Ok so I'm kinda embarressed even saying this, but I haven't been to the Gynecologist since I was 13 years old. And at 13 they didn't really do anything because I wasn't sexually active yet. So that's 8 years I haven't gone. I just received health insurance from my job, so I scheduled an appointment for next week and I'm really nervous lol.
It's not so much that I'm nervous about the exam, but more about what the doctors reaction will be to me wanting nothing to do with birth control. It's a personal thing, I don't like to take pills (I barely even take advil for headaches) I feel like I would forget to take them, and my family has a horrible history of getting pregnant within 2 months of getting on birth control.
SO what I'm asking is if anyone else is in my boat. How did your doc react when you said no to birth control? My mom highly recommended this doc and so I'm hoping she respects that, but I really don't feel like getting lectured lol.
