Oh man, I’m sorry you’re going through all of that! I’m not sure what the best advice to offer is, but I think a good rule of thumb is that if you’re not feeling comfortable with the medical care and attention that you’re receiving, then it is always best to get a second opinion, or to be more assertive with your doctor. Insist on following up, ask if it’s possible to be referred to a specialist etc. etc. Good luck with everything and I hope you get some answers soon!

@nhoh:  I agree with Jules. If you have any doubts it wouldn’t hurt to get a second opinion. Especially if she’s said there’s nothing more she can do. Good luck!

So sorry to hear your going through this, it doesn’t sound easy and pretty stressful! I’m with the PP’s, you aren’t feeling good about the care you are receiving and it can’t hurt to get a second, or even third opinion.

It’s your body, be sure you are receiving care from someone you are comfortable with…it will help to relieve some of the stress you are feeling, and I’m sure you could use less of it!

So sorry your going through this.  I honestly would go to an RE to get an second opinion.  REs arent’ just about getting you pregnant but also are specialist.  A RE is covered by insurance and since you have a problem w/ cysts, a RE will look into hormonal issues as well as physical issues. 

I happen to have fibroids as well as Ashmerman’s and the best decision my Gyn did for me was to send me to a RE.
