1fish, I just go to planned parenthood. If you don't have insurance they work on a sliding fee scale, due to that and my low income, my last visit was free. They have volunteer Dr's and nurses, so it's not like you're getting the best help ever, but they get the job done.
I'm on BC, and I sometimes get cramps and "spot" through my cycle. I'm pretty sure I've got a small cyst though. I've had it for a while. Hopefully being back on BC will help. I'd like to get it checked out soon, but I'm not too worried, I'm no doctor but the pain has lessened significantly since I first noticed it. Some benign ones stick around longer than others... What really pisses me off is at P.P. they changed the age of regular pap smears to 21 instead of 18... So the doctor wouldn't even do that the last time I was in. You're SUPPOSED to start getting them as soon as you become sexually active. Not just 21.

My "weeks" still suck, but not nearly as bad as it used to be. I used to cramp so bad I couldn't get up or be productive in any way.

I had a roommate who was having irregular cycles and her doctor put her on BC. She was outraged. lol She said "I can't believe he did that! I'm not messing around with anyone!" I told her that they sometimes put women on BC to help them to have more regular cycles.

yeah, part of the reason I first went on BC was due to some pretty bad cramps. I've thrown up they were so bad before. the cramps were still bad after, but I haven't vomited because of them in several years, lol

AMEN!

I started it like at age 11 and people ALWAYS thought I was sexually active and I am all errmmm I am 11? 0_o It cleared my PMDD, my cycles are much more shortened, and best of all, it doesnt look like a murder scene anymore! LOL ;)

Oddly enough, I can only be on Yaz because everything else gives me bad side-effects. This is the only one I am actually tolerable to live with...

Hubby says, "You have generic?! We need go call the insurance company ASAP!! This is NOT OKAY!!!"

Oh geez, the joys of womanhood...

UPDATE;
I guess the surgeon cut through my cheek to get to my upper gum (according to a DIFFERENT surgeon) and it is not infected, but scabbing over, and that is all the white stuff. I still cannot chew or close my mouth because the swelling was so huge I would accidentily bite down on it so my cheek is deformed, gotta wait til it heals... ;/ But I am also off Benadryl, I am slowly spacing my pain meds farther apart, and my swelling is nearly gone!! *applause* Although on my right side (the problematic one) there is a solid mass in my cheek, which I need to get checked, and it is still painful which I suspect is the hole in my cheek.

I am all good guys, and finally able to function normally again, except for chewing food. YAY!
