Lena Schulze* was often at the gynecologist. The first Time she was 14 and found it to be quite embarrassing. Meanwhile, Schulze is 27 and says she got used to it, the appointments with the gynaecologist had become the annual Routine.

In the case of the woman doctor stopped to ask questions such as: With a condom can happen, but nothing, is it?
