It’s not like I’m particularly precious about my personal space, but I do have my limits. Today I took myself off to the GP due to a suspected bladder infection. Tests returned inconclusive. So my doctor decided that the next logical step was to give me an internal examination. JAYSUS. When I go to the gynae I mentally prepare myself for the probing around and indignity. This came out of the blue!
I shit you not – she used her entire hand and had a good feel around. What freaked me out completely though was the ovary squeezing and uterus poking. Bloody hell, I had NO idea the baby-making bits were so accessible!
I feel like I need a debriefing. I’m thoroughly traumatised … although I guess the silver lining is that everything is in order! God help me though when I do have a baby in my womb!
