So I am only 9 weeks along, and just had my head to toe physical yesterday at the Dr. She has assigned me an OB due to my tiny size. Well the Dr. yesterday, who is not a family Dr, just a walk in, but I go there regularly I left extremely unhappy with her.
Iam 24 and since I was 15, I've had PAP tests. Well yesterday she did a swab,since I just had a PAP in April and it was normal. And I have to say it was the most uncomfortable exam of that nature I have ever had. First off since I am so small, I have never had a Dr use a regular sized speculm, they always go down a size so it fits comfortably. Well she used an average size one, and also did not put gel/lube on it. So I had to deal with her forcing this too large, dry speculum into me, while she decided to point out that "Your a little dry" .It was actually painful! Plus she kept tightening it,since it clearly wouldn't fit and kept sliding out. It was horrid. Then when she did the abdominal exam, to feel if my uterus is the correct size for how far along I am I felt as though she was a little rough, while poking and prodding my belly. Maybe the poking and prodding my belly is normal, the way she went about it, but I just felt she was a little rough. Jabbing her fingers into my abdomen. I was slightly afraid for my tiny baby. I didn't say anything since she seemed in quite a rush the whole time and was chit chatting throughout it all. Plus I already had her change the hospital I am supposed to go to deliver since I heard very bad things about the sanitization. I don't want to seem like a pest but I shiver when I think about going back to see her in another month. I may call the other clinic we have, ask them if they have space to take me on then call the place I am going to now to let them know I will be continuing my care elsewhere. Any thoughts?
