So I finally had an appointment with a gynecologist, after waiting since January for this specific one because my mom has seen her and thought she was great. I was told:
I am not convinced your symptoms are gynacological
If the pill doesn't work for you for 3 months at a time just stop trying to take it for 3 months
The pharmacy is going to have such an issue with your prescription haha they are going to have to call me
Just take a Tylenol and an Advil at the same time they provide a baseline relief of pain
You should change your diet
You should just take cranberry pills for your bladder
Its totally fine you have cramping and spotting after sex
So you bleed for 5-7 days? No I bleed anywhere from 4 days to 3 weeks as i explained to you upon saying I have been having a "period" for the last 2 weeks...
Its totally normal that the ultrasound tech had to dig for your right ovary and that causing you some pretty decent pain is fine
*stops listening to me after I say I don't want an IUD*
*wont let me finish saying that Tylenol and Advil do NOTHING and have done nothing for years*
oh your uterus is free moving and you didn't complain when I examined you so there is nothing wrong
Yeah your ultrasound results were normal
*completely ignores the fact that I just heard a women in the next room get an IUD inserted crying out in pain*
And then i had to hang around and try and get my blood pressure back to normal before she would give me the new birth control prescription, it was almost 170 after talking to her
I was so upset I was almost tearing up in the office and burst into tears as soon as I got in my car. I did get a new birth control to try, which she supposedly designated for 2 months at a time and she gave me 20 painkillers. I will be treating those like gold.
I am still upset now and I honestly feel like my confidence is destroyed after that visit. I was treated like an overweight unhealthy uneducated pill seeking waste of her time. she seemed to even have a hard time making eye contact with me. And now I am left with alot of anxiety because it was a big joke that I might not even be able to get my prescription filled properly.
I am not looking for sympathy because I know there are women in worse positions who have had worse experiences. For me, this was honestly the worse experience I have had at a doctors, I am out of steam at the moment. I hope every single one of us finds someone who will listen and want to help xx.
