I agree, find a new OB that you mesh well with.

It really depends on what type of cysts they are.

When I went off birthcontrol, we discovered that I had (luteum) ovarian cysts that would form after ovulation every month. Birthcontrol typically supresses these cysts (since you’re not ovulating), and is the only method of treatment, unfortunately.

Basically when I get them, they feel like soreness on one side of my abdomen. Occasionally they burst and it is incredibly painful and awful 🙁

They in no way effected my ability to have kids (I got pregnant NTNP with my DD, and on the first try with this pregnancy).

Unfortuntately there is very little you can do if these are the types of cysts you have. I have tried to figure out alternative treatments but have found nothing that works. I suspect being on birthcontrol for so many years (7 straight) is what caused this problem to begin with. I refuse to go back on birthcontrol.

I’m sorry you’re experiencing this. they’re awful!
