Hi Wray, I have been dealing with cysts since my early teens! When they first discovered a cyst I was 15 and they put me on birth control Lo- Oval 35 I believe! I took birth control for many years and have never really had a normal period, usually lasting 3 days until the last year where they have been around five days! I could not have children because the leutenizing hormone was not strong enough! That is ok at this point in my life as I am 45.
I recently had an ultra sound and after having my period for 2 weeks straight in which I had a hemorging cyst! So they put me on a progesterone birth control for two months and I am due for another ultra sound on the 12th of December! My question is am I candidate for using the cream on a daily bases considering that I have irregular periods and occasional cysts and twice ended up in the ER with excruciating pain for them to find nothing wrong but it could have been a cyst that errupted!!! I have also been having night sweats now for close to a year considering I am in the pre menapausal years.
