Two years ago I was diagnosed with endometriosis and had a laparoscopy to remove the cysts. I have since been on the Depo shot to control this problem. When I went back to the doctor (who was assigned to me in the hospital) one week later for my follow up, he did a pelvic exam and found nebothian cysts. Without explaining what he was doing or the problem he found or asking my permission, he immediately got a needle and drained the cysts. This experience was a bit traumatic because I hate needles. All the info I have found states that these nabothian cysts do no harm and rarely need to be treated/removed. The only treatment I did find included burning or freezing, but my dr just drained them with a needle. My problem is that intercourse has been painful ever since. The pain is in the vaginal canal and feels kind of like burning or irritation like I am too dry when I'm not. I don't know if this is due to the endometriosis, nabothian cysts, or the birth control. I'm afraid the dr would just tell me I'm not a dr and I don't know what I'm talking about. If anyone has any suggestions, please share. I'm only 25, and the thought of never enjoying sex anymore is scary!
