Going to the gynecologist for a yearly exam should be an important date on every woman’s calendar. Even if you don’t suspect anything at all is wrong, you still need a checkup to ensure you’re all healthy.
Some women don’t mind the trip to their “down-there” doctor, while others dread the visit. Maybe you’ve had a bad experience in the past that makes you cringe when you think of it, or maybe you simply prefer to keep your pants on outside of the comfort of your home.
Either way, it’s a trip we must all take, as messy as it may sometimes become.
These 11 stories from real women’s gynecologist appointments may make you laugh, while some may make you cringe. But they will certainly all remind us that the gyno can just be downright weird, no matter what.
Regardless of how embarrassing these stories may be, it is important to know your body and stay comfortable with it. While feeling awkward during your appointment is natural, your doctor knows what comes along with their profession, and he or she is most likely not at all phased by some of the very things that turn your cheeks bright red.

One minute I was stirrup-ed up, and the next minute my gyno is screaming at me to get dressed because we had to go into the basement of the medical center. I was stuck there for two hours with nothing to do except talk about my vagina to my gynecologist.” —cherrymaelstrom
