Oh, I feel your pain. I skipped going to the OBGYN for about six years. I was terrified that something would be wrong with me and I just went at it as the "no news is good news" approach. I finally got really sick and HAD to go. I told the doc right off the bat that I had a fear of doctors. "That's okay," he said, "I have a fear of dentists." I think he approached me completely different knowing that. He saw how long it had been since my last exam and gently explained that most of things that could be wrong OBGYN-wise are almost always treatable if found early. I've since had a baby and been back numorous times. For me, it was getting through that initial exam to see that I was fine. I think that doc was helpful, too. He was very gentle and caring.

I don't know if any of that will help. Mostly I just wanted you to know I know how you feel. I spent many nights searching the internet to figure out what was wrong with me. I refuse to do that now.
