    summers eve doucheAfter my Oophorectomy, I noticed that the nurse wrote “2 weeks of pelvic rest” on my discharge papers. I had never heard that term, so I asked for clarity. How ironic. You have your ovaries out and they tell you not to use tampons (duh… I just had my ovaries out, not really planning to menstruate any time soon!). They also say you can’t have sex for 2 weeks. Really? Is that what they’re worried about when you’ve just had painful pelvic surgery???? They also say you can’t douche for 2 weeks. Now there’s a word I haven’t even heard since the 70’s. Who knew they even made such things anymore???????????????????????????????????
