Question: finished a 30 day period, can't Pee obgyn or urologist?

 problems101 - Sun Sep 16, 2007 5:33 pm

I was seeing an obgyn for my heavy periods, we did the tests, blood, pap, endo biopsy, internal ultrasound, according to the tests I'm fine.

I was considering novasure but I don't know if I want to think of myself as being steril, I'm 40 & no children, Things just never worked out.

So I was trying to get him to do a d & C, to make myself feel like I'm getting a fresh start, he won't do it, I understand that it's not a cure, & he said if a biopsy didn't show a problem then a D& C won't work. So I either did novasure or we were kind of done. He did give me prometrium, but I'm not feeling good on it. It knocks me out.

But after all this I can't seem to pee easily, I have to push so hard to get a few drops, & I don't even have any desire to pee. I know what I'm drinking & I think I should have to go but no luck. I don't think I should ask my obgyn, I don't think he's too happy with me. So I'm wondering if a urologist would be ok.

I have an appointment with my family dr in a couple of days. Hopefully I'll go soon

User avatar I don't know what is causing this problem but you should definitely talk to a doctor. Meanwhile, try urinating in a shallow warm bath. Sometimes this relaxes you enough to be able to do it.

I would not worry about the NovaSure ablation procedure and I'm not sure why you are hesitant about it. It can be a good option for you.

Good luck.
