Today, I'm waiting to be examined thanks to a clitoral abscess. It burst yesterday and has now shrunk to nothing, so the doctor will probably dismiss me again. This is the eighth time in five months, and no one will take me seriously. I'm in agony. FML

Next time the abscess erupts, take a photo, and upload to your electronic patient portal if you have signed up. Include a note to the doctor and this should expedite the next consult. Good luck and hope you get it treated!

Yiiikes im sorry to hear that it must be unimaginably painful. Next time it happens, go to urgent care. If you have good health insurance and it won’t be too costly (or you’re not American), head to the ER. You could also try switching physicians to one who will hopefully listen to. And take a photo like the other poster said. Good luck!

Yeah this is what I was going to say. DOCUMENT. They can't argue with hard proof.

Rx: Masturbate less vigorously. No refills.

I thought that applied only to banjo strings??

I feel your pain more than I care to admit. I suffer from something very similar location wise. My last one was terrible; 4 antibiotics and pain meds over a two week period. The bacteria was resistant to 3 of the antibiotics. I agree with the other comments about taking a photo/video for hard proof. My suggestion would be to take a q-tip or other cotton swab and collect a sample of the infection. Save and take to an immediate care facility or whatever is available to you and tell them to run cultures on it.

Unless your doctor(s) are brain dead or honestly assholes, how can they diniss you that may times? Also, have you not tried a different clinic? I mean, if you have the time and money, go somewhere else.
