HELP! i went to see a doctor the other day because my consultant asked me to make an appointment to check up on my 'general health' and when i got there the doctor had no idea why i was there and to be honest neither did i, she took no tests didnt check my blood pressure, ask how i was feeling or anything really, just ready through notes on the computer, to which i found out mu consultant had said i had ALREADY agreed to the radioactive treatment for my thyroid, which i definitely HAVE NOT, yet!
the topic of conversation moved to pregnancy as she asked about my ovary and periods (i had one of my ovaries removed at christmas with a tumour)
i had said i had missed a period and there was a possibility i could be pregnant, and she actually shouted at me and said 'you do not want to ruin your life with a no legg'ed baby, do not become pregnant on this medication'
And she further explained not to become pregnant as my baby would be deformed..
Nobody has ever told me this before, all the consultants i have had have full knowledge that i am sexually active and not taking any prescription contraception, and not mentioned it as ive got older!
She told me then i have to go about getting a pregnancy friendly medication and that if i am planning pregnancy i need to go to pre-pregnancy counselling or something?
I just need some advice on how to go about it! As i was really shocked and panicing a little to my partner to ask anymore questions or where to go!
Someone help please!
