My period started almost a month ago. It hasn't stopped or lightened up much.
In a nutshell: I visited my gynecologist for a regular checkup. I told her that the entrance to my vagina hurt. She basically blew me off - claiming that I had herpes and gave me a prescription for Flagyl. I don't have herpes. She didn't listen to my complaints - she said everything looked normal to her. (Granted, she also told me that she could "fix" my lady bits by getting a labioplasty.) This experience kinda soured me on going back to the doctor. Not only that, but I have to wait another month or two before my insurance will cover another checkup.
Anyway, I still had pain and decided to try a homeopathic remedy. At the health store, they said to douche (yes, I know, its awful, before anyone starts lecturing me) with tea-tree oil and vinegar. I tried it... and then my period started. It hasn't let up. I don't feel anemic or tired, just SCARED because of the constant bleeding. I don't know what to do. I'm humiliated to go back to a doctor because of trying a stupid remedy. I know I don't want to go back to the woman I see previously. Help!
