^^^^ Oddest thread I've seen in a while.. And I feel compelled to call BS.. If I'm not remembering incorrectly.. The vagina doesn't actually become tight when you lay off the sex.. It becomes tighter only when nervous.. Lack of sex doesn't make it tighter over the course of time, because it only becomes "loose" when aroused.. It's a muscle after all.. Working that muscle is more likely to make it tighter, not inactivity. Wouldn't a gynecologist know this? Then again, she was probably joking, rendering the above statement to mean a simply ignorant OP.

Wtf? Why did I get moderated? For saying I was tempted to say BS, and saying why? Do admins only read the first words and disregard the end? Cause I very clearly stated I was probably wrong. Sure, let's moderate that instead of some of the arguing and off-topic talking.

Okay, someone's going to have to explain something I've been wondering to me. How is "prude" an insult? To me, it sounds like "prudent," which means "wise" (technically, it means "Acting with or showing care and thought for the future," but that's too long), so I've never gotten why.

"Excessively proper" is the key phrase here Everything is bad in excess. And excessively sexual girl is as bad as an excessively proper girl. Excess in drinking water is bad. Excess in working out is bad. Moderately proper would be a good medium.. But that's not a prude.

It's extremely unprofessional and borderline unethical. OP needs to get a new doctor anyway because this one is terrible. No matter how "tight" you are, your doctor should be able to complete the exam. I sincerely doubt you are the tightest she's seen. That's why they have speculums and other tools.

I agree. I'd probably fake-laugh, but I wouldn't be amused. I'd definitely find a different doc, too. I'm usually OK with doctors joking around, and I get that the gyn could've been trying to help OP relax. An already-painful painful pelvic exam will make you tense up, leading to more difficulties and pain. But there are lots of ways that particular joke could be offensive, since it could be construed as being at the patient's expense. It's just not professional, and I've learned the hard way that unprofessional doctors aren't worth your time and money. Sidenote: this sounds like a health clinic/PP exam to me. I've had horrific experiences at those places.

Ha Jim! I agree with the tone of your reply, even if I don't agree with the exact wording. After all, children will say childish things. Haven't done much yet but already know it all. Hopefully she shows more respect to her parents.
