Uh-Oh ****Trigger***

Posted by TherapyGirl on June 24, 2007, at 18:17:21

Some of you may remember my disastrous visit at the gynecologist in March.

Now I've spotted almost every day for the past two weeks, since my last period, and yesterday I started another whole period -- 17 days after starting the last one.

When this happened several years ago, I had two ovarian cysts on one of my ovaries. They watched it for about 5 months until they went away. There were lots of uncomfortable exams (pelvic exams and intravaginal ultrasounds) and a couple of uncomfortable weeks waiting for them to rule out ovarian cancer and several months of worrying about major abdominal surgery because they weren't going away fast enough. But the bottom line to all of it was that they didn't treat them and they ultimately went away.

So my question now is whether to even call my gynecologist about this. I know there's a possibility that it's not the same thing, but it's really hard to decide to put myself through all that again -- especially considering my traumatized reaction to the last pelvic exam. It also doesn't help that I'm still not feeling very connected to my T.

Advice, please?
