Example, you have your annual gyn check up scheduled. Is you hubby or long-term/serious SO/boyfriend interested in the results, in knowing whether everything is ok (tests, results, physical exam re any cysts, breast lumps, etc.)? If not, does this bother you in any way? What if it has been than 10-15 years since you have had any gyn medical attention, including pap smears, age-mandatory mammograms, etc.? What if you have current, and have had ongoing, problems in this area, or are perimenopausal, have wonky and difficult monthlies, significant PMS or PMDD? What would run through your mind if you were told not to further mention any 'girly' details relative to attending that appointment? What would you think was meant by that?
