Hi i am 17, about a month ago i was having bad pain in my r-side. the doc thought it was my appendix but the test said it was ovary cyst. okay the pain eased off and wasn't as bad until about 3 days ago. I am able to tolerate pain. but this hurts. i was supposed to go get an ultrasound but i moved last week and i don't have any health insurance like i did before i moved. does anyone know what i should do.
Any idea when you might get your health insurance again? You really should get back to the doctor. Cysts can do a number of things - sometimes people have cysts and never know... others have chronic problems that require them to be removed. It's hard to say. I can tell you that I have had one rupture before and it was soooooo painful. I don't wish anyone to go through that. I am not trying to scare you, but it is important to get it looked at again - especially if it's bothering you. In the meantime, take some Ibuprofen or Aleve - that seemed to help my pain. Good luck - I really know how painful it can be!
Also - it really is important to have the ultrasound so they can confirm it's a cyst and not anything else.

ok when i was 16 i had a cyst on my ovary that was 13 cm was ok i went home they do cause pain and it is uncomfortable.. then one night i was babysitting and i was rushed into hospital it burst BUT it w as 25cm then and i was soooo lucky..... now i got one ovary and it is full of tiny little cysts that burst sometimes.. but nothing to worry about.. you will be fine... when you feel alot of pain so much that you cant move and you run a fever and there is alot of fluid and bloodd coming from your vagina then worry... usually they go on their own... i listed the danger signs for you so chill u will be ok
I had several cysts on my ovaries. My doctor said that it is normal. If they get too large they can cause discomfort as mine did. He put me on a mild birth control pill for three months. The pill actually shrunk them. You could call your doctor and ask him if the pill could help you. He should be able to give you a 2 or 3 month supply. My doctor did and i didn't have prescription costs.
I would look into a clinic in your area. Most cities have clinics you can go to based on your financial circumstances. I don't know if you have a parent/guardian, but if you call your local Department of Health, they should be able to hook you up with someone. Look in the local phonebook under health services...Good luck.
