I just wanted to know if anyone else has this problem and what they are doing about it..... I'm 23 and active (you know what I mean), I used to take ortho-tri-cyclen and than I took ortho-tri-cyclen low, because apprently my blood pressure is affected my estrogen, it makes my blood pressure dangerously high, almost deadly and I was actually hospitalized for it. So, I had to stop take any pill that had estrogen. My Obgyn put me on a POP which stands for Progestorin only pill, (hope thats how you spell it) but now I'm starting to get very painful cysts. I've been a realtionship for almost 3 years and there is no way we can go back to condoms. And I'm way too young for kids.... Anyone else have this problem? What are you using as a form of protection against pregnancy?
