Thought For The Day:
Do you remember your first pelvic exam experience?
If you were just entering your teens, you likely sat at the end of the table, a bit chilly, wearing a gown that had too many gaps. If your visit was more recent, this ill fitting gown was likely made of flimsy paper that ripped at the shoulders when you tried to gently place your arms through the openings.
Then there was the room itself. You glanced down at a cart by the table and saw some pretty strange instruments. Maybe your best friend, older sister, or mother had told you about the speculum, and you wondered how that instrument could possibly fit comfortably inside your body.
And while you were thinking all that over, in came your (hopefully) cheery doc who introduced herself and eventually asked you to slide your buttocks impossibly far down the table, giving you kinks in your knees . . . .
