Good morning ladies, I am debating on what to do as I just received word from planned parenthood that my pap and uterine biposy were all clear. My reasons for going to PP were as follows:
Bleeding heavily every two weeks or so after being regular all my life (large clots)
Bleeding very heavily after sex
Spotting with physical activity
Bloating terribly with some weight gain
Pain deep in lower left pelvis that brings me to tears, not constant thankfully
Similar discomfort radiates to underneath my left ribs in a dull ache which is constant
Shortness of breath
Complete change in bathroom habits, am using the pot several times a day, but always feel pressure as if I could stand to go again
Above mentioned pressure seems related to my bladder as well, I sit to pee and have to wait for anything to happen, no matter how badly I feel I have to go
I just dont feel "well"
I am 39 and on Illinois medicaid. I have an appt with my family dr March 18th and I would like to be tested for ovarian cancer at this point. The gyn through medicaid would not see me as I have little patient history (medical records). I have been very healthy and rarely saw the need to see a dr. Planned parenthood has done all they can for me at this point. She told me the CA125 is a waste of time, and to start bc pills as I am "just getting older" Which I can accept happily if that is the case. So what to I ask for at my next appt? I want to be taken seriously. I am a single mom to a 2 year old and a 12 year old, and I feel as if I am not at my best for them.
