"Gynecology service was dismissive and didn't..."

About: Northampton General Hospital (Acute)

I went to the service with an issue that had previously been treated by a GP with antibiotics. I was aware the issue was returning, it was clear to me as it was visible but the Gynecologist considered the issue was non existent, said there was nothing to do because there was no problem, that the body changes with age, and when pressed for an explanation for the prior time I had the same thing, the doctor kept insisting the body changes over time. Less than a week later I'm back to antibiotics, so thank you very much for nothing.
