Dr. Donnica Returns to "The View"
Dr. Donnica Moore, President of Sapphire Women's Health Group and host of DrDonnica.com will reappear on ABC's "The View" Friday July 14, 2006 to discuss a topic relevant to all women: "Questions You Were Embarrassed To Ask Your Gynecologist". The majority of American women with health insurance will have a gynecologist as their primary care physician throughout the reproductive years. While few women really look forward to their gyn appointments, most women become comfortable with the routine breast and internal examinations. "Ironically", says Dr. Donnica, "women seem to be more comfortable with the examination part of the visit than with bringing up questions they think are embarrassing". "Rest assured that there is rarely something that you have a question about that your doctor hasn't heard before," explains Dr. Donnica.
This segment of ABC's "The View" will address real questions asked by real women about really embarrassing subjects. "The most embarrassing topics tend to deal with sexuality; abnormal bodily excretions like blood, urine, feces, and gas; sexually transmitted infections; abnormal body odors; body image and weight management; or abusive relationships. In this segment, Dr. Donnica and the ladies of "The View" will address some of those specific questions as well as how women can make it less embarrassing to bring up their own sensitive questions with their own physicians. "The most important thing," Dr. Donnica advises "is for women to know no one ever died of embarrassment. . .unless it was embarrassment that prevented her from getting proper medical advice or attention."
