Try not to worry too much.
Well first of all you definitely need to change doctors!
I agree with all of the previous posts and truly hope that it is just post-pap bleeding (which is VERY common).
Jayhawk is right on the money though about "firing" a doc that you don't care for. I teach classes in a busy Labor and Delivery Unit at my local hospital so I run into A LOT of doctors. Just like the folks at the checkout counter at the grocery store, some are more personable than others. There are lots of choices out there and it's so wholeheartedly worth shopping around for a new one if your personalities don't mesh or you don't feel they listen to you or you just don't get warm and fuzzies from them.
Ask local friends, family, coworkers, etc. who they go to and you'll probably hear 1 or 2 names popping up moreso than others (also a good way to find a pediatrician) and set up a consult appt.)
Good luck with everything and keep us posted.
Hi Carol ~
Thanks for your words of support!
Thanks for your words of support jayhawkmom08 ~
I did call the maternal fetal medicine doctor I was going to see for my transvaginal ultrasound to schedule an appt,
Thanks for your support and encouragement.
I am sorry that you are having to go through this with a not very supportive (or informative) doctor.
I just want to point out that I don't believe in pap smears during pregnancy, I believe there is some risk associated with this. I've read dozens of stories on the internet already about pregnant women having pap smears, then bleeding immediately afterward or having m/c.
I told my ob/gyn I refused to have a pap smear during pregnancy, she got angry with me so I am looking for a new ob/gyn.
There are no studies that prove that pap smears are safe during pregnancy.
Thanks so much for all your suggestions and advice!
