I would either call and tell her you want an appointment now, or find a new doctor. If you have been in pain for a few weeks you should get it checked out.

WAIT A YEAR?!?! Yikes.. Get a new doctor, or at least a second opinion. That doesn’t seem right at all.

Perhaps there was some miscommunication with all the back and forth between you, the nurse and the doc. (Doc was in surgery, maybe distracted, busy, etc??? And/or the nurse just didn’t quite get it? Or wasn’t paying attention??) Call back again, and re-iterate that you’d really, REALLY like to speak with the doctor directly, as soon as her sched allows. Tomorrow morning, lunch at the latest? Persist, persist, persist, and go over everything again, including how long you’ve been going through all this. If the doc STILL then gives you a “meh” response, get a new gyno. Good luck!

ETA: Maybe, for whatever reason, they didn’t realize your next appt was so far off? Worth double checking.

Definitely go somewhere else where they’ll actually book you in for an appointment ASAP. That is not okay.

I would either find another doctor or I would call first thing tomorrow morning and say that you have concerns and are calling to schedule an appointment.  Sometimes you have to be really direct with what your goals are (i.e. get an appointment now).  I hope everything works out!

@SweetRose2011: You seriously sound like you had the EXACT same thing I had. Which was an allergy to tampons which led to an infection and Pelvic Flammatory Disease. Seriously, get to a different clinic right away. The pain is clearly not normal and if it is something serious, then waiting longer can prevent more problems down the road.

This definitely sounds like there was some miscommunication. I would definitely call back and say you need to be squeezed in asap. If you are in pain, that is a signal that something isn’t right and you should be seen.

for some reason I don’t think she meant your yearly appointment, that doesn’t make sense. Can’t you just book an appointment, and let them know what it’s for???
