Girl Talk: Embarrassing Questions for the Gynecologist

Discussion took place on August 18, 2011 -- 12:00 pm

Hosted by Yon Sook Kim, MD

For some women, visiting the gynecologist is about as appealing as root canal surgery. But hopefully every year, we muster the strength to endure the awkwardness of the annual gynecological exam. Who can blame women for shying away from prolonging the experience by then asking the physician a series of embarrassing personal questions? Now you will have the opportunity to address some of these issues from the privacy of your own home during Cooper’s Health eTalk on Thursday, August 18 from Noon-12:30 p.m. Gynecologist Yon Sook Kim, MD, will be on hand to answer your questions about female health – no matter how embarrassing. And remember, questions can be submitted anonymously.
