I do not know a lot about this but look up cystic does. Have you seen her hunch when the buck did the deeds? When i have seen people asking about does not settling... the frequent quick cycling is almost always in the picture when people start talking about them being cystic and trying that protocol. Does she get a good loose mineral, copper as needed, BoSe, not overweight.....

she's perfectly fine health wise like I'd even say a bit of a chunk but not too much, every time a buck got her she would hunch and they would thrust

My second doe I ever bought was like that. Tried for two seasons then sold as a pet. Vet here said they wouldn’t treat for cystic as they didn’t have enough experience. But she could of been sterile too. I tried the antibiotic flush with no change. She cycled normally though.

It would be a good idea to contact your vet and see what course of action they would take with a cystic doe, since there are different types.

Someone here might be able to share their protocol, too.

Sounds like cystic ovaries. Being a little chunk can be an issue as well. Hormones are a funny thing. Many give 2 shots of cystorelin..1 shot as soon as you see her take with the buck and the second 24 hours later. Im betting there is a thread on here about this. I beleive Little Bits shares ? Bit if you do a search on here..you will find it.

Yep that's what I did with mine. It took two treatments that year and finally got her to settle. The next year though she pulled the same crap. Since the bottle was $60 and Didn't have a super long shelf life I filled her instead of taking the chance of having to buy a bottle a year to get her to settle.
But she was also short cycling, it's been awhile but I want to say it was every 2 weeks she was cycling. Since I don't really have a goat vet I had to do my own looking into the issue and short cycling is usually caused by being cystic
