The magical mystery land of community health

I don't make this stuff up!…but I do change identifying information.

Delicious! May 4, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — lesbonurse @ 1:32 am

I had a long, entertaining visit with a serious oversharer.  I know I’m a medical provider and all, but some people really like to get into unnecessary details.  In this case, I was discussing vaginal discharge with a patient who was in the office for std screening.  She was having some white discharge which distressed her greatly.  She talked at great length about her personal vagina-cleansing regimen, which involves soap, a showerhead, diaper wipes and shaving.  “Girl,” she said, “I make sure my pussy smells delicious!”  Wow, delicious, eh?  Most women are happy with “non-offensive” or “clean.”  But delicious really goes that extra mile.

I was thinking about her words later, because I found them funny and incongruous.  It’s rare to find a woman who feels that positively about her vaginal odor.  Of course, this woman was going to great lengths to remove most of her natural odor, but at least she feels good about her vag, right?  Delicious!

  1. I am always surprised at what patients will cop to as far as their self-care regimen. I had one pt who was there w BV who told me she shoved an entire bar of soap up her vagina but couldn’t figure out why she was having a funky discharge. I just tell them to leave it alone — your vagina is a self-cleaning oven!
