I think I need to ring 111 but I had to ring them a year or so ago and in all honesty didn't find them particularly helpful!

Long story but I have suspected Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. After a 2 month wait I finally have an appointment for an ultrasound on Thursdsy afternoon.

I've refrained from sex for a few weeks because it has been slightly uncomfortable but on Sunday DP and I had sex a few times and yesterday I woke up with really bad abdominal/ pelvic pain and it hasn't gone, in fact it's got worse.

I know I've got this ultrasound appointment Thurs afternoon but I haven't had pain like this before. Suddenly, Thurs seems like such a long way away sad

I'm terrified about what this has potentially done to my reproductive organs and what it's doing to them right now with these pains. I'm so worried about being infertile sad

111 just read from a script but will direct you to the right place.

the stomach pain may be nothing to do with your reproductive system. Call for advice.

Well they were useless as I thought. Take some paracetamol and have a hot water bottle.

I've got bacteria attacking my reproductive organs, servere abdominal & pelvic pain that IS related to that I know it is, but oh well I'll just take some paracetamol and let it do another 2 days worth of damage.

See your GP? Ring and say it's an emergency.

111 are there for out of hours advice. If your GP is open you can phone them. I think you're being a bit dramatic suggesting that it's letting it do another 2 days of damage. If 2 days was a critical time factor you wouldn't have been given an out patient scan and you would have been given prospective treatment prior to scan.

If you need to be seen today, phone your GP. Or if you're that concerned, go to A&E. When you have your scan in two days time they're likely to tell you the results will be back with your GP in two weeks - unless it's a consultant appt with ultrasound as part of it (v.unlikely) there will be no review of it on the spot.

OP You do realize your DP should also be checked out?
