i need help to make my mom go to the doc.

hi , my name is maddy and i myself deal with hpv and i just recently had surgery to remove part of my cervix.The problem i have is after dealing with this at such a young age (i am 21) i worry about my mother. My mom is 46 and she has not gone to a gyno in 11 yrs. .She has more than one period o month and they are both very heavy. She refuses to go to the doc (she has no health care) b/c she says she has no pain or signs of anything wrong.Now what i want to know,are there any signs of uterine cancer b/c i was told that heavy bleeding more than once a month is a sign in women over 40. I know she should see a doc but is there anything else i could tell her to make her go.and is it possibly just pre menapose. thank for the help.

Maddy,

I didn't go to the gyno for 6 years, he told me nothing wrong wait till you have your menopause it will be good. don't believe it for a minute.

Have your mother read my blog on here about everything I have gone through. It might just get her to go to the gyno. Offer to help her pay for the visit if she can't afford it. I know there are some womens clinics that do free pap smears. Although uterine cancer didn't show up on my pap test I had it. I am posted on here as santee and my blog is radiation after cancer diagnosis. I hope this helps her out.
