Contains sexual abuse - GYN and PTSD.
I recently was seen by my gynecologist for a possible STD,
The first time I was seen it was dismissed as nothing, the second time I was seen it was confirmed, definite STD.
I had to be treated for my STD with a "acid" of some sort to remove the growths.
Not only was the fact that I had to have my legs open and have a doctor looking at my vag traumatizing enough, but the acid burned really, really badly and it hurt so much it brought back so many memories and I found myself shaking and crying.
I never want to experience that again but my gyno said I may have to come back in two weeks to repeat the treatment.
I will die if I have to go through that again
I have no idea how I'm going to survive if I have to do that over again, I was literally sobbing when that acid started to burn and I couldn't stop shaking, it's a wonder how the gyno was able to even get the acid on.
How do people handle PTSD symptoms while at the gyno's office??
