Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hi, Dr. Mo here with JA. Please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.
There are better ways than general anesthesia.
We sometimes give our patients Valium or do conscious sedation so our patients don't feel anything and don't even recall the entire process.
You can ask most competent Gynecologists and they should have access to someone who will come and do in-office conscious sedation.
If not, you can find your own and ask your doctor if it's okay (almost always is).
I'm sorry but it seems that your doctors aren't very compassionate.
The irony is that even my dentist offers me full sedation and let's face it, going to the dentist is NOT as bad as having a pelvic exam done.
I hope they will accommodate you.
I'm glad I could help.
