    That reminds me, I need to make my appointment soon. I don't think I'll need to have an exam this year, since I had one last year. Here in Sweden, as long as you're relatively young and healthy and with no history of disease or abnormal test results, they don't require you to have the pelvic exam every year. Once every two years suffices. I do need to have my birth control prescription renewed for another, but that only involves a little chat with the doctor or nurse.

    Ok, I am going to be the thorny one here! Please get your pap smears annually. Cervical cancer is a real and dangerous animal, and ovarian cancer is a killer. In the span of one year, between exams, I had carcinomia in-situ, which is abnormal cervical cells that will develop into cancer if left untreated. As much as we hate these exams, they are important.

    *steps off soapbox and shuts up*

    Now, off the the beach for a few days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess I'm lucky, no cold steel for me. My doc keeps the speculums in a heated drawer . They are made of plastic and disposable.

    I can't say I enjoy my yearly exams, but I've had worse things done to me.

    I remember when I had an exam by a male doctor years ago. It was my first visit with him and I was super tense. He asked me if I was sexually active and I said, "Not really, I just kinda lay there."

    I tend to say inappropriate things when under stress. :lol

    Yeah, we get our speculums in plastic here where I live. That's a bit better than steel. It's not a big deal though....Just a check up.

    That's funny, CL.

    Once every six months for me. I had tumour removed at 23.
    He has plastic and steel, I always choose steel because the plastic ones go in the bin. He just keeps it in his arm pit.

    I really like my gynea, I absolutely don't mind going to him at all.
