I speak for no one but me.

Nothing that is posted here should be taken as a substitute for medical advice. Blogs (and Twitter for that matter) do not constitute the practice of medicine.

The medical cases that I sometimes use to illustrate a point don’t strike me because of their uniqueness, but rather because they are all too common. That is often what I find most devastating. I construct these histories from a lifetime of caring for women and from anonymous cases I have heard along the way from teachers and colleagues. These storiesĀ never reflect a specific individual or single case.

  1. Dear Dr Gunter,
    I’m a newbie when it comes to social media. I was intrigued by some of the comments that you had made on the academic ob/gyn podcast. You had mentioned that vit D defiency may be a “pearl” with respect to some of the vulvar defiencies. I ordered my first Vit D level on a 42 year old with recalcitrant LS yesterday. For my own edification, do you have a reference for the link between vit d and vulvar disease. You mentioned that you have a number of practical handouts that you give your patients regarding pelvic pain and vulvar diseases. I was wondering if there was a way that you could send them to me as pdf’s. As well you had mentioned a variety of compounded topical meds that you prescribe. Could you possibly list them and their indications. I am a rural ob/gyn practicing in the wilds of rural British Columbia. Cheers

  2. Dr. Gunter, would it be possible for you to run a post on the risks of antepartum and postpartum depression — specifically depression caused by pregnancy? My psychiatrist thinks I’m mad for wanting to avoid conception and mitigate what risks I suspect I already face as someone who’d be going into it with a mental health condition or three.

    Even if not, brilliant blog, and thanks for what you do.

  3. Dr. Gunter, anti-choicers have been saying that pregnancy is permanently healthy and wonderful for a woman and that women are better off being pregnant and having been pregnant because of this:

    What’s your take on it, if you have the time?

    Thanks, in advance.
