Dr Oz: Gynecology Advice
Dr Oz talked with some ER physicians about the patient codewords they use at work. But they aren’t the only specialists who have secrets to share. Check out the gynecology advice and dermatologist reviews from this episode. Find out about birth control delivery options and natural dryness remedies.
Dr Oz: Too Much Information?
According to gynecologist Dr Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz, there is no such thing as too much information when it comes to your gynecologist. She and her colleagues shared some stories from a recent night out.
Dr Oz: Pelvic Shaving Pimples
One patient was afraid that she had a tumor on her pelvis, but it turned out to be a pimple from where she had recently shaved the area. Now you know that shaving can cause pimples or irritate the skin.
Dr Oz: Birth Control Delivery
For patients who get nauseous from taking an oral birth control pill, there is another option. It can be absorbed through the genitals effectively, so you can try inserting it that way as an alternative.
Dr Oz: Condoms Age Limit?
You are never too old or too young to use condoms. Even if you think you are not at risk for pregnancy, you can acquire STDs at any age.
Dr Oz: Gynecology Purse
Dr Gilberg-Lenz said that like many people, she needs the chance to decompress and go over the day’s events. She said she never shares patient names or other specifics, and the chats are not about judging.
She compared her job to working with a fabulous purse, a woman’s genitals. This is a weird analogy. But she explained that things get lost in there and sometimes forgotten items need to be removed.
Dr Oz: Gynecologists Complain About Smell
There is one smell that drives your gynecologist crazy, and it is not what you think. She does not want to smell your stinky feet, which are right in her face during an exam. You might want to think about leaving your shoes on next time if you haven’t been wearing socks.
Dr Oz: Gynecology Dryness Remedy
There are many over the counter products available to combat dryness for intimate evenings. But this gynecologist said you shouldn’t put anything on your private parts that you wouldn’t put in your mouth.
