A long, long time ago a few of friends were talking about their first gynecological visit. Each girl went to a different doctor and each one had a different experience. The one thing that they all had in common was that they were nervous before the examination took place because well, let’s face it, this sort of thing is never fun. However, it was especially uneasy for these girls because they were all virgins. Imagine never having had anyone (but your mom perhaps) seeing you completely naked before yet all of a sudden you’re expected to open up for a stranger to probe around. It’s a pretty unsettling thought for anyone let alone a young lady.
First Gyno Visit Stories
During her first gyno exam, Amy had trouble getting into position to do the exam. Things were a little tight down there and Amy was petrified of the whole process. After a while, the doctor asked Amy why she couldn’t relax and upon learning that Amy was a virgin, she wore a huge smile on her face and almost yelled ‘that’s great!’ You see, the doctor had been practicing for years and years and had seen a huge change in her patients. The girls were getting younger, had more health issues, started the pill younger and so on. Therefore, the doctor was extremely happy to see a girl who was a bit more traditional and was in great health. After that everything went smoothly and Amy enjoyed a long lasting relationship with the one and only lady who was ever allowed to probe her. In fact going to the gyno is a little less embarrassing now that she has known her doctor for so long.
Jess asked her doctor to be careful because she was a virgin. The doctor smiled and said that if she was worried about the hymen, it probably broke a long time ago while she was playing sports, riding a bike or horseback riding. A couple of minutes later, Jess heard the doctor say “Nope, it’s still there,” then he smiled and congratulated her. Now let’s face it, the doctor meant well, but the situation is pretty unstable. Jess comes from a culture where the girl is to be untouched before she’s married and having a man tell her that she’s intact is not the most comforting thing in the world. She would have preferred that he didn’t say anything at all. Even though there was nothing traumatic about her experience, she wasn’t interested in going to the gyno for a long time after that.
When Julia’s doctor realized that she was 17 years old and a virgin, she lectured her about how she’s an adult and it’s time she becomes sexually active- although she should use her common sense and use protection. The doctor even dscussed different types of protection and birth control with her. Julia was mortified and switched to a male doctor over the age of fifty because she felt that he would probably be a little more conservative. This happened around 1995 when it wasn’t a wonder for a seventeen year old to be a virgin. Things may have changed a little now but we have to give Jess credit in the fact that she wanted to wait until she was in a serious relationship to become active.
Although all three girls had a different experience during her first visit to the gynecologist, all three started out scared out of their minds and to this day get very nervous about their checkups. In fact they’re so shaken up and embarrassed about it that after each checkup they meet up to treat themselves to some ice cream. It makes me wonder, do men feel the same way after a prostate exam?
