I have a tough decision to make. My periods for the past year have been very heavy and painful. Things got progressively worse in June. It started out as a late period in June. Then I got 2 periods in July, 2 in August. One of which lasted close to 30 days. Then had another one 3 days after that ended.

The ultrasound showed a 3 cm cyst on the right ovary. I have tried provera a couple times in the past 4 monts to stop periods. I have been getting bad headaches from it. My dr gave me two options.

1. Have a Mirena IUD put in.
2. Have surgery to remove the cyst and hope it gets better. We don't know if the cyst is causing these problems. (makes me wonder if they are)

Having an Mirena IUD put in, kind of freaks me out. I never been sexually active. I have no clue what to expect, I was told it will hurt. And I could bleed for the next 5-6 months. Not sure I can handle that. I just got done with a 30 day period.

I am leaning towards removing the cyst and the dr will do it, if I ask. The problem is that she is not sure it is causing it. She thinks that the IUD will possibly shrink it.

can the IUD help with cysts? Is it painful to get it put in when I have never been sexually active.

Any help would be great.
