Quoting Love = Moco and Bubba:" Banana's are supposed to help with period cramps. As for cysts, the only thing that has helped me is ... [snip!] ... birth control pills. Pain killers wouldn't even help with that pain. My sister gets cysts as well and she smokes weed for it :/"
Now that you mention it, when I eat Banana's more I do hurt less. Hmm. May have to up my intake.
I tried BC for years and it has never helped with the cysts. My doctor said it is the weirdest thing that they do not respond. I know at 16 they had to remove my left ovary because the cyst turned solid and wouldn't shrink. It was huge. I looked pregnant.
I've had one in my right ovary for almost 2yrs and I can just now see it poking up when I lay down.
Honestly, I have heard of a lot of women with endo who smoke pot to deal with the pain. I know it helps cancer patients cope too.
