GUEST ROOM | The Disturbing Failures in Gynecological Care at Cornell Well being

I graduated from Cornell in 2019. I write to share my private experiences at Cornell Well being as a result of, regardless of widespread recognition of the necessity, Cornell Well being nonetheless doesn’t have a single M.D. gynecologist. In February 2023, The Cornell Every day Solar described President Pollack’s lack of assist for hiring a gynecologist. Her assertion that it’s inside the capability of present suppliers to “diagnose and deal with the commonest gynecological points” is just not true. I write from private expertise to explain how deeply misinformed and egregious President Pollack’s place is.

My first encounter with sexual well being care at Cornell was after I booked an appointment to acquire contraception. The supplier prompt an estrogen and progesterone based mostly contraception. Though she talked about some attainable unwanted effects, she uncared for the chance of vulvar ache (estrogen-based contraception has been proven to extend the dangers of vulvar ache as much as 11-fold). She did, nonetheless, give me tips about how you can please my companion.

The primary, second and each different time I attempted to have penetrative intercourse, I skilled excruciating and insufferable stabbing ache. I lastly constructed up the braveness and overcame my embarrassment to e book a “Effectively Girl Go to” and write “ache with intercourse” as the rationale for my go to. I informed the clinician that I used to be involved concerning the ache I had when making an attempt to have intercourse. I used to be shocked when she didn’t conduct an examination and even ask any follow-up questions on my ache. As a substitute, she merely requested if I used to be psychologically snug with my companion (to which I answered “sure”), after which she informed me to “drink wine to chill out” earlier than intercourse. I used to be twenty on the time.

For an additional yr, I had excruciating ache making an attempt to insert tampons and making an attempt to have penetrative intercourse, and I discovered that no quantity of alcohol may numb the ache. I anxiously counted down the months till my subsequent annual Effectively Girl Go to. Due to the stigma and embarrassment, I hid my ache as greatest I may and informed nobody about it. Solely my boyfriend on the time knew, as a result of it was not possible to cover it from him.
