"Your uterus is perfect" he told me. Feeling somewhat pious, I began to dress. That wasn't so bad, I thought. Then the nurse came back to tell me about an at-home "stool" test. She gave no directions and when I asked the doctor he said: "it's self-explanatory." It was a cardboard square that opened up for shmears of you-know-what. And it was the most disgusting thing that I've ever done. However, it's not the worst thing I've ever done. That would be what happened today, when I gave it to an in-house messenger for delivery back to the doctor's office.
