I think the reason your mother may be against it now is because it wasn't her idea to have you go on it for a medical problem. For example, when I started my period, mine was all 'Oh, you're going to be put on it now, I'm going to call the gynecologist and get you an appointment.' Then, four or five years later I still wasn't on it and needed to be, and it took me awhile to convince her to let me go - because it wasn't her idea.
I definitely recommend going on it; it really does help with cramps, and may help your cysts. I think I may have had a burst one at one point; if I hadn't been on the pill I probably would've been worse off because of the pain. O_o
To be honest, your regular doctor didn't see the kind of pain you were in and doesn't have a first-hand experience of what you went through. I mean, he's a guy. >_> In all seriousness though, you may want to consider seeing a gynecologist and having them look at the files as well and get their opinion, especially if your regular doctor doesn't have the specified training.
High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life. Fight fear for the selfish pain;
It was worth it every time. Hold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this ends.
A clock ticks 'til it breaks your glass and I drown in you again,
'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need. Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why!
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy? If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
