The disparity between men's sexual health and women's sexual health is astounding.

I just come from a sort of guarded place with the field in general and more often then not I simply lack any initial trust. I now dig into everything, ask questions, get other opinions, and challenge things that seem off or not clarified to my liking. Most of this stems from a terrible situation involving my son and the ER and subsequent stay :/

Its crazy because you sort of grow up under this impression a DR knows all, cant make a mistake, be lazy or rushed, or driven by motivations outside of you or a loved ones overall condition ......
the ER doc who removed my ruptured fallopian tube forgot to leave orders for pain medication after surgery before he went home for the night :o i got to recover with ice packs. that was fuckin SWELL.

he got back a couple hours later and went sheet white when he realized what he did. :o

Doctors are human too. To assume that we aren't prone to error, knowledge gaps, decreased compassion, just because of the title we hold is strange.
I get that, and also what seems to be an overwhelming workload at even basic DR offices

That can lead to issues in any field but i am just cognizant of it and tuned in more than before I suppose. I’m not rude or confrontational but don’t sit mute and nod my head and just rely on odds

My wife was telling me about a colposcopy. It's a procedure where they use an alligator clamp type device to pinch of a piece of a woman's cervix. Most of the time, they aren't offered any sort of anything for pain.

Men get every accommodation possible. Coming in for a voluntary, out patient procedure aka Vasectomy? Here a valium bro to help you deal with your nerves.

Women going in for a potentially life saving exam where pieces of their insides are pinched off? Deal with it.


Don't want to have children, women? Want your tubes tied!? How about no, because you aren't "old enough" or you "might want children SOMEDAY" or "You aren't married."


Dudes want a vasectomy? "Are you sure? Okay. Here's your appt. Take these meds before you come."


Thanks for coming to my rant.
Wait.... You're married?

my experience has been that most doctors DO expect to be treated differently though, even if it's subconscious. they don't like to be questioned on their decisions, and it's rare for a doctor to admit to a knowledge gap or acknowledge a lapse in compassion. sure, those things happen. yes, doctors are human, but so many of them put up an artificial wall of knowledge, experience, and medical school debt that it's hard to see them that way most of the time. :hs: it's gotten easier to speak up as i've gotten older and am closer in age to the doctors i'm seeing, but it's still a challenge. it was nearly impossible to do as a much younger woman with a geriatric male obgyn back in high school/early college.

and please... please please please don't take this the wrong way-- i've been extremely troll-y lately, and this isn't from that place.

this is actually false, if you are young its a PITA finding someone to do it because "you may want kids later"

The putting in the IUD was not my issue.
It was the removing it when the OBGYN yanked the shit and couldn't get it out.
It was the only time I legit screamed and cried during any pain. Then he sprayed something, probably lidocaine, on my pristine girl bits and it felt like he poured acid on me.

It was not a good time.
