So this is a strange question. My mom had a hysterectomy when I was 5 so she's not the most helpful resource on this topic.

I've been having quite a few problems with my lady parts lately. During my last period my cramps were so bad that I couldn't sleep at night, I was in so much pain and so tired that I started having panic attacks. This has reached the point of not being okay. I've always had really bad cramps but that is the final straw.

I've also had spotting and cramping when I shouldn't be. I've also been having pelvic pain. I have a referral to go and get a pelvic ultrasound to try and figure it out but I would also like to find a regular doctor now that I have insurance through my husbands job.

Can anyone give me advise on a good starting point? How do I find a good doctor? What should I be asking them about/talking to them about during the first appointment to make sure I am comfortable with them and that it's a good fit.

My family was pretty poor growing up. I haven't had a regular doctor of any kind since I was about 7 so I'm not sure how to go about this.
