I went to my Doctor in Jul/Aug 2016 due to painful

I went to my Doctor in Jul/Aug 2016 due to painful intercourse as I have never had an issue before. He did a pelvic exam and said everything appeared normal, no signs of menopause (I'm 47). My bloodwork a few months before supported normal hormones, I also had saliva testing that said hormones normal. He sent me for an ultrasound as well. The ultrasound showed an ovarian cyst 1.7 cm and then when my pap came back it showed endometrial cells. The ultrasound showed normal endometrium. I had a follow up ultrasound in six weeks that showed cyst was 3.5 cm, but they weren't sure if it was the same one. I have another ultrasound today to see if it is still there or if it has grown. He tried putting me on the pill to see if it would shrink it, but I didn't like the effects of it, so I stopped taking it and just went back to using my natural progesterone. I should mention that I have also been having follow up ultrasounds on my thyroid which is covered in cysts, and my breasts which showed cysts for the last year and a half or two years. My sister had stage 3 triple positive breast cancer. Do you think that they should have sent me to a gynecologist by now?JA: In general, how has your health been lately?Customer: Good, I would say.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: My doctor always felt that I probably had endometriosis due to my painful periods since I started at age 13. My periods are very light and always have been. For the past two years I have had breakthrough spotting each month. I have had 6 miscarriages and 2 live births. They figured that the miscarriages were due to my progesterone being too low and my last pregnancy in 1993 I used progesterone from week 7-10 to support healthy pregnancy. I had been waiting for a biopsy to prove low progesterone when I got pregnant, so I never did have the test. I had one D&C after my second miscarriage.

Dear Doctor, I have been dealing with some problems. I had

Dear Doctor,I have been dealing with some problems. I had abnormal vaginal bleeding for which and Ultrasound was done two times (transvaginal and from the abdomen) the ultrasound was fine but it showed the bleeding. My gynecologist prescribed me medication to stop the bleeding and also did a pelvic exam. Everything looked normal. However when I was asked if I wanted to do a Pap test now or later I said that I have anxiety and I want to do it now. She did a Pap test to check for any abnormal cells. I am afraid to call for the results. I wanted to know what the Pap test usually detects. I was told that everything looks normal as of the day of my checkup. But who knows I might have abnormal cells which are causing the bleeding. I am 24 years old.
