Everytime I sit in the OB's office I wonder......

how the hell they do thier job? Seriously...wouldn't it be totally gross to have to look at women's crotches all day long? Not to mention there are some older women that come in, obviously....and some women that really smell bad. I just don't know how they do it!!!

  • yep, lots of women are there because of yeast infections, STDs, etc. Gross.
    On a similar topic, what makes a person in med school choose something like podiatry or colonoscopies for their specialty? Ick.

  • It's all in a day's work for them. I worked in an OB/GYN office for several years and I swear the doctors could yank out fermented tampons, do STD workups, colpos, PAPS, eat lunch and get back to business. I never remembered too much about each patient we say. I do remember one time when I assisted with a PAP, the doctor flung vaginal discharge in my direction and it hit my scrubs. It was pretty gross.
