    Ruptured Cyst / IVF

    Welp, I knew it would happen sooner or later but I suffered my first ruptured ovarian cyst in April. That was, without a doubt, one of the most painful things ever!

    We've decided no more clomid rounds, and have started our first cycle of IVF treatments this month. Anyone here had any success with IVF?

    Hey Shannon, I'm sorry to hear about the ruptured cyst you experienced. I have had many cysts but have never had one rupture and I hear they are extremely painful. Hope you are feeling better at this point. I don't have experience with IVF but I know we have women with success stories here and I hope they will see this post and share theirs with you! Good luck to you and your DH! Wishing you all the best
