I used to chat on cafemom, but I don't have time to chat much anymore.

Welcome to the board!

Cysts stink. I had my first one (that I know of) a few months ago, and went to the ER because it hurt in the same place where my appendix is (my dad and sister both had theirs rupture, and that's just scary).

I used Ortho Tri Cyclen (the normal stuff), and did fine with it. I've heard really good things about Seasonique. Have you talked to your OB about an IUD?

There's also a Birth Control board here: http://forums.ivillage.com/ivillage/?category.id=iv-bhcontracept

doctor's office prescribed me Jolessa (generic for seasonale) because it's less expensive than seasonique.

Please let me know what works or worked for you.

I thought you (iVillage.com) would like to know that I'm not bothering to waste my time at your website anymore.

I'm sorry to see you leave. I would like to know what happened and see if there's anything I can do. I know the Birth Control board currently doesn't have a CL, but we're working on that.
