I changed Drs right before I got lyme symptoms - to a female dr.
And she has been amazing.
Had an initial consult - prelyme and then I was in her office once or twice weekly with a symptom list that kept growing.
I’m so fortunate she took it all seriously and not once suggested I see a psychiatrist.
One of the first tests I had was my hormone levels - and my estrogen was almost nil.
I was getting my periods right up to when lyme hit me - and then they just stopped. It put me into menopause.
She gave me a free container of the bio identical estrogen and prometrium to try.
It didn’t help - in fact a few symptoms exploded while I was taking it so I stopped.
A few months later She tried to do a Pap test and couldn’t get a sample - things weren’t “right” down “there”
That’s when she told me about
the tiny suppositories . The instructions are to take daily for a several weeks and then go to twice or three days after that.
Because they aren’t covered by insurance - she told me I could take them just 3 days a week from the start - and it will work - may just take a little longer.
I really like having a female dr - so comfortable talking to her about
She also accepts my lyme diagnosis and is very supportive.
