Ruptured ovarian cyst: To do and what not to do?

Had pelvic pain, went to the ER. They told me that it was a result of "possibly a ruptured ovarian cyst." I felt strange the next day - my primacy care physician told me that this was normal and that the liquid needs to reabsorb into my body. I have some questions about your experiences with this.

Yep, Still Sucking Hard

As previously mentioned, my best pal has a really ugly case of ovarian cancer happening right now. The situation is terrible, the outlook grim. But I know how to make her laugh, which is one of my official jobs on Team Sick Friend. But I need more material! [more inside]

So my best friend has ovarian cancer. And she's a divorced mom with no family. All of the support is going to come from friends, and I'm the Friend Leader. I'm going to be asking a million questions about this, I bet, in the coming months, but here's where I'm starting: if I say anything sweet or sentimental to her, she's gonna give me a black eye. I need snarky, sarcastic humor & presents for one of the smartest cancer patients ever. [more inside]

I need more information about advocating for myself in the American Health Care system

So this was me commenting a bit ago about how some views toward health care actually damage the lives of real people. And now I need advice, because the situation has grown so far out of my control and I think I’ll go out of my mind with worry. [more inside]

I never want to find out I have three months to live.

How do you know when your "not feeling well" is an actual cause for concern? Two people I know have been diagnosed with cancer and then passed away very shortly afterwords after seemingly common/benign symptoms. [more inside]

Help me figure out a direction to go to figure out what's wrong with me?

Paging Dr. House. Medical mystery involving girly bits and hormonal madness lurks within. Probably SFW. [more inside]
