So, I've been having some issues with my inner lady parts (not sure exactly which part, hence just saying lady parts....). I've looked online to see if it's something serious, and everything online, of course, gives you a worst case scenario. So, I wanted to see if anyone here had experienced something similar, and if so, what tests were run, etc. I REALLY don't want to go through any sort of testing that wouldn't be necessary (most of the tests I've read about to figure out what's going on inside are vaginal ultrasounds, CT scans/MRI, biopsy, etc).
Some back story, last March, I gave birth to my YDD. Late February, the doc tried to stip my membranes. However, she wasn't an OB, so she didn't do it correctly, and only half was stripped, and I was left in a HELL of a lot of pain (could barely move for a few days). It was messed up so bad that my placenta actually broke apart and the OB who delivered my YDD had to actually go in with his hands and pull out all the pieces.. So maybe the issues are from that... (Of course, it wasn't noted that she messed up.. But it is noted that the placenta broke apart). YDD is my third baby.
Anyway, here's what's been going on:
-Extremely heavy periods. As in, two days of the 4 days of actual bleeding (not spotting), I am going through a pad an hour. I NEVER had heavy periods, usually it was spotting to light bleeding.
-Stabbing/shooting pains in either my uterus or ovary (not sure which exactly... though I could show the doc exactly where, and they could probably figure it out), sometimes so bad that I bend over in pain , and it's not only during my period.
Any ideas? I don't want to go in if I don't have to (I am strangely afraid of doctors. lol), and I most definitely don't want to get tests done if they aren't needed. But if there is something to be concerned about, I want to go in to get checked.
