Imagine living in a world where gynaecologists make you feel comfortable in your own skin? Discussing ALL things vajayjay - just you and them! Cool, right? Well, snap back to reality, woman. Us ladies would rather Google our hooha problems than visiting an actual gynaecologist. Most of us do this because we fear of getting judged. Instead of getting medical help, we get moral policed. Seriously, guys, it's 2019 for heaven's sake! We need gynaecologists who think in an evolved and dignified fashion. Doctors who focus on the wellbeing of your uterus and not on your lifestyle choices and sexual appetite. We need doctors who offer their patients support, advice and reassurance. And, above all, accepting you for who you are. Having sex before marriage, sleeping with someone from the same sex, being asexual by nature, or sexually abused by your partner - none of these choices should matter to your gynaecologist. Getting the job done and providing quality treatment should be their top priority.
If you're based in Mumbai, I have some great news to share. We do have a short list of chilled out, non-judgemental gynaecologist to visit. Feel free to talk to them as if you were talking to your friend. They're there to help and I bet, you'll walk out of their clinic feeling lighter and more confident about your body.
