I Had One At One Point

I've had one ovarian cyst that I'm aware of. I found out I had it when I was 14 I think. My periods had stopped for nearly a year, and then came back non-stop for almost a month and my doctor was afraid I was anemic. So I went and had tests and scans done. I remember when I had the ultrasound the lady asked me if I was sexually active and when I said no she whispered, "You know, you can tell me. I won't tell your mom." That made me feel awkward like she thought I was lying. But anyways! She said I had a cyst on one of my ovaries and it's what was most likely disrupting things with my body. I saw a gynecologist who prescribed me birth control pills. After that my periods became more regular and I haven't worried too much about cysts.

Recently though, I lost my health insurance (I turned 18 dammit) and I can't afford my pills anymore. I've been having some horrible pains every month, that seem to only get worse. I dunno if it's just reeeeally bad cramps, but it's too a point where I can't move. No matter what I do I'm in immense pain and after hours of it I start sobbing. I have a high pain tolerance as well, so it takes a lot for me to sob over something like that. All I can do is wait til I get a job and get my birth control pills back.
