I am new to this forum site, or any forum site for that matter so I hope I am using it right! I am hoping to get some feedback or support about some of the issues I am having.... I struggle to openly discuss personal issues and feelings in depth in person so I thought I would try this method. I am 23 years old and around 10 months or more ago I started to get increased ovulation & period pain, heavy periods etc. I ahd always had bad pains but they seemed more intense... Around 6 months ago I finally went to my doctor and after waiting a month to see a gyno and numerous scans, internals etc it showed I had a 4.5cm lump on my ovary - the gyno advised they wanted to go in keyhole and have a look but wanted to do one more ultrasound before they booked it in - and my ultrasound came back that the lump had gone but there was a medium sized one on the other size, it also showed signs of polycystic ovaries and my gyno decided that he wanted me to try levlen ed for 3 months and we would re-assess the pains etc after that time - if nothing had changed by that time he would go in via keyhole and look to see what other issues there may be such as endometriosis.. Now my issue since then I am almost one month into my 3 month course of the pill and I was prescribed levlen ed, since starting it my mid month pains and aches haven't changed all that much and are still quite painful but I am very very down and feeling "numb" or anxious , I am a generally happy go lucky person and it's having a real effect on me - my husband has even woken me twice in the past 2 weeks hysterically crying in my sleep. I don't know whether to keep going and it might just take some time to straighten me out or should I tru go back to the gyno ASAP? Has anyone had similar experiences?
