Play, Pause and Record. Essence, PopSugar, MadameNoire… A literature compilation and reflection with Dr. Wendy

Do you ever Google yourself? I did today for the first time in a long time. In doing so, I scoured the first seven Google pages containing “Dr Wendy Goodall McDonald.” My findings made me smile! This is my birthday month and in light of my rise to the 37th year of life, I plan to adopt the following theme.

A Rose By Any Other Name… What else can we call the Vagina this Independence Day?

I had the awesome fortune to meet Luvvie Ajaji and Franchesca Ramsey recently. I was at a book signing event for Franchesca Ramsey’s new book, Well, That Escalated Quickly.

Speculum Sizes: “One Size Does Not Fit All,” Says Your Friendly Neighborhood Gynecologist

What Is Dr. McDonald Holding With That Glove. A speculum

I feel like Clarke Kent in this opening pic. On our Facebook page I recently shared a post about what percentage of women do not see their gynecologist every year. The startling number out of 1000 women was over 300. For some, the reason is misinformation about how often one should go to the gynecologist. Annual check ups are still

United We Stand?

Statue of Liberty Air Plane United We Stand

Living in our social media driven, information at our fingertips society, I find it easy to get desensitized to the things, often atrocious, that jump across my cell phone’s surface. Last night though, I got enraged. To recap, a flight was oversold, one of the men who was chosen to deplane didn’t, and subsequently, a dispute involving the Chicago Aviation
