I found out about my first ovarian cyst last April due to some aching, but didn’t worry about it too much. Months later, I began feeling a worse ache in my lower left abdomen, which spread to my lower back. It got worse over time, and it made it hard to move around at school and work. Finally I saw a doctor about it and they told me I had ten ovarian cysts. It had only been two months since I had just one. The doctor gave me some medicine to take for pain, which helped a little but the pain grew worse and worse every month. It got to the point to where I would cry getting out of bed and moving around, and I was never able to get comfortable, so I lost a lot of sleep. I had to go to the emergency room because I was in intense pain after intercourse with my FI, and they told me I had about 20 cysts on my ovaries. I saw a specialist in January, and he told me that he thinks its the birth control that I’m on, which stopped my period. He put me on the pill along with my current birth control to try to balance out my hormones and make me have a period again. I’m supposed to take both for three months and then come back and see if they’re gone. Daily activities are becomming harder and harder and I constantly feel like my insides are falling out. I have no more medication besides what he gave me for nausea, and most over the counter stuff doesnt help. I’ve seen other women post about cysts on here and I was wondering if there is anything I can do to ease the pain besides just curl up with a heating pad and hope it goes away. I’m honestly desperate, please help me.
