A Do or a Don't: Checking Out Your Lady Business

A Do or a Don't: Checking Out Your Lady Business

Last weekend I spent a giddy night with girlfriends just talking — you know the kind of night I’m talking about! In the midst of our conversation, one friend confessed that she’d never really seen her lady business before. Immediately, the other ladies launched into their own experiences on the matter. I couldn’t help but think of the Sex and the City episode where the girls try to convince Charlotte to check herself out in the mirror — even though she was incredibly uncomfortable, she went through with it!

Personally, I think the more knowledge you have about your body the better, but is grabbing a mirror over-the-top? Have you ever examined yourself down there? Or does the idea make you squirm?

Yeah I've seen my lady parts. I'm pretty conscious of what goes on down there. It's my body and I have to take care of it.

I don't understand how a grown woman can manage to go through most of her life without ever looking at HER OWN genitals.Hell yes I know what I look like, I first checked around the time I hit puberty. It's not gross, it's you!

My mom encouraged this when I was a lil girl... How are you supposed to know if there is something wrong with it if you don't know what your healthy vagina looks like? Its so important just to make sure its all good down there especially if you are sexually active. Plus I'm just curious about who I am as a woman. Its a very healthy thing to practice and all woman should take a glance. I hate when people get grossed out about their own bodies.

i can't believe girls could live their lives never seeing a part of their own body! i had a book about periods when i was younger and it encouraged the reader to look at themselves in the mirror. it also answered questions about the variety of shapes and angles...what's common. even discussing things like discharge. i feel lucky to have known information that otherwise i wouldn't have received anywhere else.why would anyone feel afraid of themselves? you're body is YOU! and for anyone who shies away from themselves needs to be more accepting. love yourself, it's the only body you have.

Yeah, I have and I agree with everyone else that it's important to look for yourself. It's just another body part, what's the difference?

Oh gosh I remember the first time I checked I was 8 and I was so traumatized I seriously haven't done it again until two weeks ago.. and I'm 19 now. But I guess that's why I'm trying to get used to it. :P I know I have to. It's just.. ew.

That's like not knowing what your boobs or your ass looks like, it's totally normal.

I think it's a definite do. You should know what you look like and how everything works down there! I first got curious about this when I was ten, and I'm definitely older now and know some of my friends who have never even looked down there..

This would seem like a legit thing if you were still pretty young, but it's sad to me that you would be a grown woman and have no idea at all- especially for the gynecological health reason. However, if you weren't very sexually active or wore pads rather than tampons, I guess I could see how you wouldn't know the details. I'm glad I know the details!

Its yours!!! If you aren't willing to check out your goods, then why should anybody else! Take control of your own body!

Knowing what my hoo-ha looks like from a personal perspective is super-important... What if something changes and you don't know? You can't always tell by feel if something is going on with your body.
