    well I was just up with my doctor and I asked him about the fact that I was only bleeding for a few hours around the time I was due my period. He said hes ot sure if this is normal or if I should count it as a period as hes not an expert on periods!!!! it was like he was rushing me out the door he didnt do any tests or anything on me. What do you girls think? would you count it as a period or not? Im too scared to test as I dont want to get another BFP

    Hi there. Don't really know what to suggest, but if your periods are usually longer and this ws out of the ordinary for you, I would test. If it is negative I would make another appointment to see someone else. Normally doctors would tell you to come in if there is anything out of the ordinary going on so sounds like you have a very unsympathetic one! Sorry couldn't be more help!

    Did you mean to say you don't want another BFP...wasn't sure if you were hoping to be preg or not....sorry. Anyway, you may or may not have any other signs, but as your mood logo says your tired!:sleep: that's a sign. Hope your tests come soon and you can know either way!

    your doc sounds like an @ss, you should deffo get a new one!! I prefer a female OB, that has children and is between the age of 30-45. kinda picky i know, but i'm picky about anyone else that gets near my who-ha, why not the person who is supposed to keep it safe!?

    Sometimes when it comes to doctors you need to state exactly what you want. For example, you need to tell him about your irregular bleeding and asking him "Do i count this as my period?" If he replies that hes not sure, then you need to tell him (not ask) to do what he can to find out, and if he cant answer your questions to your satisfaction, to refer you to someone who can, even if its just another GP. Also, if you go again, get them to test you with a urine test. That way its free!
    I think even with non pregnancy stuff you need to be very direct with doctors these days. GP's are under much pressure to get you in and out in as little time possible, and happily charge you your $50 for their 5 mins. You need to demand what you want, and make sure they understand that you wont leave till your satisfied. Dont feel scared to ask that they explain things to you better. Thats their job!

    were i live there is only two doctors, my doctor who is in his 30s and an 70 year old man who i wouldnt feel comfortable discussing this with. there does be a nurse there two times a week but she is usally booked up with kids and doing the injections that you can never get an appointment to see her. My doctor told me that I should not come back to see him untill after i go see the gyno which is not until next month

    Yea - your doctor sounds like a right idiot. Family planning is the basics !!
    They should've covered that on day 1.

    I'd test - just a tiny bleed like that is unusual - but highly usual if you're PG.
    :test: xxx
