Going to the gynecologist is an essential part of our health care, but it's also probably the weirdest. We lie down on that exam table, prop our feet up on those stirrups, and let someone we do not even know that well examine our most private parts. With a recipe like that it is no wonder women have had so many embarrassing things happen at their OB-GYN office. From the most cringe-worthy experiences to ones that can be laughed off, women never know what they are getting into when it comes to a trip to the gyno. It is one of those woman things that we just have to deal with and hope it all goes well!
