To describe gynae class in a word: definitely amusing.
Gynae ward experience? Let’s just borrow mastercard’s masterpiece for this one: priceless.
Female organism is one of the most complex creatures ever created by God. I would go as far as stating that her complexity rivals that of a male. Not only anatomically, but also emotionally/psychologically, hormonally, socially, economically (retail therapy, anyone?), etc etc. Women can be the main reason of a nation’s success, and also can be the culprit behind its fall.
So yeah, focus. Gynae class.
My teacher had an endometriosis patient who came in a few years back. According to her, the patient was a very attractive female in her mid-20s, married, with a son, and complained of painful menstruation. Upon further check-up, endometriosis was revealed. It is a condition where the internal layer of uterus (where menses blood originates) can be found on other parts of the pelvic cavity, resulting in painful menstruation. Upon further prodding, my teacher found out that her patient’s husband had a very healthy libido (at which all the guys snickered): coitus were everyday including on days of menstruation. (Heran jugak why my teacher trus assumed husband yang wanted to hump like rabbits, not the wife yang horny tahap pelik2, but whatever). One of the reasons of endometriosis is regurgitation of menses through the uterine tube into the pelvic cavity. Therefore, due to the, ah-hemm, vigorous nocturnal activities, menses blood took the wrong path and endometriosis ensued. (Ni teori cekgu aku lah.)
Must be one the main reasons why Islam prohibits intercourse during menstruation.
Other than that, abortion cases agak bersepah in this country. One of the documentary noted that 80% of Russian women have undergone abortion before, each around 2-10 abortions. Some are even as young as 15 years old. Average age to lose virginity: 12 years old. Piker-piker balik, dulu when I was in Standard 6, I was still in the ‘Boys Suck’ era. Mungkinkah perkembangan minda Slavian kids berlaku lagi awal daripada Asian ones? In that case, Malaysian kids, by all means, take your time to grow up, okay?
Main method: curettage. Simple and cruel. I couldn’t even begin to describe the ferocity of the procedure. I’m sure dulu kat skolah (especially girls’ school) in PE lessons you were made to watch ‘Silent Scream’, a documentary showcasing an abortion via Ultrasound.
If your stomach can handle pieces of snapped fetal limb and crushed skeleton smaller than the size of your palm, try youtubing it.
Gynae may not be so bad. Minus the abortion, of course. Let’s see if I could ever get the hang of Vaginal Examination (poking into genitalias has never been a favorite pastime of mine), maybe I could give it a real thought.
It’s amazing to see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear and…
