When i was younger i always had irregular periods and i went to a gyno when i was 18 after being on it for 7 months without stopping and the doctor said that it was because i was over weight and didn't have enough hormones. I listened because he was a doctor and he gave me birth control. It ran out in Nov 2005 and i didn't go back in and get a new prescription, i just didn't want to hear it was my weight. Well, i started in Dec 2005 and and it is a year and 6 months later and i was still on. I went to a new doctor and he did the something gave me birth control to stop it. Granted he took blood and said that we would find out why it was going on, and said it wasn't my hormones. He said that he would see what else it could be. He said that it could be Uterus cancer, among other things. It has been over 2 weeks since i seen him and he still hasnt setup any test. I am so tired of getting the run a round and i really want to know what is wrong with me.

  • KC If I am reading right it sounds that the DR said he would run tests but you haven't had them or they haven't been set up? If so I would call the DR's office, speak to his nurse, and find out what the status of your tests are. From my expirience the DR gives the orders to his nurse who sets everything up, not the DR. Good luck Cala

  • Thank you Mommy cat! I am going to google and see. yes, the Dr said that he would get test set up with specialist and nothing has happened. The office thinks i am crazy because i have called up every day for the last week. I have asked the nurses the reseptionist, and even left messages. I want to go to another DR, but he is the first one that knows there might be something wrong with me and just not doing anything about it.Thank you all for the advise i am looking in to it!

  • Hey, thanks for all the advice. I have another problem. My period came back while i am on birth control. I know that i will still have a period but it was supposed to stop for 3 weeks and i have only been on the pill for a week and 1/2. I dont know what to do, now the pill isnt working to stop the bleeding. I am really confused and scared.

  • KC I would call again next week, and if they do not return your call, then I would do as the other posters said and get another opinion. Have you asked friends, coworkers etc.. who they go to and if the DR listens to them? Cala

  • Thank you again. I have asked several people and they all have a DR but none of them actually like the DR's. I asked my mother in-law and she doesnt like hers either. So getting a Dr i was all on my own.
