Why are women treated this way in the US healthcare system? I would like a gynecologist to answer please?Friday, March 4th, 2011
Why aren’t we allowed to make our own educated decisions regarding our reproductive health? Why do doctors insist we have annual pap smears when the ACOG guidelines recommend every other year and other countries have guidelines recommending it every three or five years? Why do doctors hold our birth control pills and even other medical care hostage unless we have this procedure every single year? The first question a woman gets asked at a doctor “is when was your last pap?” it doesn’t matter what we came in for. Men don’t get asked “when was your last prostate exam?” when they come in with the flu even though prostate cancer is more common than cervical cancer.
Why are women in the US forced into those stirrups? Other countries don’t use them except for surgeries. Why do gynecologists lie to us and misinform us? Many of my friends think that pap smears test for STDs, uterine and ovarian cancer but that is not true it only tests for cervical changes, it doesn’t even detect an active HPV infection unless it is causing cell changes. Why aren’t we even informed about the ultrasound test for ovarian cancer (most insurance doesn’t pay for it) but the cervical cancer test is shoved down our throats?
Why don’t gynecologists believe what you tell them? I have a friend who had an abnormal pap result at age 19 and the doctor kept accusing her of lying about only having had sex with one person. She is pretty sure it was a false positive now that we know that happens often in women under 25. Basically why don’t women have full rights to INFORMED CONSENT when it comes to gynecological care? And why do doctors treat us like children instead of intelligent adults capable of making our own choices?
@sunshine – You do realize that could have be an unnecessary procedure right? When doctors say they are removing “precancerous” legions it doesn’t mean that you would have had cancer if they hadn’t. It could very well have been a false positive if you were young. Look it up – that is why they are recommending not to screen so often or so early because women are having their cervix mutilated when it wasn’t necessary. And the women walk away believing that it was a life saving procedure.

Can spermatorrhoea lead to low testasterone levels? If so, can the spermatorrhoea be treated ? male 22 yr.?Wednesday, October 13th, 2010
I leak semen in my urine, on average, every other time I urinate. I have ocassional night emissions. I believe I have low testasterone levels because of this. I know there are treatments for low testasterone. Are there treatments for spermatorrhea? I’m a 22 year old male. Could this be related to prostate health? I’m seeing a doctor sooon.

Is there an epidemic of prostate cancer? It seems like everybody’s getting it but living with it treated early?Thursday, April 22nd, 2010
One out of 5 men have prostate cancer, staggering numbers. But it seems that as long as it’s caught early and treated right away you go right on with your life. Personal experiences?
The word I should have used is proliferation instead of epidemic.
I have prostate cancer and my treatment is: Hormone Therapy and External Beam Radiation. Is my blood OK to use for what ever purposes blood banks use it?
I can’t help any other way at the moment and wish to continue helping others. Prior to my cancer I would do volunteer work. Now I am too tired to do the physical work I used to do. Even driving my car has been too much.
Thank you everyone, it was so silly of me to think I could donate.
