I went to the walk-in for a sore throat and earache that lasted just too long. I got lucky! The doctor who saw me was funny and professional, and they listened!

When they asked, “Are there any other concerns you have?”. Because I wasn’t in pain right then, it almost didn’t cross my mind and I almost didn’t mention it. “Oh, yeah!” and so I explained how I had been experiences random pelvic pain that seemed unrelated to any activity I was doing; sitting or standing, sexually active or not, and at any time of the day.

The doctor explained that unfortunately, pelvic pain is a complicated issue and being a general practitioner, that wasn’t exactly an area of expertise. So now I have a referral to see a gynecologist in 3 weeks. Wish me luck.
