The strangest thing said to me during a pelvic exam

She had been fairly relaxed about the whole situation, considering, and after taking her history and doing the rest of the physical examination, I was standing at the foot of the bed. She had assumed the unpleasant position, and I was cautiously brandishing the well-lubricated speculum, when she said to me,

Don't lose your gum, Vitum!

Hope I didn't look that eager...

I read about another young MD's experience, where his elderly patient peaked around the drape and asked, "Does your mother know what you do for a living?" :-))

I haven't done a pelvic exam before and I am actually scared on how will I do during my first time. I hope my patient will be kind.

Do you have any tips to share?
