    Find a better GYN. Then, get a partial hysterectomy at least (remove the uterus/cervix). Nothing left to bleed!

    I went through all kinds of problems when I was diagnosed w/ PCOS. In the end, taking the parts out does sometimes help the best.

    Sorry for your problems, I do so wish we had some kind of healthcare system to cover all.

    THANK you! My sister, who is uninsured, was basically treated like crap in the ER of a local hospital back in July of 2005. She had been experiencing lower abdominal pain and hematuria for weeks, and had no other place to go for treatment. They ran tests and told her and my BIL that "they both had STD and for them to go home and take precautions". Huh??? She found out from her PCP 24 hours later that she had a malignant tumor on her bladder instead and was immediately scheduled for another hospital.

    How in the world can you be diagnosed with STD one day and bladder cancer the next?? You CAN'T. :angryfire

    The ER gave you the most likely diagnosis, and at the same time they did labs to confirm it. The PCP got the results of the labs (negative) and then with that information gave you the next likely diagnosis which turned out to be correct.

    I'd definitely get a 2nd opinion from a GYN...I had endometriosis and PCOS that caused me to miss work, bleed, etc...I had a TAH/BSO when I was 22 and haven't regretted it or had ONE problem since...there are other doctors out there willing to help...good luck!!
