Went to the gynecologist this morning. It wasn’t so bad at first; there were only three women and they were on the other side of the room. Then as more time went by (the doc was held up in surgery), more women started showing up till it was a pretty full waiting room. My anxiety level definitely increased some. I was so thankful that no one asked me why I (a guy and alone) was there. Once I got called back, the nurse was really great and funny which helped A LOT. The exam is always awkward, but my doctor is really chill and was excited that I was doing so well. She also said I could come back every two years which is cool.
It’s important to get tested!
