These are questions that only your doc can help you with since everyone reacts differently to each birth control. See or call your doc and get his help on this.

It sounds like they are definitely doing a number on your hormone levels. Either have your doctor check your hormone levels or have him try a new type of BC. I'm not sure if they work on endometriosis, but I know they are suppose to work on cysts. Good luck and take care!

I was given BCP's to treat and prevent ovarian cysts. I had lots of unpleasant symptoms the first month, but they all went away by the second month. Maybe you could ask for a different type of BCP.
