Gynecologists are your best friend

When it comes to discussions about body, health, and wellness, gynecologists are indeed the unsung heroes who deserve much more applause and appreciation. Be it the grumpiness and bloating before your period or the random mood swings that leave you baffled, your gynecologist is like your secret weapon, ready to help you navigate the often tumultuous journey of womanhood.

But why, you might ask, should gynecologists be considered your best friends? Let's unfurl the reasons one by one.

First, gynecologists are the custodians of your reproductive health, looking after everything from periods and pregnancies to menopause and beyond. They understand your body better than you do and are equipped to handle any curveballs it may throw your way.

Secondly, they're there to help you decode the enigma that is the menstrual cycle. When premenstrual symptoms morph into something more severe like Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), it's your gynecologist who steps in to provide the correct diagnosis. They don't just treat your symptoms; they investigate and provide comprehensive solutions, offering a beacon of hope amidst the haze of hormonal changes.

Moreover, gynecologists offer a safe, judgment-free space where you can discuss topics often considered taboo. They're prepared to listen to your concerns about sex, reproductive health, and personal well-being, providing professional and empathetic guidance and advice.

Your relationship with your gynecologist isn't merely transactional. They don't just write prescriptions and send you on your way. Instead, they're interested in understanding your lifestyle, habits, and overall health to ensure they're provide the best care possible. They celebrate with you when you're expecting, guide you through birth control choices, and help manage the physiological and emotional changes during menopause.

What's even more special is their role as the custodian of your secrets. Your gynecologist is privy to some of the most intimate details of your life. In return, they provide confidentiality, understanding, and reassurance, making them a trusted confidante.

Quiz WriterJoselyn, Heywise Staff

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did you know?

PMDD is more than severe PMS

Almost all women experience some form of PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) every month. In fact, it's been reported that 90% of all women deal with bloating, elevated emotions, and a number of other symptoms that come right along with their menstrual cycles. When hormones are fluctuating to match your cycle, it can take you for a ride of physical and emotional symptoms. But for those that suffer from Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), the symptoms take on another form. They can be so debilitating that those with PMDD often make rash decisions, have emotional blowups, or falls into a deep state of depression.  PMDD is a serious medical condition that often requires a team-based treatment involving a gynecologist and, oftentimes, a therapist. Sometimes, medication is needed to control the effects of PMDD. It's far more serious than PMS and doesn't pass quickly when hormones return to a balanced level.

How to Play?

Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)

So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
