Pre-Exam Ettiquette

Alrighty, VPers,

So, I've posted something recently about ongoing lady problems that no research can seem to match, though I'm thingking it's BV related. I don't want to post the same thing again with the long list of symptoms and such, but I finally scheduled an appointment for the 19th. Every time I go to a doctor for a situation in which I assume a pelvic exam will be needed, I make sure to clean very well down there to make it easier on the doctor. Now, one of the big symptoms is dark, dark, dark brown discharge directly associated to pelvic pain, but when I shower like that right before the appointment, the discharge is mostly washed away, and it looks like a small amount of old blood spotting (which I'm damn sure is not what it is). At that point they don't even complete an exam, give me YI medication and send me on my way.

So, my question is, do you think I should just go in all my brown-disaster-site glory? Or how about taking pictures and showing them to the gyn instead? Even though I asked the receptionist if I should keep track of anything and she said no? At this point, the sharp pains become so overwhelming and crippling, that I'm far from caring about embarrassment over it. I need it fixed now. Any feedback would be very appreciated, and the two options listed are the only I can think of, but if you have a different idea, suggest it! Thank you amazing gals (:
