Good news: no more cyst!  I had my scan yesterday and the ultrasound tech was amazed that it went away within a month.  Apparently those birth control pills worked a little *too* well because she also spent 15 minutes just trying to find my ovary.  I ended up having to smash my hand over the area to try and get it to show up for her.  But she found it and the cyst is gone and all is right!

I get to start the letrozole next week and I'm excited.  I had it in my head that I would need surgery for the cyst to go away, so I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that I don't have to wait another month to get the ball rolling.  The only downside is my insurance doesn't cover fertility medication, so I'm basically looking at $300-400 for 10 days of pills and a vial of hcg to inject.  And another $200 for a scan to see whether I have enough viable eggs.  And other funds that I can't remember.  So basically between $700 and $1000.  All out of pocket.  UGH!  Birth control pill: covered 100%.  Want to have a baby but can't: ALL YOUR MONEY.
