I agree that people should be seeing a doctor!  Most of us on here are just ordinary women with no medical experience and the few DR bees should not be subjected to endless questioning in their time off.  Please take your health seriously ladies and go to the doctor if you think things are wrong!

I know I’m guilty of this, but, if it WERE that serious, then yes, I’d be at the doctor in a heart beat. I do know that there are many women here and lots of people to share their experiences, which is generally what I’m looking for if I post looking for advice. But yes, it’s concerning for anyone to rely on ANY information they get from the internet if they have a real medical problem, though I can understand how scary it must be to feel something is wrong and not have insurance to pay for the doctor visit.

i agree! you should always consult a physician. i posted a question because i had already spoke to my doctor and she said it was normal and not to worry. so i was curious if anyone else has had the same problem and what they did/were told.

While we are at it, could people stop posting thread about whether or not something is tacky?

@ILikePink: Yeah, I really think that tacky is way way overused.

I 100% agree with the OP.  I just finished medical school so I’m technically a physician, but I REFUSE to give out any medical advice on an internet forum (besides the advice of “go see your doctor”), lol!

I agree with the medical question stuff… but the “tacky” and ring size questions are totally legit in my opinion since this is a wedding website.

I usually avoid most medically related questions, unless it’s to point people to their doctor or appropriate internet resources.  I think, though, that if people are comfortable with the advice that they are going to get, I’m not going to say anything about their asking.

When I see posts like that I just figure that the ladies asking the questions are asking because they want to know if any of their fellow “friends” have had something similar happen to them.  Many people develop friendships here, so I think the ladies are asking their girlfriends here like they would ask their real life girlfriends.  I think many of the times people just want to gauge how common their problem is before they walk into their doctor’s office sounding like a hypochondriac.  So, I guess those posts don’t bother me much…

Also, the large number of the same types of posts come in waves.  Not long ago there were issues with so many of the Waiting board questions popping up.  Then is was all the Baby board questions.  Usually when I don’t want to answer certain questions I just don’t .  I just figure that this, too, shall pass…

This reminds me of a friend of mine. She works at a health food store and she told me how people have been coming in a lot lately asking medical advice and so she would tell them it sounds like they should go to the doctor. Or, she will offer them an alternative medicine, and they would ask if they sell it at walmart!

 

I think part of it though is because of the economy, people just don’t have the money to go to the doctor for any reason, especially if they find out it’s something that is actually minor.
