When going to the gynecologist, many women feel too embarrassed to voice intimate questions and concerns, preventing them from getting the information and care they need. It's time for a change. We've partnered with comedy host, Amber Ruffin, and her sister Lacey to create a web series empowering women to overcome the awkwardness, and confidently speak up at the gynecologist.

  • Episode 1: Amber Ruffin is not looking forward to her gynecologist appointment tomorrow. She considers cancelling until her sister, Lacey Lamar, reminds her that doctors aren't there for judging—that's what sisters are for.
  • Episode 2: While waiting for the doctor, Amber recounts the most awkward gynecologist visit there ever was...her very first. A dumbfounded Lacey assures her sister that while she'll probably be awkward forever, going to the gynecologist doesn't have to be.
  • Episode 3: After a night of frantically searching her symptoms online, Amber learns that when something doesn't feel right in her body, it's best to step away from the search bar and talk to your doctor instead.
  • Episode 4: Amber makes a list of all the questions about women's health that she's been too embarrassed to ask over the years. And realizes, maybe her gynecologist is a more credible source than wherever she previously got her information.
  • Episode 5: In the midst of a heated board game, Amber learns how important it is for her friend Jenny to find a doctor who understands her needs. And Jenny learns how bad Amber is at board games.
  • Episode 6: Amber drops in on her sister Lacey's gynecologist appointment to impart some of the newfound wisdom and confidence she's acquired over the past 5 episodes. Learning and growing is a lifelong process for all of us.'s your body. Ask questions. Stay informed
