Advice & Tips: Ovarian cysts still there, have had one rupture since being on this medication. Not sure exactly how well it is controlling them, although it did resolve the amenhorrea and my hormones in general feel more stabilized. Having irregular bleeding and spotting throughout cycles. Has improved the acne and facial problems, less oil production, less irritation and pimples. Unwanted body and facial hair lighter, grows slower, easier to manage. Main side effects I notice are: less energy, some irritability, stomach bloating, a little weight gain and having to urinate more frequently. For how much this condition affects me though I'm willing to deal with the side effects.
Side effects: irritability, abdominal bloating, fatigue, pressure headaches
