I briefly looked at the reviews and no one has mentioned recurring ovarian cysts as a side effect, and it isn't mentioned as a known side effect but I assume it could cause it if you didn't have the problem before taking spironolactone.
Hi there- I just actually googled a connection between Spirono and cysts... I have been on spirono 100mg for about 4.5 years for acne and in the last year have developed cystic ovaries and cysts on my breast. I also believe it is due to spirono. Sad that... I have no conclusive proof, just a hunch, and I really dont want to quit taking the spirono for acne, but I do not believe it is worth the side effects.
Best of luck to you and sorry for the frustration your experiencing due to the cysts.
