Today, an elderly patient complained because I used the words "vaginal" and "breast". I work at an OBGYN's office. FML

"Mrs. Dickinson, I'll be inserting the speculum into your hoo-ha, and then checking your milk machines for any lumps."

You should try words like "no no place" and "chi chi"

Sorry but what's chi chi?

#24: a chi chi is the same thing as a tata.

before anybody asks what are boobies, titties.

"Mrs. Dickinson, I'll be inserting the speculum into your hoo-ha, and then checking your milk machines for any lumps."

since there was certainly no way around you saying that you'll likely not get into anu trouble where you work. the elderly woman was most likely a little senile

How dare you use anatomically correct terms? I'm shocked and appalled!

So what, she wants you to say pussy and titties?

It annoys me that people nowadays are way too sensitive. If a hospital/clinic is not an acceptable place to say those words, then shit, why do we even have words for them then? Vaginas and breasts exist people. Get over it.

This comment would be appropriate 60 years ago.

The bizarre shame, embarrassment, and ignorance associated with female anatomy has been around for centuries. The clitoris, which isn't merely the small protruding glans we're most familiar with, was subject to constant rediscovery due to researchers omitting it from older anatomy books. If anything, we're doing much better nowadays.

It WAS an elderly patient...

how dare you use medical terms you should of said knockers and va Jay Jay

Maybe she preferred you to call it the headache rack and jiffy lube station..... Sounds like she just wanted her half coupon...

Am I the only one picturing Dr Elliot Reed? Bajingo

Nope you aren't.

I love Elliot. Penis is "schwing schwong", vagina is "bajingo" and cervical mucus is "icky sticky".

OP, you might want to ease up on the language to "cooter pooch" and "jugs" instead.
