I was diagnosed with ovarian endometriomas (cysts) about 3 years ago. This is not be to be confused with endometrosis. Instead I have the cysts on my ovaries because my OBGYN told me I'm pretty much having my peroid inside my ovaries, therefore causing the "ovarian endometriomas". I was put on Yasmine and Metformin. I stopped taking the Metformin about a year ago because I couldn't handle the side-effects of it (which my OBGYN gave me permission to do so). So far the running diagnosis is PCOS since I used to be about 70 pounds overweight and now I'm about 100 pounds overweight and I barely got my period each month. 3 days tops and it was very light. Now, I have been on the Yasmine (a very low dose of estrogen) for about 3 years and recently I have been having what I call "breakthrough bleeding" exactly halfway through my packet of pills. I have been under a tremendous amount of stress with my job and I am constantly falling behind in my pill schedule by a couple of days, but never more than two days. I only see it in my urine or when I clean up and it's either brown colored or red. Could this be because of obesity, stress and lack of pill schedule? My yearly is in 3 months and I'm a little concerned. Has anyone else had this experience? Thanks for sharing. I apologize for getting a little too descriptive, but I need to know.
