Yes, women do require more medical testing and services.  Just like old people require more testing and services then young people (The entire point behind Obamacare.  Forcing young people to finance old people's healthcare.  Just like we do now with Social Security.)

And before any one goes crazy, from 1991-2006 I went to the doctor precisely zero times.  The STBX Mrs. Scout had a pap smear every (or was it every other), Mammograms every other year, oh, and two kids, which involved numerous trips to the OB/GYN along with 2 hospital visits/stays.

Now since then the tables have turned, but only because of that whole cancer thing I picked up.
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

Healthy women just plain go to the doc more often than healthy men in the USA.  That has been true for decades.

And there's lots of welfare/charity type stuff to get health services to wimmen.  Free pap smears.  Free mammalgrams.  Men, yeah, we can just die for all they care.

Do you really want to go through that kind of stuff?   =|

I'm just an old curmudgeon that stays as far away from doctors as possible.  It's healthier that way.

I stay away from doctors. They just want to make a patient out of me. I've met my insurance deductible 3x in 32 years. Still have all my own teeth and most of my hair and I've missed 3 days of work in the last 10 years due to sickness. Never had a flu shot and will never get one. I don't eat junk food or processed crap and I don't take a daily vitamin either.
I've been married for 22 years and she only goes once every year or two to get an epipen cause she's allergic to bee stings. They alway try to push her to get the routine wimmin wellness tests but she refuses. She tells them straight out she just wants her rx for the epi pen, and nothing else after height weight and B Pressure.
We eat wild game and fish, grass fed lamb, farm raised chickens, and lots of home grown organic veggies.
What we have here is failure to communicate.

Girl parts are higher maintenance than boy parts.  That's objective fact whether the topic is medical expenses, or daily/monthly hygiene.  Why should that be the least bit controversial?

Hatefact!


It is no longer acceptable to differentiate between women and men (unless it suits the left's agenda). Hence, chicks in combat, same-sex marriage, and other feats of malarkey.

Yes, there's money to be made (or at least there was) in "raising awareness" of various women's health issues, that goes way beyond 1950's prudish "we don't discuss those things" sort of taboos.

The no doctor thing is buying a lotto ticket. My mom did it. Buried her at 42. Fron something she likely woulda gotten over . Sometimes you get lucky sometimes not

It is much more powerful to seek Truth for one's self.  Seeing and hearing that others seem to have found it can be a motivation.  With me, I was drawn because of much error and bad judgment on my part. Confronting one's own errors and bad judgment is a very life altering situation.  Confronting the errors and bad judgment of others is usually hypocrisy.

I'm hearing about more and more people going in for non emergency surgery and nearly dying because of some doctor/hospital screwup.  A neighbor just had a knee replaced and then kept going back to the doctor/ER not feeling well.  They kept sending her home and finally she ended up in ICU with blood clots  :facepalm:

I'm pretty much just too mean to get sick.  >:D  

If and when my knees get really bad, it's a really expensive lotto ticket to go to the doctor  =|

There is a damned if you do, damned if you don't quality to modern medicine.

You just have to try to balance it with commen sense, and, when push comes to shove, figure out which way you want to get screwed.
^ that last bit is a little too accurate when discussing womans health and exams.

My wife had arthroscopic surgery on her knee (torn meniscus) and ended up with a blood clot in her leg, which led to a pulmonary embolism. Almost lost her that time but she's fine now.

It's hard to believe the doc's didn't explore that possibility with your neighbor as they are relatively common after knee surgery.

Medicine != Magic.

Contrary to what they show on TV and the movies, there is risk in every activity (especially medicine) people are somewhat different from one another and any time you you go cutting into, sticking stuff in, and/or removing stuff there is a certain amount of risk.

However, on the plus side, had I been born 100 years ago I would have been dead for 5 years now.  With current medicine, I am still alive and should remain the way for some time.
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.
