Is on hold for another week. Last week's ultrasound showed a follicle on one of my ovaries; in the IVF-verse, this is an obstacle. Perhaps because they want complete control of when I make eggs? The nurse who called to remind me to come in for the ultrasound told me that another week of BCP would treat my "cyst." 

Me: "What cyst? The doctor said it was a follicle."

Nurse: "Cyst, follicle...they look the same."

My interior monologue: " opt for the word with the negative health connotations? Awesome."

Another day, another diagnosis, another mysterious set of events unfolding in the unknowable vortex that is my uterus.
