I'm very afraid of this being a repost, but... 1- You, sir, are a pig! Bravo. lol 39- If you're going to hijack my MO, then at least make it good ... for example: -911, what's your emergency? -My duck is blowing Bubbles in the pond. -Pardon me? What is your name? -Duck! -No! Your name! - ... Duck? -sigh ... (click) -911, what's your emergency? -My duck is also blowing Bubbles in the pond. -WHO IS THIS? -DuckDuck. -grrrr ... (click) -911, what's your emergency? -I was swimming in this pond when two ducks just came out of nowhere ... -Who is this? What is your name, please? -Ummm ... Bubbles? See what I did there? I made it funny!
^^^^ 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.
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.
Unless you have a very good relationship with your gyno, I'd say that it was pretty unprofessional of them to make a comment like that.
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.
