LONG before you get pregnant, you should have a gynecologist. A lot of strict religious families don't encourage women's health, because why would their daughter need to have her vagina looked at it? She isn't having sex, she isn't having a baby, she doesn't need birth control. The End. I grew up with a vaginal disease and I never even knew it.

Because I was going to be getting married, I decided to find a gynecologist so I could  get a check up and get some birth control. When I  went in, she told me that I had a tilted uterus, that I actually had a tail (my tail bone extended down to far and would break upon child birth), that I had a disease where my vagina did not create enough moisture to keep it healthy- which is why I struggle with it burning and itching so much, and that I had scoliosis. Yes, I have been to dozens of doctors for all sorts of problems and my gynecologist managed to catch two big problems that aren't even related to my vagina. Having a feminine health care specialistyou trust and like is really important because there are a lot of things that can go wrong. You can get UTI's, Yeast Infections, cancers, STD, HIV, and of course- when you get pregnant, it's nice to already have someone in your corner.

Shortly after getting married, I started having a lot of pain when urinating, my urine changed colors, and it smelled different- like food. I've never been a fan of web diagnosing, I wasn't pregnant, and I wasn't really comfortable calling my mom or my friends- so I went to my gynecologist. Her first questions were: "Have you had an increase in: Sexual Activity, Swimming, Hot Tubbing or taking baths?" my response was "Well, I just got off my honeymoon- so yes to all." turns out that all of those activities can lead to UTI
