A few months ago I was diagnosed with an inch long cyst in my left ovary. This was done at the emergency room, and they said that it wasn't oddly shaped or anything. The reason I had gone to the emergency room was because I had been in extreme pain and having tons of trouble with my period. I've been on yaz for about 7 months - my doctor advised me to kind of wait it out and be patient with yaz because it could take a while to fully get in my system and start working. After 7 months, I'm still having the same problems that I was before hand. 2 week long periods, very very heavy flow, and extreme pain. My period has become debilitating. I have been trying to get an appointment with my doctor, but she is extremely hard to get a hold of. I'm starting to realize that she is unreliable and am looking for a new doctor, but I'm sure you all know how that goes. I haven't even been able to see her since my ER visit when I found out about the cyst. I'm sure the cyst has something to do with the symptoms I'm having, but again, I haven't spoken to my doctor so I'm not sure of that.
Anyway, my questions are: What kind of treatment have any of you had for a cyst that size or similar? Is it safe to stop taking Yaz cold turkey, or is this something I should wean off of?
