Should I shave before I go to my gyn?

Should I shave before I go to my gyn?

Hair is fine: There is no need to shave pubic hair. The more people who shave their pubic hair, the more pressure there will be upon other people to also shave their pubic hair. Since there is nothing inherently abnormal about pubic hair, there is no reason to shave pubic hair. It's just fashion. If one is a teen, she has many other more important things to do, so pubic hair should not be an issue. ...Read more

I'm seeing a gyn for the first time tomorrow and I'm extremely nervous. How can I relax about this before and during the exam?

Use Condoms: Use barrier methods for birth control, diaphragm or condoms. It is not the gyn's fault that you did not get your pap smear and other needed test and examination in a timely manner.

Is it normal to get turned on at your gyn appt? Can they tell if you are? How do I stop this from happening I try to think of something else

Involuntary: Stimulation may cause increased secretions and sensations. Not abnormal; however, I do suggest that a female witness accompany you and your GYN to avoid any possible misunderstanding.

I have fluid retetnion meds don't work. Make it worse. I am post menapasal. Is there a dr. Who specializes in this. Not gyn not shrink who?

I have fluid retetnion meds don't work. Make it worse. I am post menapasal. Is there a dr. Who specializes in this. Not gyn not shrink who?

Some thoughts...: Fluid retention is a sign, not a disease, and so there are no specialists in this area. The key is "why are you retaining fluid? " Heart disease? Kidney disease? Sleep apnea? You need a primary doc who can help figure this out, if you need a specialist then go to the right one. If "meds don't work" for you it's because the meds chosen aren't addressing the root cause. Best wishes! ...Read more

I when to the gyn and she said I had white cell in my viginal what does that mean?

Inflammation: White cells indicate inflammation, sometimes because of an infection. Were you having any symptoms and/or did your gynaecologist mention anything else that she saw or prescribe any treatment? Some causes of white cells that are not due to an infection can include a sensitivity to condoms or tampons. If you have no bothersome symptoms it's likely not significant. Clarify this with your gyn. ...Read more
