    How long did you ovaries stay enlarged?

    I started IVF cycle on March 20th and today, two months later, my ovaries are still big and i have cysts of both sides. RE says no sex or exercise.
    When is the swelling going to go down?
    Thanks!

    I don't remember exactly, but it was a long time for me as well. I was very uncomfortable.

    I'm sorry to say it took 4-5 months for the bloating and tenderness to go completely away. I felt better after I went to the acupuncturist, honestly. I'm not sure if it was simply a matter of time passing or something the treatment did.

    Are you PG? If yes, it could be a while. Heck, mine were enlarged and painful until a few months after giving birth to my twins. Sooooo painful!
