Taking birth control for two ovarian cysts, now I have terribly sharp back pain. Help! :/

Posted , 2 users are following.

My ovarian cyst journey started two years ago, I always took the symptoms as just really bad cramps, or maybe a possible pregnancy. I've been through three doctors, all of which have blown it off except this last one. Anyway, my first doctor prescribed birth control on my first visit, and pretty much told me I was a spoiled white girl seeking attention, my second doctor claimed they "didn't have my name in the records" on the day of my first ultrasound, and finally this last doctor has done something after months of agonizing pain. I've had four ultrasounds, two of them "disappeared", and on one I was falsely told one of my cysts was cancerous. My last doctor prescribed birth control last month right after my last menstrual. I was told to start taking it on the first day of my next menstrual. Well I took it earlier this morning and got tired so I took a nap, when I woke up I was having lower back pain right above my butt. It's very sharp and hurts pretty much any time unless I'm laying perfectly still or if I'm standing. And to make matters much worse, my period hasn't been normal yet, only spotting/very light. It's pink in color and definitely doesn't look normal. I'm not having any other symptoms that would lead to pregnancy but ovarian cysts are very tricky. I'm thinking maybe I should wait a few days to see if anything changes and if not then make an immediate Drs appt. Suggestions?

Thanks!
