  • i don't do anything out of the ordinary. I wax every 3 weeks and shave everyday and I also cleanse with a wipe almost everytime I go to the bathroom so I really don't need to do anything else.

    I am sure that your doctor appreciates that you clean but the rest...they don't really care.

  • I just make sure I take a shower the morning of the exam and wear clean underwear. I dont care what they think, it's for my own good and it's not like I see them on a daily basis

  • I don't do anything special. Just shower and wear clean underwear. I only see her once a year, I don't really care what she thinks, and she's not allowed to talk about it, anyway.

  • Shave and shower. That's all.

  • There have been a couple times I didn't shave my legs and I was a bit embarrassed, but if I don't wind up having time to shave oh well. as long as I take a shower before I go, I don't worry about it.
    Usually they tell me nothing inserted for the day before, this time they told me three days before?!?! If my fertile window happens to include the day two days before my appointment, they are just shit outta luck. I'll stick with the one day rule, not gonna miss my fertile window. Is that horrible? What does your doc tell you about non-insertion?

  • I try to make sure my toes are painted. I keep them painted all year long anyway but I just make sure the polish is not chipping. I make sure my feet look good.

  • I just shower, and maybe shave my legs. I used to perform paps, so I know that providers really don't look at that stuff. As long as you're clean, they're not concerned. They're looking for pink, healthy tissue, not how groomed you are.
    No doctor I know sees your underwear, so I don't know why one would worry about that one.
