Today I had to go and see the specialists over at RPA Hospital after my unsuccessful pap smear. I think the whole appointment can be summed up by the fact that I didn’t see one specialist, nor did I see two specialists – I saw three specialists. Turns out I have a congenital (present from birth) defect affecting my reproductive organs and possibly my urinary system. I need to go for a pelvic ultrasound to have a look at the extent of the defect and then an IVP to investigate my kidneys and urinary system. Then it’s back to the specialist to discuss the findings and if surgery is possible to correct some of the defects.
I have been told by the specialists not to give up my dream of having children as it should be possible for me to conceive. This is after me telling them that I have no desire to have children. I guess in their line of work they rarely see women who don’t want kids, especially since I was the only non-pregnant woman in the waiting room.
I must admit that I am a bit stressed out about this. Adding on the stress from work at the moment and you have only stressed out little vegemite. I just want the weekend to hurry up and get here so I can have some downtime to process this all.
