Hello, My name is Michele and I am a 35 year old female suffering from fibroids and cysts. I recently started on the Depo-prevera birth control for the reason of minimizing my risks of my body creating more cysts. I have since realized that maybe taking this shot was not the best things for my physical being. In February I had an HSV-2 outbreak that I had not had in "literally" 15 years. That immediately was a concern...although I was very stressed during that time and exhausted. Since then I have seen my "General Well being" taking a turn for the worst. Now, I just went to the ER because I have been having reoccuring UTI's and now while on Antiobiotics to remedy the bacterial infection I have gained swollen lymph nodes (neck area) and a Yeast Infection it appears. When I went to the doctor they did an ultrasound of my Stomach, Gallbladder, Appendix and Liver and found nothing of concern. At the time I didn't have the EXTREME sharp stabbing and also dull aching pain in my ovaries. I do have (1) complex cyst that I am aware of and going up for a f/u being that my overall well being has been bad and getting worse. I also suffer from IBS and Gastritis...and what could very well be CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) but I don't want to "self diagnose". Just seems like my energy has been totally depleted. I did go to the gym and immediately after I ate quickly a medium size health meal but felt naseau and almost fainted because I got very pale and my blood pressure went down so quickly it felt like. I am totally bewildered by this autoimmune attack on my body! I am now finishing off my antiobiotic cycle and also bought Probiotics. I can still function but a a low level and with naps inbetween. I also have Hypothyroidism although my TSH levels are within range for the dosage of medication I am taking. Their is no history of Ovarian Cancer in my family but me having HSV-2 and a "moderately complex" cyst with internal echos and everything I am explaining to you here with my immune system so depleted is concerning me. I did do a blood test and everything was perfect. Naturally, I don't want to be a negative but I also have a history of a low grade malignant fibrosarcoma of the right femur. Although it was locally aggressive and low grade...I still have a history and my father passed away at age 75 from pancreatic cancer and a few of his brothers and sisters as well. Okay, now you know my whole his history. Any suggestions? The last time I checked out my cyst it was in 12/2007 and a pap smear and it seemed everything was A OK outside of the complex cyst that they were monitoring...I have to go back in 2 weeks for a f/u transvaginal/pelvic ultrasound. Naturally, I am worried like anyone would be...any suggestions? Any feedback in reference to my question would "greatly" appreciated!
