Hi All, I'm in the U.S. I had a period, complete with breast tenderness and my usual week-long migraine, after 13 months. The doctor said I needed an ultrasound, which showed endometrial thickness of 5.7mm. He said that required a biopsy. I went in for an in-office biopsy, but my cervix has closed. He wanted to do a D&C in the hospital, but with my lousy insurance, it would end up costing me over $7,000! That's four months' take-home pay. He tried again after giving me a drug to dilate my cervix. Still no luck today. He said that, medically and legally, he needs to advise me to have the biopsy still or otherwise can't rule out cancer. He also said that given my "period-like" symptoms, he's less concerned and will go with whatever I'd like, including waiting to see if bleeding returns. My boyfriend is nervous and I hate that I'm worrying him, but I don't want to make payments to the hospital for the next several years! Opinions, please?
