I was a US Soldier in 2003 when I was wrongfully diagnosed, by a 3rd world doctor, with cervical cancer. I was told to wait for the lab results but that I would likely need to have the essence of my feminity removed.
The day before my scheduled surgery, a happy accident occured. My so-called physician was out for the day and the director of the hospital attended to me. After looking at my records carefully, he deduced that my results had been misread and he gave me another cervical exam.
I did not have cancer, only cervical inflammation. (I was a newly wed.)
He injected me with the HPV vaccine and within 5 minutes, I was dismissed and released for work.
I come from "hearty breeding stock" as does my husband. I've never had issues with my cycles and have been looking forward to having children for years. We've been trying to conceive for over 5 years and I haven't come up pregnant- not once.
It kills me to think that the medical community will think nothing of spending billions of dollars on Viagra and yet balk at the thought of helping women save their ... I don't know, their self-worth. I feel like I've been gypped. I feel robbed. Like the male doctors think my femaleness is a liability and not worth saving.
