I have been taking these pills for just over 2 1/2 weeks. At first, it made my period very insignifigant, which is unusual for me, but after about a week, my cramping became extreme and has not let up. I have been bleeding mildly now for just over a week. I need this pill to try and shrink a very large cyst, but it is becoming such a neucance that I am considring just having them do what they need to do ( remove the cyst or ovary) because of these effects, not to mention the fact it increases my anxiety and panic disorder symptoms... Will these side effects go away eventually? My doc. barely speaks english, and hardly listens, so he just keeps telling me not to overreact and continue taking the pills.(Over the phone, I will not see him for another month) Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
