I have issues with modesty. Long-standing issues. I didn't even like to change my clothes during gym class!
Anyway, my entire adult life, I have dreaded vaginal exams. Before I get one, I am nervous, sweaty and otherwise uncomfortable. The anxiety that comes from having someone poke and prod your lady bits is incomparable.
Everybody says that once you give birth, modesty becomes a thing of the past. While I don't think this will be entirely true for someone like myself, I will say that for the first time in many years, I just sat down and waited. No hyperventilating, etc. This is a proud moment for me, ha! And, might I add, it was literally the quickest exam I have ever had!
