I'm so sorry-- I don't know why we expected better of a doctor, just because he is a specialist. I'm struggling with all this stuff myself, buy here are two new resources I am finding helpful. womentowomen.com has a lot of good info about hormone problems, I haven't done their program or questionares, but based on the quality of the site, it might be worth pursuing in more detail. Also, google "mirena buyer be aware"-- there is a GREAT essay by someone named Virginia Hopkins on the dangers of the mirena and how doctors are not adequately warning their patients. Wonderful, reasonable tone-- worth printing up and taking to doctors appointments because it brings up issues they would at least have to address, even if just in order to dismiss. Right now it feels like they aren't even willing to have a discussion with the likes of us.
