Male readers: You are hereby allowed to not read further. But, seriously, its just a vagina doctor story. If you ever get married or have daughters, its probably better that you get used to the word and the idea. Vagina is not a dirty word.
And when I first went, I made my boyfriend go with me. I made him come in with me for the whole thing and he held my hand. I was 17. He stayed up be my head, obviously, but he was there. I am sure he was not super comfortable with being there, but he was there. And I remember thinking that he MUST really love me, because most boys of 17 would not accompany their girl friends to the gyno.
Now I am a pro. And going to the Woman Doctor is way less scary that the dermatologist for cancer screening, or the dentist with his evilness. And today I started a new birth control, because after years of taking the pill, I just reached a point where it was a struggle to remember to take my pill. So now, I have the Nuvaring! And I am kind of excited about it. It is supposed to be better with headaches because the hormones are released gradually the entire time, not daily (like the pill) or monthly (like the shot).
