Just a heads up about the ones that don't rupture (sorry for being Debbie Downer)...they can become cysts. When mine didn't respond to the trigger, I had to take the next month off and take BCP to make them go away. Hopefully this won't be an issue for you since you'll be
Do you HAVE to do a BCP cycle? What happens if you don't and you just let the cysts be cysty? I have a friend who was on Clomid and never had follicular ultrasounds, she was on it for 5 months I think. She never did a BCP cycle, also never knew if she had any cysts from Clomid/follies not rupturing. She does have PCOS though. Have another friend who developed a cyst for no apparent reason (not ttc or anything) and the doc told her she just had to wait for it to go away on its own. That wasn't an RE though, just a normal OBGYN. I don't want to take a month off -- we only have four tries to get a 2012 baby! Fingers crossed...

With us on earth for five short days, with us in our hearts forever.
