Possible ovarian cyst rupture?

I've been going about my day today as normal, at college, when I got a sudden aching pain in my lower right abdomen. It's been here for about six hours now and hurts more when I move around. It's not unbearable but quite uncomfortable. I have a lot of cysts on both ovaries but I've never experienced a rupture - does this sound like one? If so, any ways to manage it? And if not, what else might this pain be? Thanks in advance! Kait x

Waxing facial hair...What type of wax brands do you use or recommend?
