I am 24 years old and have suffered with endometrious and ovarian cysts since I was 15 years old. I am on birth control which is supposed to help but I keep getting cysts. It seems every other month I experience a cyst. Normally I wait it out and hope it ruptures (which is extremely painful) because it is better than getting surgery. But less than two week after I experienced a cyst episode I felt another cyst rupture. I don't go to the doctor every time because they usually give me pain medication and tell me to "see what happens." I have a good gynecologist and am going in on Monday, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I have tried everything, I've had cysts removed, I've been on several different kinds of birth control, I've tried gRn hormone treatments (which was a nightmare), and I don't know what to do anymore. I was on pain medication for almost two years when I finally decided that just treating the pain wasn't going to work for me. I've been off pain medication for over six months and have no desire to go back on them. I don't want to seem like I'm complaining, but I don't know what to do anymore. When I get a cyst it stops me from living my life, even doing simple household chores are impossible. I just want my life back. I've done everything the doctors have suggested and more and I don't know what else is out there. I'm really scared if this continues I'll have to have a radical hysterectomy, my mother had one in her early thirties, and it has come up before but my husband and I want children at some point. I know that I'll have to have children sooner rather than later, but I feel like I'm on a clock and time is quickly running out for me. If anyone had any suggestion or knows of anything that bring relief for cysts I would appreciate it . I just don't know what to do anymore and I'm afraid I'm running out of options.
