Since we’re talking Dave Barry, I think it’s only fair that we clarify that Beth was “not making this up.”
When going to the toilet in public bathrooms remember, every damn thing you touch in there has filth on it. That little paper thing you put on the seat? Forget about it. Wash your hands all you like, you still have to turn off the faucet, use the paper towel machine and grab the door handle on your way out. So whether…
If you can smell it, it’s IN your nose.
He’d also agree with the sentiment that a “Diarrhea Cloud” is an apt description of a “burning question”.
Yep. There was a reason that astronomers and ophthalmologists
went on TV to tell you not to look directly at the Sun and why we were so worried about fake eclipse glasses. Since everyone is different, you don’t know how long you have to stare at the Sun to damage your eyes until you have already done it.
I believe, and I think Dave Barry would back me up, that “Diarrhea Cloud” would make an excellent band name.
Maybe read the sentence immediately before the one you quoted.
I receive health insurance through my employer (a university) so I haven’t had much call to look into the ACA. But recently my spouse and I went online to check out health coverage for her as an alternative to her PPO (it’s a long story, there was some accounting chicanery going on, we thought she was going to get…
It’s totally normal to feel nauseous and kinda sick from the heat sometimes! I knew that it was common for first timers, but my wave of nausea didn’t hit until a few weeks into going regularly. Just curl up in child’s pose or lay down until you get your bearings again. Luckily, I went to a bougie place so the room…

Fix it (or make it worse) by watching this:
Yup, can’t recommend raising awareness of this enough. I had a leep done in 2013 and no mention of effects on childbirth were mentioned. (IIRC, I even asked and they brushed it off as no big deal) Fast forward to 2017 and I’m pregnant and just finding out all the things it can do. It certainly isn’t the worst thing…
So all things related to people with cervixes should be shoved into Jezebel? This might shock you but, basically half the population of the world has cervixes. A health article pertaining to approximately half the population isn’t some “women’s issue.” It’s a human issue.
“Vitals” is a health advice site
Thank you for the article. I just wanted to make mention that these cells aren’t just sent off to the black box that is the lab, but instead interpreted by a pathologist (a physician) by looking at the cells under the microscope. The results from the pathologist help guide the clinician’s treatment plan.
<3 I am here AND I am a fan of Alicia's work, so I'm stoked she's at Two Cents!
LEEP doesn’t reduce the chance of pregnancy, per se. It increases the risk of a miscarriage, which is why the OB/GYN’s usually make real damn sure there’s a good reason for a LEEP in a young and/or nulliparous woman.
I’m surprised that you didn’t mention whether any of the procedures to remove the cancerous cells reduce the chances of pregnancy. My understanding is that LEEP may reduce your chances, but I’m not so sure there’s overwhelming evidence of it.
