Contact your general practitioner and ask to have an initial conversation about your pelvic discomfort.
In Denmark, your physician is your gatekeeper to help further.
WHY VISIT THE DOCTOR?
Regardless what is written on this website, it will be your doctor recommending treatment and make a diagnosis.
Consider what you want from your visit. Your general practitioner (GP) can offer general knowledge and different tests. Pelvic and abdominal issues are not the easiest to diagnose. The more you know, the better the chances are for the right help and diagnosis.
It is crucial that you relate to how you feel and it is essential the doctor understands this. The more confidence you built up before you go to the doctor, the better.
What is your purpose with the doctor’s appointment?
- Do you want the physician’s assessment of what is wrong?
- Do you want specific tests?
- Would you like to get referrals to a different part of the healthcare system?
Help yourself by reading these sections, if you want the doctor’s assessment of what might be wrong.
PREPARE YOUR VISIT
We have made a thorough pain-questionnaire for you to answer before visiting the general practitioner. Some questions might not be relevant to you, some probably will. Go through the answers with your GP and hopefully you will get closer to a diagnosis. If your doctor is not interested in your questionnaire, it still may help you reflect over your pain picture before going.
