Possile Large Ovarian Cyst- Worth Trip to ER?

Patient

Q: About 10 months ago, I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst after having my 2nd baby and returning to my 6 week checkup complaining of abdominal pain and tenderness. I was put on antibiotics and birth control pills to shrink it. The pain, which is only severe when pressure is applied to my pelvic region and abdomen, has come and gone since then but lately I have noticed my stomach beginning to bloat and a constant fullness in it. It also seems as if the ovaries themselves are always ache-y dull ache. Could it possible the cyst has grown very large and is it worth an ER visit because I have no insurance.
