Do's and Don'ts: #1

I have decided to give some do's and don'ts for anyone who is going through infertility or just trying to get pregnant.

Do trim up when you go to the doctor. Trim everytime you go. You never know whent they want to 'take a look' down there. I went once just knowing they were only going to do bloodwork. They decided that they needed to do an exam as well. I wasn't prepared mentally but especially physically. I tried to explain that to the nurse. She told me that he has seen much worse. That still didn't help me. I want to be remembered as 'the one with everything trimmed!'

Don't use K-Yjelly or any lubricant like it if you are trying to get pregnant. I learn this after a year of trying. My doctor looked at me like I was stupid. It isn't on anything. Noone had told me. But now I know.

If you have any do's and don'ts please do share. I will work on posting them once a week.

I agree with the trim. I just feel like if he has to look at them all day, I can try to make my few minutes a little bit more pleasant. But as your nurse said, they've seen it all. And I hope, hope, hope they pay it no attention.
