So, before the 4th of July I started bleeding which wouldn't usually concern me but this month I was 10 days early. I have never had this problem before, except when I was diagnosed with my ovarian cyst over a year ago when I bled non-stop for over a month. Not only that, but I have been super weak and tired, and very bad stomach pains/cramps. One day at lunch, I went to a local Urgent Care and asked a nurse if it could be stress related or related to my cyst possibly. She asked me to check in to do a pregnancy test, which I seriously doubted was the case. I go to my usual doctor yesterday and she tells me it is normal for women to have flaky periods and that I should go to a neurologist because I feel weak and disoriented. What kind of wack job answer is that? I am not a 13 year old girl who just started my period, I am pretty confident that there is something else going on. What are your thoughts?

I think you should get those other symptoms checked out. If you don't like the advice from your Dr, get another opinion and don't let them push you around or tell you it's nothing. I find that Doctors are often so quick to process you in and out they aren't always looking at the big picture and evaluating how all of your symptoms are related. The best Doctors will consider all of those things. I've found a few good ones over the years. I hope you feel better soon!

It is really hard to find a good Doctor! My Dr. isn't taking new patients so I can't recommend him, but you should ask your friends who they have (if they are happy) and see if any of those are accepting new patients.

I had problems with menstruation too and am in my 30's now. My Dr. performed a D&C;to clean out my uterus and check for problems. There was a small polyp at the mouth of my uterus but that was not the problem. I ,with my doctor, decided to have an Mirena IUD put in (it stays for 5 yrs then you need to change it) and have not had pain or periods! Maybe my story will give you something to discuss with your doctor. The IUD should only be used for those who have completed their family as there is always a small risk of uterine perforation upon insertion. I had no problems. If there is any other questions you may have, ask away!
