Voiceover:
Dr. Dawn Harper has twelve years GP experience.

Dr. Dawn:
No matter how smelly, how pussy, how sore, get it out, we can fix it…

I have seen more breasts than Casanova so there’s nothing to be embarrassed about…

Too many people just sit at home worrying about what it could be, but believe me, we’ve seen it all…

The water bottle, let’s have a guess at what we drew from the bottle

Student: I don’t want to know

Dr Dawn: Faecal matter!

The minute someone walks through the door with that embarrassed look on their face, I know it’s below the waist and above the knees but do you know to me, it’s just another part of your body…

They are supposed to be there…

Have you seen the colour of this swab? oh my God!

You know, it’s fungus party time. Hey, and I’m telling you this is a rave going on down here.

Whatever it is, you won’t be the first and you certainly won’t be the last.

Hi, I am 21 and recently noticed some dark hair on my upper lip so went to get it waxed. After a few days it has started to grow back and I feel it looks a lot worse. What would you suggest doing? I have looked online and everyone says different things. Please help. I feel really self conscious now which is not me.

Hey, I'm 16 and my left eye is not as open as the right one right now. It was bad enough that I was in emergency for part of the day (6 hours). It's been a month now since that happened, no diagnosis, no medications and all the tests they did came back normal (MRI). I'm going to see an eye specialist in a couple of months. Is there any suggestions on what it is? I currently have Graves' disease. You think that it can be linked since I had a condition that was linked to it already?

I have been on my period constantly for around 6 months, bleeding everyday without fail. I have always had bad periods and have been put on contraception but none have worked (the injection worked for a while but then I started bleeding constantly so came off it). My GP hasn't mentioned any tests to me, is there anything I should be tested for just in case? Contraception doesn't work and I don't want to be bleeding forever.
