Most Ovarian cysts are benign. Many go away on there own. I am not familiar with Prempro. If you are worried you can go with out. I have bad symptoms but because I have ovarian I have to live with them. You do get used to them over time. Great for your mother.
Thanks for your answer Alex. I am sorry to hear you have OC. I can't imagine how you must feel and to have bad menopause symptoms on top of that must be debilitating. I know that I can barely function with my symptoms. I suffered through 4 years of horrible menopause symptoms because I was scared of the side effects until I finally broke down and got on bioidenticals. My new doctor prescribed Prempro which is the synthetic version which can cause breast cancer, heart disease and a whole lot of other ugly things. I was hoping the doctor would adjust my bioidentical dosage, but instead wanted to switch me to synthetics. I am worried about OC with my family history. My Mom went through that ordeal and was very sick, but pulled through it. I pray that you and your family will do the same. It must be hard for them to know that you are sick. Thanks again for your reply. :)
OC is not so bad. I am the happiest I have ever been. Being on chemo takes some getting used to but I have been on it three years.Compared to chemo the menopause symptoms no longer bother me.
May be you can find a doctor who will prescribe the medication you want if you know the risks.
