  • We all hate them. I canceled my last one because I was just so sick of doctors that I didn't want to deal with it. (I know, bad.)

  • i need to go in for my annual
    but the last time i was there i was so sore he couldnt insert a finger much less the speculum- he basically said, "...and your point is"?
    i cried during the exam and well, I Don't Wanna!

    and to top it all off, as soon as I stop nursing I get to go in and have some new stranger squash my boob :(

  • Just had mine in May. Like an early birthday present. LOL. A new Dr. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't fun either. They also gave me a tetenus shot. Insult to injury. Wonderful things I learned during my appointment? My new GYN lives in my neighborhood and often uses the pool, so we are likely to run into each other there. If that isn't enough, they also belong to the same gym as us and they frequent the gym and pool there too. So no matter where I go, there is possibly a man besides my DH that has seen my nether region. Goody!

  • The last one I went to, I told the doctor--who happened to be a man--that he should take a lesson from John Wayne. A good cowboy always warms the bit up in his shirt before he stuffs it in the horse's mouth.
