Visiting the Gynecologist

Nothing like sitting naked under a flimsy paper gown and being reminded that a) you aren't having any sex ("I don't need any birth control at this time, no.") and b) you need to lose 10% of your body weight each year until you reach your ideal body weight ("Um, how long will that be? That involves math. I don't like math.")

Thank goodness I have the day off to recover. Or wallow. Haven't decided which yet.

Yeah, I actually went to the OB/GYN with Katie one time and went in for the exam. At the same time, I felt horrible that you have to go through this and oh-so-thankful I'm male. Jesus. How? Why? ...

kapgar said...

Clarification... I went in for Katie's exam.

Bring your own gown?

Oh the joy of having a perfect stranger shove cold instruments up your hoo-ha.

It's almost as good as having your ta-tas smooshed for a mamogram!

Melissa said...

Oh how I feel your pain. I've seen more of my OB/Gyn this year than I have all the other years combined. And technically speaking, he's seen more of me.

Just keep reminding yourself that at least you get a long weekend out of it.

I love that cartoon!

I hate going for those tests, but unfortunately, it's a necessary evil. I find thinking about naughty things makes the instrument-insertion part a lot easier.

Hope everything is as it should be, Sizz.

If you haven't already, get ice cream now. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Get ice cream.
I swear, they should sell it right there in the office.

... or maybe outside the office would be better.

I can't even imagine...

I think pap smears are fun!




Totally. kidding. But now you reminded me... it's about time I make that appointment. Gak.

I haven't been to a gynecologist in it seems like forever. I guess that's because it HAS BEEN forever.
I must say, though, it doesn't sound like fun.

Hope you're having a nice weekend.

It helps if your gyno is a hottie :)

or at least is a little oriental sweetie pie. hehe

Somehow I've dodged going to the gyno my whole life thus far. My doctor didn't feel that I needed to see one. Considering I don't want to insert even a tampon in that area, cold steel instruments does NOT sound like fun to me.
