Strictly for the girls.......

Okay, so I have really bad periods. Very bad and heavy and all that stuff. So I finally found an OB/GYN here in Michigan that I like and he suggests we look at everything. I have an ultrasound, that shows some Andiometriosis (sp?) and then they schedule a biopsy. No cancer or anything, they just need a tissue sample to see what method of treatment is best for me. I have never had one of those done, but I go off to the doctor.

I have done a little research. I might get crampy, it could hurt a little, stuff like that. My doc told me to get some advil on board about two hours prior, to help with any pain. I am prepared. I get taken into a little exam room, asked all the right questions and told to undress from the waist down and sit in this chair/exam table thing with a sheet over all my business and wait.

Doc comes in, we talk about when the results will be in, various options for me when we know the results and so forth. He calls in the nurse, tells me to sit back and proceeds to push a pedal that literally turns me upside down. So my business is right up in his face. Hello.....the chair was not upside down when I entered the room, how am I supposed to know I would be upside down for this little procedure. Really? Really, really? Yes, upside down. The whole thing takes about a minute and a half. I did feel a pinch, but not much more.

You know and I know, after having children, we lose all modesty. And I do trust and like my doctor, but come on, upside down? I still cannot get over it. Is there no justice in this world? How come men aren't upside down? Or scooting closer to the edge of the table? Why is this saved just for us? If you are going to tell me this goes back to Eve and all that apple stuff, I am gonna blow a gasket. Is there no justice? I don't know.

I know we have to do these things for our health, I was just sharing with you in case you have to go in for a biopsy of your nether regions. I'm just saying......

God bless you and yours.

Was on that same table when I was dilating with my youngest...only the Dr. stuck her two hands up there to sew me shut. Glad she had small hands.........what we go through as women!
