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 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?
