Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Ovarian Cysts

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An indi vidual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

[posted 10/17/1999]
Question: I began taking triphasil-28 for the treatment of large ovarian cysts in January 1999 after three months on Mircette (which resulted in five weeks of bleeding and abnormal discharge). I began having depression/mood swings and noted that it was usually around the time that I started taking the white pills (a week after my period). Is this normal or is there another pill that may have less side effects? I also still have a great deal of pain in my right ovary and my gynecologist could feel a cyst at my last exam (September 1999). Is there a more effective pill for the treatment of cysts?

Answer: This is probably due to the variation between the estrogen and progesterone levels. This may change if your gyn would change to a pill with a different formulation. He/she is trying to keep your ovaries from cycling and this takes a higher dosage of estrogen/progesterone than just the birth control aspect. I know of no other treatments.
