Nuva Ring for cysts?

Just got back from my Dr's appt (took a week to get in there cause of scheduling) for pain in my left side and muscle pain in my lower abdomen. I had some sharp pains in the left side around my ovary and my stomach muscles felt like they did about 3 weeks post op. Muscles are still sore and after about 5 days of the sharp pain in the side its eased off some. Or at least it had until she started poking around. LOL

Anyway, she didn't feel any large masses, which is a good thing. We skipped the ultrasound cause endo or cyst at this point probably would not have shown up. She's thinking its a cyst causing pain cause she removed one from the right side when she did the hyst and I tend to get them.

I'm going to try the Nuva Ring starting tomorrow and hope it doesn't trigger headaches. Has anyone used this before for cysts and had it help? Any odd side effects you experienced?

Nuva Ring for cysts?


I will share what an endo specialist told me. He said that ovarian malfunction happens a lot in endo patients that do not have their ovaries removed at the time of their hysts. He said its just another phase of the endo. That my hormone levels are all over the place and that I am not ovulating normally which is causing a weird cycle, cysts, etc.

I have never tried the product you mention, but it is standard treatment to try a BCP / hormone of some sort to suppress ovulation and see if quieting the ovaries helps.

In my case it didn't and since the girls would not be quiet, they are being sent to their room (chemical menopause via Synarel). Depending on how that goes, they may very well be kicked out of the house for good.

Best wishes to you. Do keep us posted. The more we share the more it helps us all!

Nuva Ring for cysts?

Thanks Michelle. I've tried to avoid most hormones because I get migraines easily... was on Lupron and Danocrine in 90/91 and practically lived on percocet to deal with the migraines. Also tried Depot Provera in 98 (migraine for 3 weeks and out of work). The last one I tried was after my middle DD was born in 2001 and that was the low dose progesterone one and even that gave me headaches. Also a bunch of different bc pills in 89-90 before being diagnosed w/ endo and fibroids. The Doc is hoping since this is both estrogen and progesterone it won't trigger the migraines - she said most people that get migraines can use this. If this doesn't do any good she said we'd go for a lap and see what's going on. I'm turning 34 this year, so we're hoping to avoid taking my ovaries... I'm not prepared for menopause yet and I don't think my family is either. I already got a dose of that with the Lupron in 90 and it really was NOT pretty. LOL

I have to admit, in spite of the pain now its still MUCH better than it was before the hyst in Sept. Just frustrating to still be having pain issues more than anything. Some days I just get so tired of constantly having pain of one sort or another I just want to hide in bed all day. Something I'm sure most people here can relate to even if my family can't. Thanks for listening/reading and I will keep you all posted on how the Nuva ring goes.

If it weren't for the Zoloft, I'd be hiding in bed all day. I hear you. Its hard for anyone to understand what chronic pain does to our minds and sense of well being unless they have been thru it.

I'm 38. Most of the time I feel much better than I did when I was bleeding heavily at 34. However, the cyclical pain is intense and pushing me toward a decision that I really don't want to make.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.
