Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
In order to see a doctor sooner, I suggest you go to Planned Parenthood. You can usually see a doctor within a few days. They are not able to do an extensive amount of testing, but they can offer general testing and treatment that will help, until you see your doctor of choice in May.
Usually doctors recommend taking birth control pills to help regulate and hormones and reduce menstrual pain. You get also get her a pap smear/pelvic exam that may reveal another problems that they will be able to treat.
