“Every Woman Must Visit Their Gynae At Least Once A Year”
Everyone deserves right to privacy, of course, but that secrecy has left many women to cope alone, in pain, and often uninformed. So you must keep your embarrassment and awkwardness aside and be honest to your gynaecologist so as to let them make a proper diagnosis and consult the right treatment. She would like every woman to know that the unpleasant or throbbing pain during intercourse is a symptom, being too dry is a symptom, so you must share even the smallest details and if you don’t then the potential diagnosis would not be formed.
At last but not least, she highly recommends to not waste your efforts while looking for the solutions of your problems over the internet and don’t follow the fake and misguided facts on the internet. Taking proper advise and medical care is always the best way forward.
