I have PTLS. I've been waiting 2 months to see a specialist. In that time I was rescheduled twice. I finally got in today after a four hour wait.

The moment the guy came in, he had written me off. He said ptls is fake and all my symptoms are psychosomatic. Fake symptoms from having been raped years ago. Never mind that I was fine for four years after rape and these problems started when my period resumed a year after getting my tubes tied.

So, he did an ultrasound... Was SHOCKED that I asked to insert the wand myself, and then did a manual exam. He inserted 4 fingers for the manual exam. Crazy. Fucking. Painful! Then proceeded to tell me my symptoms are in my head and offered me a shot to shut down my pituitary gland and induce menopause, knowing that the side effects include full body pain, which i already have,.and its not safe for breastfeeding.

I'm so frustrated. I mean, wtf?? I just want some answers, not to be treated like I'm making it all up :(

Good luck.

Quoting PeacefulLotus:

I don't know. I'm going to try to get in with my regular OB next week.




Quoting blue-heart:

I am so sorry. Is there another specialist you can go to?

That's what I was wondering too... Nothing about this man screams 'I got my medical degree legally.'

Quoting mattiehatter:

Four fingers for an exam?! Where the hell did he get his medical license?

Because she has PTLS post tubal ligation syndrome. 

Quoting Supervane:

I'm.very confused... Partly.because I don't understand the condition. But why reverse it, to have your spouse sterilize?


Quoting PeacefulLotus:

It was my decision, not his. He will get a vasectomy if I get a reversal.




Quoting Anonymous:

I just didn't understand why your husband didn't step up and get snipped himself.






Quoting PeacefulLotus:

I had four mcs before having two healthy babies. I almost died with WA h c section. The second one, I flatlined. My babies did not do well either. I had one 15mo pp because it would be unwise for me to get pregnant again








Quoting Anonymous:

May I ask why you got a tubal to begin with? Were you open for a c section already?

That's just disturbing, especially using four fingers for a vaginal exam. That seems so strange, and almost like he wanted to to feel degraded! Did you not say anything when you realized? I probably would have kicked his hand. :/

I shouted and was crying, but then I kinda shut down.
