    My story does not compare with yours but I experienced the SAME treatment with peri-menopause. It took me breaking down in a new doctor’s office with a long list of ‘problems’ to get anyone’s attention. For YEARS afterwards (I just turned 60), I would cringe at my behavior. But at an appt 2 years ago, my doctor’s nurse told me ‘I’m so glad you did that. I was having so many of those symptoms and I just didn’t know WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME’. A Nurse. In an OB/GYN practice.
    If you think about, we pay a lot of money for our health insurance. We deserve treatment and we deserve dignity.
    I’m so glad you have found a path forward.

      Oh don’t feel bad! I am sorry it took that for the doctor to listen, but at least they finally did. How frustrating! And even more frustrating that a nurse said that. It’s insane how little research goes into a lot of women’s health issues!
