    So here goes!
    I am currently 29. January 2007 at age 23 I was diagnosed with endometriosis by having a laparoscopy/hytsaroscopy, thats confirmed! Had my son october 2009. starting at the end of last year endo. pain started coming back so march of this year my ob done a 6 month treatment of Lupron shot to get the endo under control w/o surgery.After the shots she put me on bc for 4 months straight w/o taking the sugar pills so i still wouldnt have a period.havent had a period since march of this year.well I started bleeding a week before my period should be due for the first time this month.It has now been 12 days with bleeding and mild cramping and thd bleeding is getting heavier...not stopping anytime soon. my ob has not been willing to help in any way except to say "call us if you have a real problem and if you are changing a pad or tampon 3 or more times in 1hr....CRAZY! so i have switched docs. I go to her next week for my pap but should i call her to see if she can get me in sooner and also what are your thoughts

    I would call and see if they can get you in sooner. Be sure to tell her that you've been bleeding for 12 days.
