Ovarian cyst, heavy bleeding, gastritis, weight gain

I have heavy bleeding, gastritis, and weight gain. I am on my 4th birth control pill (for ovarian cyst) - can't tolerate the nausea. I feel all the symtpoms are related because I had none of these symptoms 3 years ago. I am 34 with no children.

Hormone management is sometimes not sufficient to handle ovarian cysts and surgery is sometimes necessary. What there is to understand is that an ovarian cyst is an anatomical structure and it is not going away with any treatment that does not involve a knife, although in some cases the side-effects can be controlled with synthetic hormones. However, if synthetic hormones are the treatment and the knife is the cure, sometimes the treatment may be worse that the cure due to the side effects of synthetics.
