I am 49 years old and for the first time I had a bump with a whitehead on it. It hurts very much and even though it left after hot compresses I still have the pain. It has been seven weeks with the pain. My periods have been regular but the pain increases during ovulation which I experienced twice already going on round three. I had a blood test done for herpes even though I inform the doctor that I am celebate because my husband has had cancer for eight years now. Neither of us are active. She looked at me with such disbelief and I am hurt. I took the blood test on April 4 and am still waiting for her to call. The lab is right across the street. The bump did not look anything like the herpes clusters. It looked like a pimple with a whitehead. I am so upset that I am still waiting and I know if I am still in pain it has to be related to my period. My uteris has been very tilted for 27 years and my periods feel like I am in labor. I felt like I was giving birth last month to my uteris. I do have fibroids that come and go. I need to know what this is. I do have an appointment on May 2, 2013. Please help. I am very upset.
Doctor, I had an exam a few days ago. The doctor was so rude. He told me within 5 minutes of our visit that I had cancer. But after a through exam, bioposy, blood work & ultra-sound (all of which were normal & showed no signs of cancer) did he say I have fibroids. I have done some research on my own & do believe I am in perimenopause & that my periods are probably not as heavy as I feel they are. At the time this all occurred, I switched from Citalpram to Lexapro. But the doc I saw didn't even ask any questions about anything. A very tramatic experience.
Thank you. The new doc I saw gave me a very big scare, said I had cancer. Did bother to ask me questions about anything. Well after a through exam, bioposy, blood work & ultra-sound I am happy to say everything is normal. Just fibroids & in perimenopause. I am not happy with this doc & will not see him again. Very rude & a very tramatic experience I had waiting for the results thinking I had cancer.
