I went on birth control on may 10th for a small cyst that the doctor felt. I had a pelvic exam 5 months prior to that and nothing was found so I wonder why my doctor suggested birth control . Maybe because I am always asking about
my ovulation pain and he felt it would help with that and hel p shrink the cyst faster. Well learning I had a cyst made me feel a little upset but I read and saw that many people develop them especially in their child bearing years and even some people have polycystic overies. So I felt better after reading that because I felt like it was probably normal and would be okay. Well I was real anxious about
the going on birth control after reading the side effects but felt like I had to so I did. I went on loestrin and only had headache the first two days and went through the whole pack with no problems. Well he prescribed a generic to start taking after I finished that pack since it would be cheaper and I looked it up and found there was no generic for loestrin yet so I dont know what glidess fe was a generic to. Well I took it for 4 days and from the start of taking it, I began to feel more anxious and had a real bad panic attack one day. I stopped taking it immediately. My panic attack started after I was feeling very anxious on the edge, like I felt like I was on the verge of a panic attack so I happen to check my blood pressure and it was elevated so it automatically freaked me out sending my blood pressure on up and sending me into an extreme panic attack. HEart beating way too fast, negative thoughts and feeling running over me. Feeling just like I am going to die. Like I need to get my butt to the hospital, you know but I have to tell myself I will be okay and I will make it through it even though I feel like I can't. Anyone else get like this? So I made an appointment with my ob gyn to go in tomorrow. I wanted to tell him about
how I did on both birth control and if I had to get back on them, then I want to get on the loestrin since I have no effects. I don't do good with hormones. I hope that maybe the cyst is gone, please pray for me and I pray that everything will be okay and he can give me some positive feedback to make me not worry so much. Like he did not tell me what type of cyst it was, he just said it was mushy like it should be and that was about
it. I was not expecting him to find a cyst so I was not prepared to ask those sorts of questions. I get nervous at the doctors and dentist so if I don't write it down I will be anxious and forget it. I would like to start exercising more and eating very healthy! I will begin trying to be more positive and reading positive and inspirational things to help me get throught this anxiety. It can be so hard and feel so alone and so sad sometimes because of it but I do have high hopes and things will be okay. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. And when I am having high anxiety and panic, I think so negative and start beleiving what I am thinking. Like for example, I will think oh no I have hypertension and it will stick with me and I wont be able to control it because I get too stressed. Something crazy like that when all other times I have normal blood pressure and even lower blood pressure at times. I am just like a hypercondriac. And I feel like I am losing my mind or like I just cant take it when I am panic and anxiety mode. It is a scary feeling but it does go away. CAn anyone relate. O yeah forgot to mention I turned 25 in april.
