@OzToCaBride:  I am sorry you are going through this. I would not be in pain for another 3 months! You may have to get aggressive with the doctor about your care.Tell him you will not wait. Write a letter of complaint to his manager/ hospital and express your concerns, let them know you are in extreme pain that causes you to miss work and you are not pleased with his lack of concern. This is grounds for FMLA so you don’t get fired from your job for missed days. You may have to be a bull dog but who gives a crap about being nice when its your health thats at stake. You can PM me if you need help. I’m good at things like that.

@OzToCaBride:  Do not let him shut you down. Tell him you will not take no for an answer. Tell him waiting another 3 months is not an option. Ask him what are the other options. Good luck.

Can you just bypass the GP and go on your own to see a gynecologist?  If a gyn won’t see you without a referral, do you have something similar to planned parenthood there?  In the states they provide gynecological care, but I’m not sure how it works in Oz.  =o/  I’d try to circumvent the system if you can and see a specialist asap.  Good luck!!!

Kind of scary to just throw you on some pills- espcially if no blood work has been drawn to check the hormone level balance, etc – so pills could be hurting instead of helping, like you are feeling.

I hope you get the relief and knowledge you need to get this under control for your own sanity and well being!

Sounds like the potential for an ovarian cyst?

What are the symptoms?

Most functional ovarian cysts do not cause symptoms. The larger the cyst is, the more likely it is to cause symptoms. Symptoms can include:

  • Pain or aching in your lower belly, usually when you are in the middle of your menstrual cycle.
  • A delay in the start of your menstrual period.
  • Vaginal bleeding when you are not having your period.

Some functional ovarian cysts can twist or break open (rupture) and bleed. Symptoms include:

  • Sudden, severe pain, often with nausea and vomiting.
  • Pain during or after sex.
