Summary
Seeing a gynecologist is rarely an easy thing to do. Fear of asking a stupid question, anxiety, and just plain embarrassment contribute to the all too common scenario of a patient leaving an office with an unsatisfactory answer to a question, if she asked one at all or the doctor had enough time to address her concerns properly. Even the Internet rarely provides enough correct information. Ask Your Gynecologist was written for all of the women who cannot find the information they need to answer their questions about their bodies. Drs. Thornton and Schramm examine the most commonly asked questions and give valuable insight and advice about everything related to gynecology, including pap smears, the menstrual cycle, family planning, infections and disorders, pregnancy, and surgery. Each chapter is divided into questions so readers can look up specific issues quickly. Examples inspired by real womens situations are also included so readers can see that all of their questions are valid and worth asking. Advice on how to choose a gynecologist, when to make an appointment, and how to ensure that daughters visit a doctor is also included, as well as a full glossary and index. There is no substitute for seeing a doctor, but readers of Ask Your Gynecologist will find themselves at ease and better prepared to take charge of their own health
