I agree that the estrogen could be too much for you, causing symptoms of estrogen dominance instead of hormonal balance. Maybe the doc could try BCPs instead of HRT? If you felt like going the "alternative" route (but still tell your doctor), you could try using some progesterone cream and possibly something called Vitex (chaste tree berry). A little pro. cream won't hurt you but could provide at least a little relief and balance. Again, though, I don't know that it will shrink your current cysts. I had a problem with small cysts, and the cream at least seemed to relieve some of the discomfort.
