Dr. Pfeiffer :

when was your last pelvic and pap test done

Dr. Pfeiffer :

how long have you been on birth control

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok...seems like you are having trouble....

Dr. Pfeiffer :

normally we prescribe birth control pills for a year or sometimes 6 months in the case where a follow up pap test is required.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

this serves as a reminder that it's time to see your doctor for your annual pelvic exam and pap test.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so...sounds like you need to touch basis with your doctor for an exam and pap test....

Dr. Pfeiffer :

at that visit your birth control pills will be refilled if requested.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

if I haven't completely answered your questions please let me know.

Customer:

last month

Dr. Pfeiffer :

what happened last month?

Customer:

got my pelvic exam last month

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok...

Dr. Pfeiffer :

if everything was normal you should have been given a prescription for several packs of pills.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

there should be a refill on the prescription.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so..if you don't have pills left, you need to call the pharmacy to refill them.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

are you just starting your period or just finishing?

Customer:

my doctor start birth control on me last year have last pack today

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok..

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so you've been on the pill for a year and had a pelvic exam done last month...

Dr. Pfeiffer :

you should have pills available on the prescription.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

call the pharmacy where you got them and check.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

you should just have to pick up more at the pharmacy and continue taking them as you have the last year.

Customer:

my doctor gave me the birth control dec last then she gave 3 more month for this year but have last pack for this month

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok...

Dr. Pfeiffer :

in that case you need to call her on monday to get more.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

I'm having difficulty understanding if there's a break in the pills...but I would recommend using a condom or not having sex until you talk with your doctor on Monday and get more pills.

Customer:

Do need pelvic exam done

Dr. Pfeiffer :

not if you had one last month and it was normal.

Customer:

But pain in pelvic what to do

Dr. Pfeiffer :

you will need a pelvic exam to evaluate the pain...
