Gynecologists Reveal The 11 Patient Habits That Annoy Them Most

Mar | 254 sharesStefan Armitage

Gynecologists don't have the most desired job in the world do they really? I mean spending all day every day staring and inspecting vaginas at such a close proximity can't be easy. Its fine for those that take good care of them and groom and maintain them well, but for those nasty lot that just don't care... well, yikes!

And if you don't think gynecologists have got their work cut out, check out the weird things women did to their vaginas in 2017:

So having said that ladies, why do we insist on making it that little bit more difficult for them? But we all do it, and we all ask and behave in the same way, and just because they're used to it... they may not necessarily like it, and there are a few things in particular that they really really hate.

1. The ladies that cancel their appointments because they're on their period

(I don't get this one) But they don't care, a little heads up is fine but don't go all out and cancel, vaginas do their thing.

2. Repeatedly having to ask the patient to move down the table

alt

They know its uncomfortable, they know you're self-conscious - but it's the same every time you go in.

3. Them insisting on bringing your partner into the room

This is not a romantic thing for a couple to do, this is not a chance for you to 'have a look' or spend more time with her. Give her a bit of space, come on.

4. Referring to Google as a doctor

alt

Google will not answer your questions! Sorry.

5. The expectation of hormones for their new libido

alt

It is nothing to do with your hormones, it's your emotional issues with this one. And unless you're an exception to this rule because of menopause reasons, you probably need to have a look at whats going on in your life, rather than requesting hormones.

6. Not requesting a female doctor, when a male makes you feel uncomfortable

alt

You know what you need to do, it's not hard.

7. Grubby vaginas and legs

alt

If you know you're going to apologize and feel embarrassed, why do it?

8. When patients don't get screened for cervical cancer

alt

There are symptoms that are obvious upon the first inspection, but by the time the doctors get round to checking... its almost too far along. Be sensible.

9. Patients that hide and ignore symptoms

Don't be stupid and leave it too long, it won't go away.

10. When you stop taking your birth control because of the side effects

All birth control does indeed have side effects, but the other option that doesn't involve side effects - pregnancy, that's why you started taking it in the first place.

11. The non-disclosure agreement

alt

You're not an exception to the rule - honesty is the best policy with all medication (just in case you lose the plot completely)

You'd think that people would gather the concept of - you go to the doctor to get better or ask for advice, why is it we then defy this regardless and do what we want? It's only making yours and their life harder! They work very hard after all.
