it is normal and that every cycle is different but that this situation that was happening to me was “very strange” and the word ‘weird’ was used more than once. I felt like telling them that I am a bit strange and a bit weird so that’s not really a surprise!
I had to go back at 1pm to chat about the blood and hormone results and to see where we go from here.
I’m still keeping positive until the Greek lady tells me not to be!
(as the news I received at 1pm was not so good and the conversation and process was extremely emotional, painful, personal and taxing, I would prefer to share it with you through the message I sent to my friends to keep them updated and keep the more detailed and emotional parts to myself as I am not keen to re-live it again)
‘This round is cancelled.
My oestrogen levels are extremely low – this is bad.
Apparently because of my diagnosis of low egg reserve, cysts are common.
I will go back on Tuesday for more hormone tests to see what my body is doing and then we will discuss my further options.
Always trying to see the good – this does not count towards my second round, so good news on the financial front.
Will let you know how Tuesday goes.
Currently getting drunk on Greek Sauv!’
