Often times patients come in for their annual Well Women’s Exams (WWE) and have no idea what their body is all about. This is particularly true in the adolescent population. Many times when a patient comes in for their very first PAP smear, they are anxious about the ‘unknown.’ As a Naturopathic Physician, it is my job to educate patients about their body’s. WWE should not be a scary experience, it should be a time when females appreciate their body and learn about it.
I was introduced to this incredible book, Body Drama by Nancy Redd http://www.nancyredd.com/ – which takes time to explain the female body and all that it may entail. I recommend it for my patients or anyone with questions about their body.
