    [–] Do you see your OBGYN for breast health/issues? meg-c 1 points ago in obgyn

    Normally, it will be done by a breast surgeon or plastic surgeon.

    Thanks! Good luck to you!! We’ll see how my first period goes with this IUD — just spotting right now.

    Not invasive! I have very heavy periods and recently had an endometrial polyp removed. The IUD was the best choice for bleeding control and prevention of regrowth of the polyps.

    I’ve actually never ever heard of them, I’ll have to check it out. I definitely plan to take my doctor’s advice. But yes, I’ve had a Pap smear, a transvagjnal ultrasound, polyp removal and D&C under anesthesia, and now an IUD insertion... all while being a virgin. Quite the experience.

    Thanks for the advice!

    [–] Fuck you, I'm smart. meg-c 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    You go girl.

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Thank you!!! 😊

    I hope others don’t take that the wrong way. If you’re into casual hook-ups without meaning, more power to you. Enjoy it! Personally just not my scene, and that’s okay. To each their own, right?

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    That’s the plan. I consider myself to be very liberal, unlike much of my upbringing. If someone wants to have causal flings? Go for it, I support you... be safe and have fun. I know sex is a natural desire and can be amazing. Personally, I’m not into causal hookups (obviously). I’m not dead set on waiting until marriage, but I do want it to be with someone I care about. If the time comes and I’m comfortable, I’ll go for it.

    Well, the presence (or lack thereof) of a hymen does not indicate sexually activity. It’s not possible for my gynecologist to tell I’m a virgin or not just but look alone. Some people have very little hymen tissue. I use tampons, have had Pap smears and speculum exams...

    I have had very heavy periods and an endometrial polyp. I got an IUD because my gynecologist thought it would be the best solution to control my bleeding and prevent the growth of new polyps.

    [–] Giving 10am meds with 7:45 insulin? meg-c 8 points ago in nursing

    Personally at my facility, we can (and do) do it. We can do medications with two hours on either side — for example, 0900 medications can be given between 0700 and 1100, except IV abx which you have a one hour time frame and vanco, which is 30 minutes. Most people I know give 2200 heparin at 2000 on the dot.

    Obviously you use your best judgement. If it’s a once daily, sure. If it’s once in the morning and once at night, probably. If it’s a TID, QID, pain medication or other closely timed med, we check when was the last time they had the medication and if they’re “too close”.

    That’s too funny! I mean, not that it hurt but that she was so honest with you. It’s refreshing when providers are truthful and personable.

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 3 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Best of luck in your future! She’s amazing and I hope to emulate her care in my practices.

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I agree, as I get older I’m definitely becoming more open and honest with myself and others. I hope that one day I can emulate what she’s done for me to my own patients. Wishing you the best as well!

    You really can’t tell. I mean if the hymen is intact, that’s a pretty good clue. However, many people have perforated hymens for reasons not sexually related. By look alone, a doctor cannot accurately tell whether a woman is sexually active or not.

    My doctor knew I was not sexually active because she’s been my provider for awhile and part of going to the gynecologist is discussing your sex life/habits.

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    It’s hard not to get personal with a gynecologist lol. But seriously, it was very nice to be able to open up with her and really discuss some of my deep rooted thoughts during our short chat. I’ve never really talked with someone about it...

    I hope you’re doing well now and I’m glad to hear you and such a positive experience with your doctor.

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Catholic guilt is too real. I’m not even sure I plan to wait until marriage. I’ve never been in love, so if I’m comfortable and ready, then I’ll have sex. If I want to wait, so be it. I’m not too hung up on deciding right now, just find to take life as it comes.

    Glad you had a good experience, thank you for sharing!

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Definitely plan to keep her around for awhile. I’m lucky enough to have her as a personal provider, but also work with her professionally (only a tiny bit awkward...).

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 3 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Aw that’s so cute! That’s how I plan to raise my kiddos, too. Open and honest, I want them to want to talk with me about things.

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 3 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I have very heavy periods and recently had an endometrial polyp removed. The IUD is supposed to help my period flow and prevent regrowth of polyps within my uterus. To be honest, I really didn’t want and IUD, but it was what was recommended to me and what was best for my health.

    [–] I had a coming-to-Jesus talk with my gynecologist today... meg-c 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Wish, that’s crazy! I’m sorry you had that experience. I think my doctor realizes that yes, maybe her belief is to wait until marriage so that’s what she did, but isn’t naive enough to think that everyone holds the same beliefs. Being in healthcare, you really have to be open and non-judgements... and I think she does exactly that.

    But yes, super unfortunate to need this IUD and not even for contraceptive purposes! I was supposed to get it while I was in the OR for my procedure, but unfortunately insurance wouldn’t cover it so I had it placed in the office. Honestly, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I expected (insertion, that is).

    Wishing you the best!

    Hey girl! How are you? I’ll tell ya, so far this IUD is not a walk in the park. Praying it helps. I’m so very lucky to have this doctor — she’s been nothing but amazing with me.
