Have you tried to make an appointment without insurance?

You can go to the ER but unless it's a women's health ER, they don't have gynecologists and aren't much help. So you'll get a bill for more than a thousand dollars but won't get the diagnosis or treatment you need.

Probably her best bet is Planned Parenthood, if they haven't been shut down where she lives. Otherwise, a sliding scale clinic or county clinic. But regular doctors usually won't even let you make an appointment without insurance.

Personally, no. But I work in healthcare and know it can be done. Doctors still take cash, checks and credit cards. Insurance is NOT a requirement

Of course I have insurance; I wouldn't be without it.

No, I don't have a chronic or serious medical condition and if I did..I'd make sure I'd see a doctor about it.

The person I'm responding to is saying she can't see doctor because she doesn't have insurance..well, that's not true. You do not need insurance to see a doctor.

Yes I’ve been on my period for two months now! When I was young it used to last for about five to six months and they put me on birth control to regulate it! Now I’m off and the count down begins lol I’ve been to the ER and received two ultrasounds and everything’s normal they just recommended birth control again 

Any luck figuring this out? This is what's happening with me. 33 yo, IUD a year ago, had my period like you mentioned for past 5-6 months.

Ladies! How about going BACK to the doctors who put you on BC/IUD and talk to them? Why do you think that because something unexpected (to you) means you can't go back to the same doctor? Maybe it means you need to do something different - there are many kinds of BC and many kinds of IUDs - it's not always try one thing and it is perfect.

So you think asking strangers on a forum is the right solution to your problem?

You might have more than constant bleeding to worry about.

How about going to see your doctor?

Again!
