Field Trip: Gynecologist

Today, I will be ranting about going to the gynecologist. Be warned.

My periods and I are not friends at all. Basically I have these earth-shattering cramps that make me throw up and pass out, combined with stomach angryness. Oh it’s a good time.

Last time I went to the gyn. she just told me to take advil. My regular doctor also told me to take advil. ADVIL DOESN’T WORK FOR THIS!

I’m not a fan of having people look at my vag. but I figured it would be better to get checked out rather than to be in the fetal position on the bathroom floor crying every month. So today, I sauntered on in to the office, signed in and all that, and proceeded to sit on a very floral themed couch. Waited, waited, waited more. After about a half an hour, I went up to the receptionist and was like “Hey, thought I had an appointment.” She assumed I was just hanging out on the couch waiting for someone. It smelled like old ladies in there and I wouldn’t be lounging around on my own free will. Gah! I’m kind of assuming she thought I was a boy. Neat.

She handed me this pink shirt thing and ushered me into a room. Awesome. Got naked, put it on. It was basically transparent. My nipple piercings were visible, my luxurious leg hair was all over the place. It was great.

Gyn. comes in like 20 minutes later and asks me if I use condoms or not. I sleep with girls, lady. “Girls have diseases, too.” And that was all she had to say about safe lesbian sex. I was astonished. I almost gave her a lecture on toy materials and dental dams and gloves and stuff. Then she said the only thing that would make my cramps better was birth control pills. I asked if she could just remove everything, but alas she said no. What a skank. She also acted like I had never seen a speculum before.

All in all, it was a super bad day to be any kind of manly. Sad, sad times.

  1. I’m sorry you had such a bad experience. I’ve had a few as well.

    But I totally had a good experience last year: http://essin-em.com/2008/03/best-trip-to-the-gynocologistever/

  2. You need to see a different gynaecologist, I think. Perhaps find a local FetLife group and ask there for recommendations? Because the one you saw was a pillock.

  3. The BC might help, though. I had really bad cramps that got drastically better once I went on BC. Sorry the appointment sucked. 😦

  4. I had cramps like that until I went on birth control. I now have two periods a year and could have none if it weren’t for monitoring purposes.

    No periods= heaven. 🙂

  5. Aww babe I’m sorry. My current lover is going through something similar. It’s like because his identity is male, the doctors think all the girly-part problems he has aren’t real or something. He’s been having them for 10 years and not one doctor has done an ultrasound.

    Hang in there.

    What a bitch! Do you have a planned parenthood near by? Thats where I would go, for a second opinion. If your in Richmond on a week day, the one near VCU is AMAZING! I had awful cramps before I went on BC at 15. Part of my problem was that I had a cyst…mabie you have one? when you see someone better, ask if you can get an ultrasound to check it out.

  7. You definitely need a different gyno.

    I went through three before I found one that actually listened to me and told me what was causing pretty much every single medical oddity I had: PCOS. Did your gyno do an ultrasound to take a look at things?
