I haven't been very good about going to my OB since my son was born. I even lost his number. So I Googled him and I found out he now sells sex toys out of his office: things like vibrators, cock rings and… butt plugs. Oh my gosh. Should I find a new OB/GYN or is this kind of thing okay?
We’ve all been there. You’re making out. Things get hot and heavy. He’s got his hand under your blouse, and you can feel him stiffen under your touch. The inevitable is about to happen. And then you remember the condom in your purse.You pull out the condom and fork it over with a “I’m sorry but these are my rules” gaze. He opens it and starts to put it on, and as he does, Mr. Friendly withers....more
Many of our parents and grandparents were born at home with the use of midwives and what we now call doulas, who provide emotional support to pregnant women and can assist with some physical/homeopathic needs and education regarding pregnancy and the birth process. Doulas back then were not certified or professionally trained – rather they used their years of experience to assist others....more
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could blame all oral cancers on smoking ciggies and boozing it up? At least we already know we’re better off ditching those vices. But are we supposed to have NO fun? I mean, seriously. For the most part, oral sex is pretty dang safe. You can’t get knocked up. It’s much harder to contract most sexually transmitted diseases. And it feels oh-oh-oh so good. But it seems all good things come at a price.
Women are friggin’ powerful. And during that fertile time of the month, our power escalates, especially with respect to how the opposite sex responds to us. At least, that’s what the research shows. This scares the hell out of some people....more
Allright, maybe that salutation is premature (do I have any yet?) Anyway, welcome to my blog. You are about to embark on the adventures of a resident physician training in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Intern year was a whirlwind. Now that the dust has settled and I am at the start of my second year, I wanted to take an opportunity to breathe, reflect, and share the experiences that have captivated my heart and my funny bone. Thanks so much for reading. Your comments are always and forever welcome....more
Dr. Lissa at your service, talking today about perhaps one of the most dreaded afflictions in the Universe, the urinary tract infection (UTI). Have you ever had one? If so, you’re probably cringing right now, tempted to cross your legs and hold your pee-pee in with both hands like a little girl who really has to go. Anyone who has experienced it knows that UTIs totally zap your mojo, and since they affect about 8-10 million people per year, chances are we’ve all been there. Here is the skinny from this end of the stirrups on that sinister, mojo-burgling coochie invader....more
With my first pregnancy, like most people I chose the care of an Obstetrician. Misconceptions on pregnancy, birth, and medical treatment surrounding pregnancy is what ultimately brought me to my choice, and looking back I wish I had a clock that could turn back time. After the half care I received from my first Obstetrician practice, and the negative birth experience that they provided with their misinformation, lack of informed consent, pushed birth, and ultimately my first cut, I know it was something I would never willingly go through again. ...more
Any woman can tell you that visits to the gynecologist can be - how to put this? - challenging to one's sense of modesty. You have not known examination room embarrassment until you have had an ob/gyn advise you on comfortable sexual positions in late pregnancy while probing your parts to see whether or not you're dilated, or had an obstetrical resident stitch his finger to those same parts (true story) while repairing a tear and announce it loudly to the entire room.
