I have just had my first appointment with the gynaecologist. I didn't get to see the doctor mentioned in my letter, he took another patient and I saw a woman doctor. I explained all my symptoms and she said it sounds like endometriosis but that I can't have the keyhole surgery due to it being risky coz of my weight. She said my hairy chin sounds like PCOS and will write to my doctor to advise that I be sent to a dietician as this will "help with my chin hair". I then had to swab myself there and then so I can be tested for STIs and I will be given a scan in around four weeks. I don't even know if the scan will show up.PCOS and endometriosis! I felt like she didn't think it was important for me to find out if I have either or these as I don't have a partner so therefore I'm not trying for a baby yet. the whole thing just upset me, maybe I'm just being oversensitive. She gave me a prescription for the mini pill too. Any advice anyone?
