The bleeding has been heavy for me, with a lot of clotting. It has also not been what I would call normal menstrual bleeding. Any thoughts? I don't have insurance and don't want to run to the doctors when there is no reason.. Please help .. thanks Tory
Hey, I'm sorry for your pain and issues, Tory. That sucks! First off, did they do any exams or testing when you went to the ER?! They should've done an ultrasound if they thought you had ovarian cysts! To rule out things, etc. I would go back to the Dr and ask that you get an ultrasound done, to see what's going on and if a cyst possibly ruptured?! I'm no expert at all but that is what I would do. Even though you don't have insurance...at least call your Dr's office and tell them your dilemma and see what they say; I'm sure they can work something out with you not having insurance. I'd hope so, your health is important!! Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.
