Hi ladies. I have a cyst and it has caused me to have breakthrough bleeding this last week. I went to the doctor this morning and she prescribed birth control pills to get rid of the cyst. From what I've read birth control pills only prevent new cyst from forming, but won't make existing cysts disappear. I'm hesitant to take birth control pills because they have always been really hard on my body physically and emotionally. I'm already dealing with so many things, infertility and my dad has stage IV cancer. I'm afraid the pills would send me over the edge.
Has anyone else had a cyst and been prescribed birth control pills? Did it help? I'll do whatever I can to give me the best chance at getting pregnant and for my health. I've lost one ovary due to a history of cysts.
Thanks for any feedback!
