Why Doctors Are Evil


Okay so they are not really evil but I swear they never give you all the information you need.  So I am suppose to go in and have this procedure done because well for the last several weeks I have been dealing with some serious irregular bleeding.  So I finally was able to meet with a gynecologist who said that they would be doing a hysteroscopy to see what is going on and hopefully fix the issue.

I schedule the date for the procedure and everything but when I walk out of the office I notice that the sheet that the scheduling person gave me said Dilation and curettage, or D&C, which FYI is much more scary to me.

I already know that I am going to have a hard time if I am ever going to get pregnant. First, I would probably have to go off my antidepressant, which is not something I look forward to at all because who knows how I will react emotional with all of those other hormones going on in me.  Secondly, my liver issues might cause a problem, I am hoping they will not.  The biggest issue though is the fact that I have been told that I have Polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS.

Besides the fact that have PCOS and my liver problem at the same time really means that I have to lose weight (which is hard because I really use food as a stress reliever but I am working on that) what I have read about the D&C is kind of scary.

WebMD says there is a chance that after the D&C that you may form scar tissue in your uterus which would lead to infertility. It is rare, but seriously, not being able to have children is one of my biggest fears ever.

So now I am scheduled to have this procedure that I do not really want to have but I know that I need it. I am super scared that something is going to wrong even though realistically the risk is small.

On the plus side it is month away so I can lose some weight before it. I don’t know if that will help but maybe it will.  On the negative side, it is a month away so I get several weeks of worrying and living inside my head and dreaming up all of the worst case scenarios. Awesome!
