Reclaiming the OB/GYN Experience

I was link surfing today and discovered a project called Stirrups and Stories, which is stories women have shared about their experience in the stirrups. The images, done in b&w with signs, are very powerful. I definitely recommend taking time to go through them. There were a number that resonated with me. Going to get a physical never really made much of an impact on me. I remember not wanting my first exam, but in order to get birth control, my doctor made me. I was angry at the time, but I realized it was important. Now I am angry again at how she dealt with the situation. I suppose it is too late now but if I were to make a sign for this project, I think mine might read,
If I am saying no, please don’t blackmail me with my birth control.
This site is a great companion to the horror stories posted over at ‘My OB Said WHAT?!?‘. Anyways, share and enjoy!
