I’m catching up on all of my doctor’s appointments and made two today – one for the dentist and one for the gyno.
Most people think I’m crazy, but I’m dreading the dentist WAY more than I’m dreading the gyno. The gyno is uncomfortable and embarrassing, but the dentist hurts and I have an irrational fear of going.
Am I the only one?

You are not alone, I totally agree. Plus the gyno is quicker, or at least mine is anyway

No of course you’re not the only one…For some reason I hate hate hate going to the dentist. I don’t have any reason for not liking the dentist – I mean there isn’t anything traumatic that has happened to me and I do love the way my teeth feel and look 72 hrs after the appointment, haahaahaa

Ohhh, I don’t mind the gyno. But the dentist is the WORST. And the appointment takes so much longer than gyno.

Well, your dentist shouldn’t HURT unless you’re having a procedure done, i.e. for your 6 month cleanings you should be pain free. If they hurt you while cleaning your teeth they’re not doing a good job.
I’m kinda surprised, but the “privacy” factor for me made me choose gyno. I’d much rather endure pain, lol.

I totally agree! I go to the denist when I’m supposed to (No cavities YET) but I hate it. I always leave in pain, gums bleeding, headache. Yuck! And the chances that you’ll need some kind of further work done are far higher than at the gyno. The gyno is uncomfortable, but less than the dentist. I mean, showing your junk to a stranger is never cool. But at least they’re not cleaning it and shoving sharp objects into it.

I don’t mind the gyno so much either. I’d rather go to the gyno than the dentist. But since you have to do both…such is life.

No way – though I hate going to the dentist, at least they numb my mouth. The gyno hurts every, single, time, and I can’t get used to it. Maybe it’s just me, but I absolutely dread the gyno.

I hate, hate, hate the dentist. It always hurts. Gynecologist only hurts when he takes a biopsy.

I HATE going to the doctor (any doctor, not just for the lady parts!).
I, for some reason, have never minded the dentist. In fact, I have been known to fall asleep at the dentist.
I would SO prefer to show people my mouth than my hoo-ha.

I don’t mind the gyno at all. It’s so easy, quick (umm, hello, the whole thing takes like 60 seconds) and always pain-free.
The dentist, on the other hand, is always painful. I truly hate it. I’ll also admit, it’s been a few years since I’ve gone because I dread it that much. I’ve had awful experiences with dentists poking at my gums and stuff. Just thinking about it gives me anxiety.

The gyno only takes two second, but a cleaning can be up to an hour! I stopped going to the dentist for about 5 yrs because I have such extreme anxiety, but I go to the gyno 2x per year without a problem. Good luck!
