It’s now a tradition to make an outfit out of my paper shirt and paper drape for my yearly lady exam with my doctor (last year I had to have someone else 😑) #lobelesslady #girlswithtattoos #bloggers #lobelessladyblog #piercedwomen #tattoedblogger #pelvicexam #paperdrapedress #Iruleforever

Both are important for your health, but what’s the difference? Knowing the difference between the two can help you better understand the purpose of each test. Read our latest blog to find out more. Link in bio!

Another day, another hospital visit.

So the pain from the "diverticulitis" did not subside at all with treatment so back in we went (my fantastic fiance stayed with me for the entire 12 hours). So then came a CT scan to see if the diverticulitis had gotten worse. 😮 it was gone. . . but the pain wasn't.

So morphine 😵 ugh hate pain meds, they get me all messed up.

So, the pain must not have been from that... Hey good thing I caught it early then, right? Happy accident? The ultrasound showed it saturday, the CT did not last night... 😕

So we saw a 💩 backup... Lots... Entire large intestine FULL. But why? 💩 movements have been perfect. EDS making the bowels move too slowly? Won't know, the Dr thinks that EDS is only musculoskeletal... 😐

So an enema. . . (i have no words for how hard that sucked). But nothing. No movement. 😔

So a pelvic exam. (Ouch)

Still didn't show anything that could be causing the pain.

So I'm at home with laxatives and "just in case" i am instructed to finish my antibiotics and the rest of that meds cocktail 💊

12 hours + radiation exposure + embarrassing procedures + painful procedure - sleep = No answers

Did you know that your posture can actually affect your pelvic pain levels? Patients with poor posture can experience pelvic floor dysfunction at higher rates than those with regular posture, resulting in difficulty with urinary retention, pain during intercourse or constipation.

For more information on the importance of posture check out the link in our bio.

A pelvic exam might seem awkward, embarrassing, and even uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Knowing what to expect during this routine procedure and getting involved during your exam can help you feel more in control, can help you gain more understanding of your body, and can help empower you in a situation that might otherwise make you feel vulnerable.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ So, I’ve put together five tips that will help you be a more active participant in your healthcare so you can utilize your pelvic exam as an opportunity to learn as much as you can about your reproductive body - link in bio ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #pelvicexam #papsmear #bodyliteracy #reproductivehealth #routinecare #takechargeofyourhealth #teenhealth #sexualhealth #safesex #birthcontrol #stitesting #harlot

When it comes to Pelvic Exams, you are not alone in your anxiety! Honestly, while the exam does have a reputation of discomfort, don't worry, it doesn't last long. Your health, happiness, and peace of mind is worth more than the five uncomfortable minutes sitting in stirrups making small-talk with a person checking out your vagina with a flashlight through a speculum, we pinky promise! Trust us, it's totally worth it!

I realize that I struggle with explaining to people in the non IG world what I do with @cervicalwellness.
Many people are so taken aback that I say the word 'cervix' in common parlance that I donk think they often hear me.
.
Eyes glaze over.
Mouth opens in amazement.
They get a little fidgety.
Even most women I speak to.
Talking about the cervix, womens health and Consciousness in Gynecology is so far out of the reality for most people that it's like I am speaking another language.
.
But I'll keep talking.
I'll keep saying the things that make people uncomfortable in conversations- using the words cervix, sex, pap smear, hpv, etc like its NBD.
It's time we talk about our bodies- the truth or them and not only what society and culture 'allow'.
.
Fuck that.
.
I'm going to continue to blow people's minds, make men squirm, call in allies, .
It's time to bring normalness to our lived experiences as female bodies people.
It's time to open up conversation and realize that allllllll the other female people out there have these experiences to, and there is no shame in that.
.
It's time we talk about the Cervix.

A pap smear is a test for PRE-cancerous cells of the cervix 💜. They are really common and usually caused by HPV, a sexually transmitted virus that is everywhere⛑! You can protect yourself with condoms☂️ and the HPV vaccination💉. If you have an abnormal, be sure to follow up with your gynecologist 👩🏼‍⚕️. Most of the time, they resolve with little or no intervention but yearly pelvic exams are still needed💖!

🗣🗣🗣I have been meeting women well into their 30s that have never had a pelvic exam.
Here’s what you need to prepare yourself for the exam (pap smear or general pelvic exam)

Do you live in the DC area and want to know how you do a trauma-informed pelvic exam? I teach this exam to #nursing and #medstudent classes all the time but I think everyone deserves to know how it works! I'm willing to teach the pelvic exam for you to administer or to recieve so that you can know what an affirming, not scary exam can feel like.
And I'm doing it FOR FREE. Slide into my DMs if you want to schedule something with me at my Takoma Park home.

My favorite letter to get! This used to be a visit I dreaded because I never felt comfortable with the doctors I had, there was a stretch of FIVE YEARS where I didn’t go at all because the mere thought of it gave me huge anxiety. I researched OB/GYNs in my area extensively and this guy came highly recommended so I grudgingly scheduled an appointment. I felt comfortable in that our initial meeting was in his office and not an exam room and I felt a little more at ease when they handed me an actual gown and drape, the only paper was on the exam table. He saw me through a rough IUD experience and each time I saw him I knew I picked an amazing physician. It’s not a fun or glamorous appointment but it’s a necessary one. Just get it done! #papsmear #pelvicexam #annualgynexam #obgynappointment #obgyn #papsmearssavelives

4 days since the surgery and all is well. NO PAIN!!!
.
I am in spasm 'down below', however. This is also affecting my ease of breathing and how long I can do things for. So it has been a day of short walks, limited time spent sitting, not standing for too long. I've been getting down on the floor regularly to relax and take slow, deep breaths.
.
It's going to take a little time to really get back to normal, but that's ok. I'm on the mend and doing well and I know I'll recover.

I've collected a heap of brilliant resources around pelvic pain, pelvic rehab and pelvic health. See link in bio ☝👀☝ Or copy and paste:

I'm not sick or injured😇😆 Being healthy is not JUST about what we eat and how much we exercise.

Our bodies are a biological machine that needs to be maintained and nurtured if we are to expect the very best from it.

Due to my annoying sensitive "GUT" I decided to get myself checked for common health conditions via blood tests & medical imaging (scans and ultrasound). I recommend you ladies to get yourselves checked EVEN if you dont have any symptoms 👵.. I have a small hernia I didn't even know!!!! I had no symptoms. 💥Pelvic area - including the vulva, vagina, uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes; the bladder and rectum. 💥Gallstones - hardened deposits of bile that can form in your gallbladder. 💥Fibroids - non-cancerous growths or lumps of muscle tissue that form within the walls of the uterus (womb)

Australia is very generous with bulk billing why not use it.

I wrote about the road to pelvic surgery.

Medical misdiagnosis, manginas and all.

I can laugh now, but I assure you, this hasn't been funny.

I don’t wanna go to the hospital....


After 37weeks, the Dr’s Pelvic-exam became too painful.


I said “I wanna go to the hospital as many time as possible to meet my lovely baby through the echo❤️”

And I thought the words are very motherchic.・

Now, I am totally wanna go there.... #PictureDiary #Illustration #Maternity #pregnant #Childcare #pregnancy #pregnantlife #babyshower #momokoyamada #coachella #WaterBaby #cartoon #mother #mom #baby #bumpdate #bumplove #bump #prenatalcare #prenatalcheckup #pelvic #pelvicexam
