Gyne appointment

Hi everyone

Well another wasted gyne dr appointment. I’d been referred by another dr for a coil to be fitted. I turned up and there were 5 people in a tiny room. The dr starts to explain about the coil the same pros/cons convo that I’ve heard before. I stopped him mid flow. I told him I’ve not had a period since July. I don’t have heavy periods so how will a coil help my pain???? He was so rude. He continued to speak over me and explain what endometriosis was!!! Please don’t tell me about a condition I’ve have had over 30 yrs plus. Oh well he said. Let us know if you change your mind. 😢😢

They just fob you off don’t they sometimes I’m currently on a waiting list for another referral I. Have been told it’s 18 weeks crazy amount of time!

Did the doctor offer you anything else? Xx

No nothing. They have fobbed me off for years now. I’m 50 and have been taking HRT for 1 year. Feel so much better for it. Pain was worse at the beginning as I was still having regular periods. Now they are reducing thankgod. I’m guessing because of the lower amount of hormones

I am glad they are reducing for you and think it’s awful you had to wait such a long long time xx
