Hi all!

We had an old post up here for quite some time, and since we've got a lot of new members I thought it was probably time to refresh it.

Join in and tell us a little about you and where you are on your TTC journey:

First name (Or what you'd like to be called)
How long you've been TTC (Trying to Conceive)
What you're trying (temping, RE, acupuncture, etc.)
Cycle (DPO/2WW, how many cycles, etc.)
State or Country
Pregnancy Test results (or when you plan to test)
Already Have Kids?

You may find a cycle buddy or a new friend who is in a similar place in her journey.

Baby dust to all of you!

Take care,
Olivia

Also, the past couple of months I've had a lot of pain on my left ovary during ovulation. It usually lasts more than 2 days. Is this normal? It really hurt my first month taking Femara.

Well I'm joining in a little late but here it is anyways

First Name: Heather How long you've been TTC: 4 months What you're trying: not much at this point just keeping track of cycles on calendar Cycle: about 11 dpo, reg 31 day cycles except last month was 36 State or Country: Wa Pregnancy Test results: test on 3/17 Already Have Kids? Not yet

The one thing I'm curious about is, I get a dull pain/ache around ovulation time (but only on right side) that lasts about 3 days. Is there anyway to tell between ovulation pain and cysts?

Hi Heather!

When is the last time you saw your ob/gyn? They should be able to do a quick ultrasound to determine if you have cysts. Please check in with the doc!

Heather922 replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
I don't have an ob/gyn, my doctor is family medicine but I'm assuming she could do an ultrasound too right? I haven't been in since my yearly in sept.

Thank you for the suggestion.
