I know exactly what you mean. I have an issue with extreme pain and super heavy periods when I do have a period. I haven't had one since May 1st though.

I would go but tell the Dr what's going on....you have your period but discuss what's going on and what you need. They might can diagnose you without the physical examination.

Call them and tell them. My doctor had me come in anyway. They may not get an accurate pap smear but s/he can still talk to you about PCOS stuff.

I never knew that that PCOS was so common, I was always under the assumption that it was rare disorder.

Slept poorly. Exhausted now.

At least I'm down to five dogs.

Thanks. I'll call and see what they say. I dont think they will give you birth control without a papsmear though.

It is very common. They estimate maybe even 5-10% of women have it. It is the most common cause of infertility.

I've been on birth control for over a year and have never had a papsmear, pelvic exam, nada. I was 17, not sure if that makes any difference.

That shouldn't mean you have to reschedule. They can even do internal all sorts when you're on your period, it's more about how YOU feel about it, and obviously what you're saying is its that bad, why wait... They've seen it all before. You can't have a smear on your period though.... At least I don't think it's recommended.

And I don't know about bc there, but here, you just need an appt, blood pressure taken, brief medical history chat and you're away!

As for pcos, a simple ultrasound scan is all it takes to diagnose it, never mind blood tests etc. I mean, that will look at hormone levels, but you don't need that to diagnose. They can even do an internal ultrasound when you're menstruating.

It is so bloody hard being a bloody woman!!!!! So many bloody things to think about. Men have no idea how easy they have it.

I hate smears. Like LOATHE them. It makes me feel horrid for ages, the sensation makes me want to crawl inside my own skin!!!!!! Violated isn't the word lol. Necessary evil though, and the only joy is knowing once its done its a few good years before you need to go back!!!

I know here, they'll give you 3 or 6 months (I forget how much) worth, and then to get more you have to go for a papsmear.
