I'm scared to bring up female health concern with my dr due to anxiety/triggers. How can I tell her in a 10 min apt?

In brief: Be creative!

Write down your question or concern and read it to her as soon as she enters the room. Alternatively, hand her the written question.
Don't allow your anxiety to cause you to wait until the very end of your appointment or there may not be enough time for you to get satisfactory answers.

I'd bet your doctor has her/himself felt very anxious like this about something at least once or twice in her/his life!

In brief: Tell your doctor

That you are anxious and may need some extra time to speak with them. They can make time for special circumstances in the busiest of practices.
