Embarrassing questions you’re too afraid to ask your gynecologist

(BPT) - It’s that time again. The dreaded gynecologist appointment. There’s nothing to be afraid of because nothing shocks the gyno. However, many women are reluctant to ask the questions they want — and need — answered.

You know, like that unpleasant odor and itch after sex or your period? Believe it or not, spilling the beans to your doctor can calm your fears and get your problems treated. In fact, if something serious is going on, early diagnosis is critical. A survey of 391 women conducted by the Women’s Sexual Health Foundation found that 72% of respondents are uncomfortable talking to their gyno about “the sexy stuff,” and 73% would rather die than ask the doc, “What’s up.”
