I did post this on the TTC board where it belongs, but I have had so much more support from this particular board I hope you will not mind if I ask it here as well. Please note that this is about TTC ment.
I just got in from the doctor. My exploratory ultrasound (performed just to check me out) showed my lining was 4mm (which my doc said is normal) and everything looked okay. This u/s was done on Day 14 of my 32 day cycle. But he also mentioned it also showed a very small cyst on each ovary which my doctor said is nothing to worry about because they are only 1 cm and lots of women have these and they can shrink on their own or do nothing at all. Out of all the u/s I have had this is the first time this was mentioned.
I want to know what you all think of these cysts. I am so worried even through the doctor says they mean nothing to a future pregnancy and he's not worried about it. I also am wondering if my lining sounds normal so I can ttc. I know lots of you have been given numbers about lining thickness.
Please help me with whatever info or advice you have. I want to look forward to ttcing but I am so worried about this news even when he said not to.
PS- I am 26 years old with a history of 2 miscarriages but no other health issues.

I am pretty sure the concern would be if the uterine lining were still thick right after menstruation...As at that point, it should be very thin, not thick.
Your uterine lining has to grow enough prior to O in order to sustain a pregnancy...So, you want your lining to be thicker, not thinner..
If you were to O in a couple of days, your lining should thicken up a bit more...Will your doc be putting you on progesterone?? If you have not spoken about the use of progesterone 3 days after O, I would..
according to the doc I don't need progesterone because my lining was fine. But I know what you're saying and I have heard of it's benefits. I have an appt with an actual OBGYN next week instead of just my fam doc. I am going to ask him all these things you just told me about. I will also clearly remind him I was on cycle day 14 at the time of that reading.
Perhaps I will be stuck waiting one more cycle just incase.
