Need some input. Possibly TMI.. adult content

I'm 35, and had a tubal in 2005. Periods are wonky since then, and I've gone as long as 6 months with no period, but not pregnant. This time, it's been going on 4 months, but I FEEL pregnant: Nausea, cravings, fatigue, etc. The usual symptoms. My problem though, is that even when I have no period, I still have these symptoms to a lesser degree. I call my missed periods "Phantom Periods"; because I still get the swollen boobs, cramps, etc.

This time though, I've gotten the excess mucous, like when you ovulate, 3 times. Each time was about 3 weeks apart. After about a week it goes away, then back to normal. I've been to a doctor, and was diagnosed with ovarian cysts. Mine are about the size of grapes at times, but the smaller ones burst sometimes. Yes, I can feel it when they do. (HURTS!) They keep coming back, & docs won't remove them. I don't want to waste money on preg. test yet, just want some input. Anyone else have this?

  • I don't have any cyst either, if you don't want to waste too much money yet I would just go to the Dollar store they actually have dollar pregnancy test. I know a lot of ladies have taken them and the work. Good luck.

  • I had cysts, but they went away on their own. Don't know how that happened. The only thing I can tell you is to take a test. I am sorry you had to go through the tubal. My mom had to deal with that when we were younger, and it was really hard on her. Good luck.

  • Do you have a dollar tree store? They are only a dollar there. They work fine.
