Cysts from medicine??? If you have experience, please comment.

Could my cramps have been cysts? I actually do not think I'm pregnant at all now, and am wondering if what I was experiencing was a cyst? I only had one once before that I know of, and I can't remember what the symptoms were.
I have never had cysts on natural cycles, but if I understand correctly, meds can cause them, and I've been on meds for months, so wondering if maybe my symptoms are cysts. Has anyone had these where they cause lots of cramping 7DPO or so???
I know I need to just relax and I am going to, promise - just trying to figure it out, so in future cycles I know what to expect. I will be in the looney bin if I keep going through this. It's insane.
the bin is waiting for you! just teasing. If it helps...this BFP I had a cyst (seperate from the corpus luteum) and I didn't get any cramping from it. I also had a cyst in the stim stage of one of my last IVF cycles and no cramping from it.
btw...if you had a cyst it would have been noted in yesterday's u/s.
I started stims for an IVF cycle. RE didn't know I had a cyst until I was about half way through the stims. He decided to move forward with it because I had so many follicles. I think I had 13, but he only retrieved 9 because he didn't want to go near the cyst.
I rarely got cramps from the cysts or the endo which I supposedly have (or had?)...
I'm ready to jump out the window. I want to know what the heck is going on. I think it's the crinone, and if negative, I'm never taking that stuff again. Lucy - I hope you are having an ok time with this, I'm insane! I guess it's not a cyst, but what the hell. I'm on the verge of tears. Thanks for the input, it definitely helps. You guys rock.
horrible because you never know if it is progesterone or actual implantation. All we can do is to pray and hope for the best. i am seriously working hard at work to keep myself busy. plus my back hurts from P4 shots.
Why didn't they give me this or Estrace from the beginning?

I am not really understanding that. They have previous cycle BW. Dont need a real answer, just don't get it. Hard to stay away from windows in NYC!!!!! I am seriously going mental at work here, want to cry. Ok, vent over. If it's going to be negative, I really wish I didn't have those cramps! Horrible. Ok, now over.
Always had cramping around that time, whether pos or neg

I believe it is the progesterone doing its job, converting the lining fully from TL to HH pattern. Once lining has converted the cramping stops, only to come back toward the very end, feeling heavy and bloated. For me the sensations are exactly the same whether the beta is + or -
I never felt this on natural cycles, only ones with supplemental progesterone. I wouldn't necessarily blame the crinone, it may be the same with PIO or suppositories too. The good news is that you DO convert from TL to HH and now you have proof.
