I need some advice! I have a gyne appointment tomorrow at the hospital after 2 years of irregular bleeds, swollen absobmen, pain, painfil intercourse and messed up menses!

I think they are just going to do an internal which my GP has already done and said that my cervix was something beginning with p (I wasn't really listening as he had to get the receptionist into monitor as all his nurses had gone home and was a bit self conscious) I dont feel this is enough. Can I ask for an ultrasound as I feel it is maybe PCOS or something similar and have read these can only be diagnosed with an ultrasound?

Have any of you had a similar experiance?

  • Tell him you want to be checked for fibroids with an untrasound; it sounds nicer than demanding. Also have him check you for STDs. If your pap is abnormal, you'll want to get that taken care of before it gets worse. They will also do a biopsy of your uterus, which is quite painful; take pain meds before letting them do that. You may have already had your appointment..
