I got my IUD on March 19th (just a few weeks ago) and I have been having severe pain ever since. March 28th I begged to be seen. But over he phone my GYN's assistant said 'You are fine'. Today I had to go to the ER because the pain was so bad.
The doc took a pelvic exam, swabs and took blood. He calmly said 'It looks like you might have an infection. I'll be back when your blood results come back.'
Not 10 min later the nurse says shes putting an antibiotics shot in my hip. I was a bit confused why they felt it was necessary since they didnt even have results back. The doctor then peeked his head in and said my blood came back negative for any problem, and the cervix swabs would be back in a few days. A few min later the nurse came in to discharge me. The form said 'Diagnosis: Endomitriosis. Medical instructions: Pelvic inflammatory disease'
I was shocked. I asked: "What is this about?? The doctor said I MAYBE had an infection. He never mentioned PID or endomitriosis"
The nurse stumbled around a bit and said "riiiiight... thats why you need to have a follow up with your primary care provider"
so, Im now taking a full course of Doxycycline, and have an appointment for Thursday.. And the damn thing is still in me. Im a bit worried...
does anyone have a similar story???
