It's about to get real!
Trips to the OBGYN: You can’t live with them, but you certainly shouldn’t try to live without them (if you’ve got lady parts). Gynecologists definitely don’t have the easiest of jobs, but we’re grateful that they don’t mind scrounging around between our legs, answering all of the burning, itching and oozing questions.
While they may have seen it all, there are some things they would rather never see again. Read the patient habits that your gyno absolutely dreads being a part of.
While it might seem strange and unbelievable, you don’t have to cancel your appointment because you’re on your period. As long as you give a heads up, you should be fine.
Relax and open wide ladies. Even though the process can be uncomfortable, make it a little easier by scooting forward so the doc can get a good look at what’s going on.
Bringing a Friend
Don’t try to make your appointment a group project. They only need to see you, so leave friends and significant others in the waiting room.
