I think this may be what's giving us a hard time in TTC.
I have horrible periods, heavy, last for a week or more, terrible pain. Saw a Gyno about this last year, and she said it may be endometriosis, but she wanted to do a pelvic exam before going any further with diagnosing it. Well I am against pelvic exams for personal reasons, and basically she told me there was nothing she could do for me then, since I "refused treatment." I didn't feel a pelvic was necessary even if I wasn't against them, since I had never had sex at the time, and I was under 18.
Still against pelvic's now, and I really don't want to go through that again, but we're TTC with no luck basically. We've been having unprotected sex since just before we got married, so almost a year now, and nothing. And my symptoms are getting worse, as they do with endometriosis. I want help, the diagnostic laparoscopy, but just no pelvic's.
How can I find a provider that will help me and not pressure me into things I don't want? Anyone in AZ or even bordering states that have recommendations for a provider? At this point, I will do what I have to to find the right person.
Thanks for the help ladies. Sorry if this got a bit long.
