I’m sorry about your health problems.  Is there any way that you could go somewhere else that would have a reduced cost for you because you don’t have insurance?  They really do need to check you out because ruptured ovarian cysts can cause infections and other problems.  I wouldn’t worry about fertility yet either, cysts are usually individual follicles rupturing, not your entire ovary.

Go to the hospital and get charity care. Its for people who dont have health insurance they cover exams and anything you need to do. My bro wasn’t working and went their and got all the test he needed when he was hurt.

It wouldn’t hurt to check especially when it has to do with your health. Goodluck!!

I hope you can find somewhere to go.  I would also consider talking to a hospital to say that you still can’t afford $2,000 in care.  You might want to consider just going to the ER because you may have other cysts that need to be taken care of.  Then afterward talk to them about the bill since you don’t have insurance.

There should be some kind of assistance available for you. Check with your local hospital. Good luck and sorry that you are feeling so bad.

Oh and you could also check with your county health department. If they can’t help you they should be able to tell you who can.

Also, don’t worry yourself too much about infertility until you know things for sure.  It’s great to be able to find anything at the click of a mouse but sometimes it causes unnecessary worry (I know I do it too!).  I was thinking that you were still in a bit of pain from the cysts but since you aren’t, it probably isn’t worth going to the ER right now.

I don’t have any advice or you but cysts are serious issues! Can you call a doctors office and talk to them–see what options THEY are aware of? The cysts you have can be injected with solutions to suck the fluid out of them versus an invasive removal surgery (which is much more expensive)

I ended up in the hospital after a cyst burst on me 2 years ago. I didn’t have a job at the time, so charity care paid for the $6k bill to cover a CT scan – they thought my appendix had burst. Now my periods are unbearable – I have a feeling another one is getting ready to go. Hope you’re able to find the help you need!

I would like to chime in here and say that I had ovarian cysts about 4 to 5 years ago. After numerous dr’s visits and trying various things, the culprit was birth control. I have been off birth control for almost 4 years and haven’t had a cyst in about 3.5 years. Once the birth control worked it’s way out of my system I was golden. The Dr. tried various BC brands gradually decreasing until I was on the lowest form available but I kept getting cysts until I got off of them altogether. If you read the fine print on the BC packaging, ovarian cysts can be a side affect =(
