Coconut overnight oats topped with banana slices, a white flesh peach, regular PB and chocolate coconut PB, and a sprinkling of unsweetened coconut.
Don’t stress too much over it, I know it’s kinda scary at first but honestly once you get in and get it done it’s like so basic and not at all a big deal.
I always wash up down there and take extra care to make sure I personally feel fresh and clean, try using something like summers Eve to help clean up a little of it’s something you’re super nervous about.
When you go in they’ll weigh you and ask basic questions: height, family history, date of last period, and if you’re sexually active. Answer them all honestly, they’re not there to judge you :)
If you have to have an exam:
they’ll tell you to take off all your clothes, sometimes you leave your bra on and sometimes not. You’ll put on the little gown they give you and hop up on the table and you’ll have a sheet to cover yourself with. When they come in they’ll talk to you a bit more then they’ll have you lay back and start the exam.
Typically you’ll scoot your booty down so it’s at the very edge of the table and you’ll put your feet in the stirrups or on the edge padding (whatever they have) then they’ll have you part your legs and typically you’ll get a warning that they’re going to touch your inner thigh and then you’ll feel them actually touch your vagina.
Sometimes they use what’s called a vaginal speculum: A vaginal speculum is a device, usually made of metal, which your gynecologist utilizes to open your vaginal walls. The utilization of the vaginal speculum allows your gynecologist a visual inspection of your vagina and cervix, as well as a way to collect the cervical cells necessary for a Pap smear test
I’m not going to lie, if they do use this you’ll probably feel discomfort but it’s important for them to use it as it helps them get a better visual. If it hurts to much, don’t be afraid to ask for a smaller speculum, I did it every time till they finally put it down in my chart to use the smallest size haha, so make sure you communicate. Even the smallest one will be a bit uncomfortable but it’s brief.
Now since you’re experiencing bleeding and such they’ll most likely need to do a vaginal exam, just to be sure it’s not something with your cervix or uterus. If they find something there they’ll probably do tests more on your ovaries which I don’t have experience with, I only know about cervical cancer tests. However as for the exam there’s nothing to be nervous about, I know no matter how much I say that you’ll still be nervous, but I promise after awhile it gets so meh you won’t even care.
Plus if you’re like me, your doctor will discuss whether you’re team Edward or team Jacob while she’s feeling up your cervix haha.
The first time I went I was 14 and I was so scared I cried, I understand how scary it can be but trust me they see hundreds and hundreds of vaginas every day, it’s nothing they haven’t seen before!!
If you feel more comfortable you can ask for a female or male doctor based on your preference, I’ve only seen a female because I refuse to see a male doctor but that’s just me!
Take a deep breath and relax! They’re there to make you feel better sweetheart not to make you feel uncomfortable
women: *are killed, beaten, raped, and put down constantly for hundreds of years just for being women*
woman who is also a feminist: *cracks a joke about men on the internet*
men: ”see this is the problem with feminism it promotes hate speech they’re no better than sexist men why can’t i punch women in the face and why does the guy have to pay on dates #equalitarianism”

8 BEST TIPS FOR WEIGHT LOSS BEGINNERS:
- Don’t change all at once. If you go from eating crap and sitting all day to trying to instantly start running 10 miles a day and eating nothing but salad and bananas, you are going to get tired of it and probably fall back into old habits. Change a few things at a time (like cut out all soda and fast food and then ease into more intense workouts).
- Understand it is 90% mental. As a runner, I know that I can run a full marathon, but convincing my mind that I am going to run nonstop for the next 4 hours is surprisingly difficult. Same goes for convincing your mind that you, in fact, don’t need to eat that extra cookie to feel full.
- Make goals, but not time limits. Time goals are hard because weight loss is often so scattered and you will probably end up being extremely stressed the closer and closer a deadline gets. Goal weights/goal measurements are positive motivators but time tends to be more of a stress. Everybody loses weight differently!
- Understand that your boobs will more than likely change sizes. A lot. I personally went from a 36C to 36B to 34B to 34C to 32D and then down to a 32C where I have stayed. When your weight is fluctuating, so do da gurls. Get remeasured every 5-10 pounds and buy new bras accordingly. It completely changes the way your clothes fit (I worked at Victoria’s Secret for 3 years and I can’t stress this enough).
- Find what motivates you and hold onto it for dear life. Losing motivation is the biggest factor for people not losing weight. I don’t care if you find motivation in weighing yourself twice a day, trying to fit into a prom dress, or simply trying to be healthier. You do you girl, but remind yourself daily what you are doing you for.
- Know that it will become a habit! This is seriously the biggest thing. Once you can stick to a clean eating plan and a workout schedule for about a month, it becomes second nature. I don’t even think about bad food. Like the idea of walking into the chips and cookie isle at Safeway doesn’t even cross my mind. The option of not running and going to the gym doesn’t ever go into my brain. It just BECOMES HABIT.
- ENJOY YOURSELF! Don’t be one of the people that is just sitting there in a corner all sad eating a bag of lettuce. Eat healthy food that you actually enjoy eating. Do workouts you actually enjoy doing. You won’t be successful if you are miserable every day you are trying to lose weight. It can be fun, make it so!
- Love your body now. It doesn’t need explaining. You look hot now, you will look hot when you lose weight. You will look hot every day in between. Embrace it. Embrace the Glen Coco. Embrace the fabulous.
Absolutely love this but please please please don’t weigh yourself twice a day. I did so and it only created a really unhealthy and obsessive mindset.
