I'm 28 years old, 3 years ago I had an ovarian torsion (twisted ovary) due to a monster 4in ovarian cyst. I lost my left ovary, but now the Gyn says I have a 2.5" cyst on my right ovary. She put me on Junel Fe 1/20 eight months ago and I really don't know that I want to stay on it but I don't know if I have a choice. I feel emotionally devoid ... a lack of interest; I don't have an opinion about anything. In the morning, almost every morning, I have a swift mood change where I feel incredibly sad and cry for a few minutes for no reason but then the feeling is gone. My boyfriend and I have not had intercourse in 8-9 months primarily because I just feel nothing down there (despite trying). "Down there" I'm incredibly dry and its starting to get where its uncomfortable to wipe when I pee due to it being so dry. I haven't had a period in 8 months...and I don't know if that is a good thing. These side effects are not .... the end of the world but I would like to have sex in my future. How are you coping with ovarian cysts? Is hormonal birth control my only option to keep it from exploding my ovary? If I stop taking it, do I risk blowing my only ovary? My gyn...(the only one my health care covers) told me I could try a sex therapist...but I feel like that just...isn't the cause of the problems. Thoughts?
