Update....30 days ago I had my cyst drained. Well here I lay on the couch again in pain as I had to have it drained again!!!!! I am avoiding another removal because I'm afraid of the amount of tissue they will need to remove. My doctor and I have been talking and I think I made try hormonal remedies such as some sort of birth control. That way I can avoid my hormones from swing up and down. Has anyone else tried this or does anyone currently take birth control?
I've had mine for 10 years (24 now). For 2 of those years nothing happened. But then it flared up with the help of my mom who's a retired nurse! It drained and all of that. No flare up for a year (taking b.c.) then I stopped taking it that's when it came back! It flared so bad while I was at work my boss sent me to the hospital! Had it lanced off work for 2 weeks (I so loved the break cause I still got paid) no flare up until 6 months later! And it's so bad now mine is constantly draining so I am forced to wear a pad (which doesn't help my depression or my marriage). I'm always having to lay down. I tried working out but the pain was so unbearable! I keep it clean. I went to the hospital 6 months ago to find out that it got infected. I've tried everything to help me but I think it has some thing to do with hormone imbalance!
