the bleeding has finally subsided

Well the heavy bleeding we were experiencing after our test yesterday has finally subsided. It stopped this morning. It was kind of embarrassing, I had to ask my PA Frances if it had stopped. I would have prefered not to have to do that. I mean I know its not that big of a deal really, but it just felt odd to ask her to look at my pad and see if the blood was gone yet. I suppose I could’ve waited to ask my sister to look, but I didnt want to wait another couple of hours. Anyway, it is all good. It has completely stopped now, and there’s no more blood. I’m so relieved. I was worried when it got so heavy yesterday afternoon. When they told me at the clinic that I may bleed for up to 3 days, they said spotting, not heavy bleeding, but I suppose it was heavy due to them poking around inside of me. Mom was kinda annoyed at me when I told her I asked Frances to look to see if it had stopped. She was like, why didnt you wait and ask Laura? I’m like, well, what would I have done if Laura wasnt coming over? Or if there was no one else to ask? I had to ask her. I mean do people think I did a bad thing by asking frances to look for me? Is it really a big thing to do that, she’s not really a stranger, she’s a professional and my PA. I suppose my mom was just embarrassed to and knew I would be as well. Still I didnt appreciate her getting on my case about it.

    1. She has, I mean she does personal care as part of her job, with other clients I mean, so yeah, all good I mean I wasn’t anxious about showing her but when my mum got on my case I kind of was like well maybe did I do the wrong thing but now I know I didn’t

  1. You were not in the wrong and should not feel embarassed at all, she is a professional. As a female I have had male doctors that have done my pap tests etc, chest exams etc and have seen my private parts. Though I am very picky when it comes to doctors and choosing one, once I do I trust them unless they give me a reason not to. It never bothered me, it’s their job….
