I am a 23 yr old student that has cycts for the past two years. Just a couple of months ago the Dr. told me that I had a complicated cysts which means that their are four small cysts in one. It was was a little larger than a golf ball. The Dr. put me on the pill but did not work for me, then he put me on the Depo Lupron shot for three months and that helped the pain but gave me menopuse symptoms, skin patches, hot flashes, mood swings and to top of loss of bone density. Last year they did a lyposcopic surgery to check the overies nut found endomitriosis on the cervix and lasered it off. Right know Iam on the Depo shot which I am not happy with because I got the pain back. Well emotionally and physially I've been really sad and tired of being sick. But I just want to tell you lady's that I am very happy that birth control helped for you. In my case nothing has helped so far but I am still fighting the battle. I just want to you that I am very happy for you and hoping that you never get these painful cysts. Just keep on praying that every thing will be okay, and I know God will not lets us down. Love Raquel.
