Thank you for your reply. You mentioned having ovarian pains. I didn't mention that in my initial post, but I too have had ovarian pain and just dismissed it as possible ovulation pain (which I should've know better because the pain was so intense)It felt like my left one was going to burst! I truly hope that you're on the road to recovery. Why is this thing still on the market? I'm making my appt. today to have it removed. Take care and thanks again.
