A Therapist Told Me I Had a Demon in My Vag

A story of a uterine exorcism

Vaginal health is super important. When women tell me they haven’t been to gyno in X amount of years, I usually go off on a rant and guilt trip them (meanwhile I haven’t been to the dentist in like four years, myself, so?). How else would we know everything is okay in our holes… just because there isn’t pain or a funky smell or weird discharge doesn’t mean everything in there is peachy. I don’t want to make other women paranoid, but going to the gyno every year and getting a thorough exam will give you piece of mind.

Some women choose to go the natural, spiritual route when it comes to their bodies. Things like peppermint oil for headaches, meditation for anxiety, and coconut oil for everything ever. Of course you can combine both Western and Eastern medicine for self-care. I mean, I know people who go to doctors, but also get reiki or acupuncture.

Carolyn, an Australian woman, has been struggling with a slew of medical issues her entire life, including endometriosis (a very painful disease where kind of tissue that normally grows inside the uterus grows outside the uterus). She went to a retreat in Thailand and she gave Eastern medicine for a whirl for her uterine affliction.
