Trying to conceive

I recently had a dermoid cyst removed from my left ovary back in June... It was done via laparoscopy. I'm fully healed but my cycles are all over the map. I've started using ovulation strips to track my ovulation but I haven't had a positive yet. So my hubby and I decided to just try every 2 days since my period ended. Fingers crossed that this works.
Anyone else on the same boat?

Dermoid cysts are usually benign and are filled with oil/hair/nails/etc... Gross. You can be born with them (which is what my doc thinks since I've always had very regular normal periods etc) but for whatever reason it grew and it was never detected through myannual check ups until it grew to a point where I started having a lot of pain. I tthought it was ovulation pain but an ultrasound showed a cyst on both ovaries. They only removed the one on the left because it was very big. Size of an orange! You couldn't tell by looking at me since I'm fairly fit. If you're having abnormal pains I would suggest requesting an ultrasound to get it checked out. I'm in Canada and its covered under our health plan.
