I consider myself to know a fair share about infertility. Or, at least, I know a helluva lot more than the average Jane who is fertile. Not that that’s a high hurdle to leap, or anything.
But I keep reading about people who have cysts on their ovaries and the math boggles my mind. I have heard of people having 40 mm cysts. Now, I just got to Israel a few months ago and kind of suck at the whole metric system, but isn’t 40 mm also 4 cm? Aren’t ovaries usually the size of an almond? Doesn’t that mean that the cysts are bigger than the ovaries?
That must be horrific. If I’m grasping this correctly (which is always a shot in the dark with me) then those folks are really having a rough go of it.
