i got it in november. i did some research on it, but couldnt find much, only good things on it. and decided that since pills completely screw me up, besides the fact that i cant always remember to take them, that it would be a good choice. now im not so sure. nothing i read earlier said anything about side effects like this. i found something yesterday that said that cyst were common with it. well i already had one anyway. im wondering if maybe the iud made it worse or made more or exactly what is going on. i just wish that i could go to the dr sooner. its hard to take care of my kids when i feel this way.
