So I've had what I'm assuming is a BC (my doc and all the nurses there don't seem to recognize the name and just keep referring to it simply as a cyst) for approx. a month now. I noticed the pain two weeks ago and went to my doc who prescribed Augmentin as a precaution, although by the time I visited she said it seemed to be going away. Two weeks out and I still have the cyst.
I got my period a week early, something my doc office told me is related to the antibiotics (I take the pill so that does make sense, I know antibiotics can mess with it). So basically, all the antibiotics did was make the cyst worse. Awesome. I was told to keep up with the regimen and keep an eye on it. This was Monday. It's now Friday and the cyst is ever present. Maybe a tiny bit smaller but harder and ever so slightly tender. I called my doc office again and they were so dismissive of me and my issue. I was given a second round of antibotics and told to continue with the compresses. I tried to explain that I didn't see how antibiotics could treat the cyst if it's not infected, but again I felt dismissed and not really listened to. I just want it gone. I can't do baths cuz I only have a shower so I've been doing compresses. I have a removable shower head so I've used that to aim hot water at the area. I'm so frustrated.
