Freaky female anatomy - page 6

I'm starting to get a complex. In recent cath attempts, I keep running into patients who have stuff prolapsed, holes in strange places, and generally not at all textbook anatomy. I confirm with a... Read More

    Well, why don't you check things out yourself? You don't know if you're freaky or not?

    (Husband) (knocking on bathroom door) "Babe, you almost finished in there?"

    (Me) (struggling with hand-held mirror and a certain lesser degree of flexibility than a few short years ago) "Just doing a little scientific research!"

    Dammit, I'm normal!

    Went to see a Bette Midler movie while in LPN school( before I had done my fist cath). While Bette was speaking of something COMPLETELY different from our subject, she said," The question before us is where's the clitoris?" I took that as my mantra, and never missed a cath while in school! however, since that I have seen many situations where that didn't apply. Nothing like standing on your head to get someone cathed.

    attention nurses:

    nursing lesson part i:

    1. turn on bright overhead light in bedroom to give yourself plenty of light to see well.

    2. lie flat on back in bed with mirror in hand.

    3. bend legs so both feet will be flat on bed.

    4. take mirror and hold between legs....open legs wide.

    5. raise head off bed...okay to prop head with pillows for better view.

    6. examine own peri area for future reference when discussing where parts are on yourself.

    7. okay to teach daughters to do the same thing so they will know how they are made there.

    hope these nursing instructions prove anatomically useful to you.

    stay tuned for part ii: physiology of the peri area.......

    Yicky.....or not......these things must be taught to our daughters at an age when every mother feels it is right to do. Why leave them wondering what they look like down there when in their motherhood years, many doctors will have the medical task of doing so....and so will their spouses after they become a union in that department of the relationship/marriage.

    Many women I have cared for do not know how they are made there. That should never be! The body is nothing to be ashamed of. Teach correct anatomy and physiology to your children "at the age of your choosing according to each child's ability to maturely handle such content". I wish I had been a nurse before I had children. I wish I had given them those instructions so they could examine themselves with a mirror long before they got married. For all I know.....they may have...I just don't know if they did or didn't. I would have made certain that all three of my teenaged daughters knew their bodies well.

    Fathers: give instructions to your sons about their own anatomy. Make sure they understand the physiology of their own reproductive system. Perhaps if they undertand the value of the temples they are housed in, maybe they just might respect themselves and their bodies more......and stop casting their valuable seed to the cheapest bidder. :chuckle

    For evey womb's eggs that fall, there is a sperm in the world to activate it into a life to be treasured, valued, respected, and loved. Teach your children to be selective about who they give their reproductive seeds and eggs to......not to mention everything else they can "catch" that may ruin their chances of being able to reproduce at all. :kiss

    Oh geez, I was pretty young when that movie came out, I think my correct reaction at that moment was "uh put a mirror where?"

    I love the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes"!!! I've seen it so many times since it first came out, and never tire of seeing it.

    How old are you? I'm 26 (but only for 7 more days!) and I remember when that movie came out.
