Ok so my husband and I just decided to start trying to get pregnant this month, and I figured I should go to my doctor to ask if the fact that my cycles are long (40 days) is a problem, and also told her that I sometimes have pain in my left ovary. She sent me to have bloodwork done (was fine) and for an ultrasound which I had done this Wednesday.
Yesterday I suddenly experienced severe pain in my abdomen, the worst pain I have ever been in. I collapsed on the floor at work and my body went into shock (is what the paramedics told me later). An hour later I was fine again and the pain was gone! They put a rush on the results of the ultrasound and they showed a cyst of 4.5 cm on my left ovary. My doctor says the cyst ruptured yesterday and that this caused the pain.
She was very vague when I asked if this poses a problem with my fertility, she said it may or may not. I can't find any information online. I have some questions still, I wonder if the ruptured cyst could have damaged my ovary and whether it does affect fertility or not. Does anyone have any information/experience on/with this?
