I need some serious help... I'm five weeks pregnant and have been spotting and even a little light bleeding one day. I live in Toronto Ontario and I don't have a doctor...not even a family physician. I called Telehealth and they recommended I go see a doctor in the next four hours at one of the walk-in clinics...this was Sat. The bleeding stopped so I didn't figure it was emergency room worthy so decided to wait till today for the walk-in clinics to open since I figured I could use them worse case. Well the ones I've been to aren't actually walk-in..you need an appointment and they don't have any free this week! I've tried calling doctors off the College of Surgeons and Physicians of Ontario but no one is answering their phones!! I'm really getting frustrated and upset. Can anyone help? Does anyone know of any walk-in clinics or Women's health centres that can see me? I'm new to Canadian medical much less Ontario's medical so I'm really lost here. It needs to be in Toronto and preferably TTC accessible. Tho at this point I'll take a taxi if I have too...
Ok, I don't live in Ontario and I'm not much help with the doctors but have you considered seeing a midwife? You might get in easier to see one of them. There is an Association of Ontario Midwives, they have a website and here is their contact info: (416) 425-9974 or
Email: email@example.com. It says you can call that number to find a midwife close to you. Hope this helps! Or someone will post something about doctors!
Thanks so much for the suggestions. I finally got through somewhere and I now have an appointment tomorrow. So I can now breath a little easier knowing I'll be seen soon.
Mel: When I had the light bleeding Sat it was red and even had a clout or two. It only lasted under an hour and wasn't enough that I needed to use a pad or anything. Then it reduced to pink spotting and finally another hour later disappeared altogether. The nurse on the phone said it was probably implantation bleeding but since I'd been spotting for a few days said it would be a good idea to be seen soon.
