I posted about this a month or two ago, but am now freaking out as the situation has gotten worse. I can't get an exam. It's not just that I dislike them, it's that I completely freak out and can't open my legs and cry etc. I need to avoid an exam. I know someone on here agreed with me that it's unethical of PP to hold my bc hostage. I sent a letter to their Philadelphia headquarters, got no response. The person I spoke to on the phone was not helpful and insisted I need an exam. I've been without my bc since beginning of November maybe. I had horrible 3-month-long periods when I was not on bc, which is a main reason I want it. I've yet to get a period, but I did take a pregnancy test and am not pregnant. I have not had PIV sex since I've been off the pill, but I really don't like the idea that I just can't for an indeterminate amount of time. I called the gyn office that my GP told me to see, and they said no, they won't prescribe me bc with just a consult and blood pressure check. I made an appointment with a doctor I do not know at all, but spent an hour crying at the idea of an exam with her. I don't think I will go. I guess I am just asking if any of you have any other ideas of what I can do or where I can go to get a prescription for bc pills without an exam. I am furious and just want my pills. All my friends were like "Oh just get the exam, nobody likes it, but you have to do it". It's not like that for me. It's not a minor annoyance, it borders on traumatic and I would do anything to avoid it. I can't calm down and I CANNOT stand someone looking at my legs and parts. So please, if you know any way I can get birth control without an exam, any place I can try, please let me know. I have heard of sites where they will prescribe you things and you can fill your prescriptions, but I doubt they'd take my insurance. I am sorry to bother you all with this again but I really want my pills and I really can't go through with an exam.
