Even though the cyst is still there, I have been ok'd to proceed with the cycle! The cyst has shrunk to 24mm (down from 29), and my estradiol is looking good, too.
This means I get to start the bravell* and menop*r on Saturday. I am *almost* looking forward to giving myself 3 shots a day. I'm sure it'll be a piece of cake in the grand scheme of things.
