One of my dearest friends that I have known since middle school was given some odd information from her doctor today.
As a background, my friend does not use any hormonal form of BC (idk about condoms, but that is irrelevant) and hasn't in a few years. She has a history of endometriosis, but it was resolved a few years ago. Well, she hasn't had her period since December. Obviously she wondered if she was pregnant. Her and her H wanted to wait a few years, but I know it wouldn't have been the end of the world. Tests came back negative. She made an appointment with a GYN that finally happened today.
The GYN more or less told her
A) She needed to go back on the pill
If she didn't, she will most likely get ovarian cancer (no it does not run in her family)
C) When her and her H do want to TTC, they will have a hard time at it.
These three points were told to her after a VERY quick exam and even quicker chat.
I have never in my life heard that you NEED to go on the pill or you'll get cancer. I thought hte pill UPPED your risk for cancer?
I told her she should heavily consider seeing a different doc when she goes in for her tests.. I also recommended she try to find one that specializes in NFP and/or more natural ways to cure things than "hey go on the pill".
Idk if it's just the NFP side and/or the side of me that is protective of her, but I just find this totally odd. Any suggestions?
