I have cysts on my fallopian tubes and PCOS and would have mild ovarian pain every once in a while. My Gyno put me on Sprintec to get rid of the symptoms of PCOS and to bring on a regular period and get rid of the cysts. I am nearing the end of the first month, but upon starting the birth control I have had severe ovarian pain. Very sharp pain where I have to bend over to ride out the pain.. Is this normal? Is it maybe the medicine doing it's job, getting rid of the cysts? I don't have many of the side effects of sprintec except maybe mood swings and a little depression sometimes, but nothing major... other than the pain.
