This dream takes place at the gynecologists office...I have a normal check up and everything seems to be in order. After we are finished up the doctor tells me there is something he would like to tell me...a secret my parents have been keeping from me my entire life that he feels I am old enough to know about. I was born a hermaphrodite. I asked him what they did to me to make me just a female. The doctor told me that I had a penis and a vagina and that they removed the penis at birth. After discussing this for a bit I asked the doctor if there was any way I could get a tampon lost within my vagina and he tells me that he doesn't think so but if I did I was going to die soon. I leave the gyno's and go to a friends house that does not exist in this life. Unfortunately I don't remember much about this part of the dream, but I do remember calling my mom and being like what the fuzz....why you no tell meeee?
Hermaphrodite deities, connected with the myth of birth
(19), are found on many Egyptian monuments: for example, the pedestal of one
of the colossi at Memnon. The hermaphrodite is a consequence of applying the
symbolism of the number two to the human being, creating a personality which is
integrated despite its duality. In India, this dual being—two sexes united in a
single personality—was the primal force, the light from which life emanates (49),
that is to say, the lingam (60). The myth of the hermaphrodite was also known in
pre-Columbian Mexico, in the figure of Quetzalcoatl, the god in whom the laws of
opposites and of the separate sexes are finally united. The hermaphrodite is,
above all, a god of procreation (41), closely linked, and ultimately identified, with
the Gemini archetype. Plato, in the Symposium, states that the Gods first created
Man in the form of a sphere incorporating two bodies and both sexes. This shows
to what extent he subjected reality to symbolic and conceptual patterns and
how—in a characteristically Greek manner—he permitted mortals to partake of such qualities as hermaphroditism, which were generally regarded as exclusive to
the more primitive gods (8). Psychologically, it must not be overlooked that the
concept of hermaphroditism represents a formula (which, like most mythic formulas, is only an approximation) of ‘totality’, of the ‘integration of opposites’
(17). In other words, it expresses in sexual—and hence very obvious—terms the
essential idea that all pairs of opposites are integrated into Oneness. For Eliade,
hermaphroditism is, therefore, simply an archaic form of divine bi-unity. Magicreligious thinking first stated this concept in biological terms, before clothing it in
metaphysical (esse non esse) or theological language (the revealed or non-revealed
world). The androgynous divinity was also known in China and in many other
countries (Persia, Palestine, Australia, etc.) (17). In the androgynous myth we
see, however, not only an expression of the cause but also of the controlling
spiritual energy. This is very clearly brought out by Ely Star when he says that no
happiness, unless it be one of the exceptions mentioned by St. Paul, can prove
satisfying until it is made whole by marriage (which is an imperfect image of
hermaphroditism), since the spirit always manifests itself as a segregated form in
the world of existence, and this is a source of suffering and restlessness (54).
Thus, the Hermaphrodite is not only linked to the remote Platonic past, but also
projected into the future. In addition, it is clearly a symbol of an intellectual
activity which is not in itself connected with the problem of the sexes. Blavatsky
says that all peoples regarded their first god as androgynous, because Primitive
humanity knew that he had sprung from ‘the mind’, as is shown by many traditions such as that of Minerva springing from the head of Jupiter (9). In alchemy,
the Hermaphrodite plays an important rôle as Mercury; he is depicted as a twoheaded figure, often accompanied by the word Rebis (double thing).

However, the dream is most likely based on a past event, a memory, or refers to a current need for healing, rather than a prediction of the future. Traditional dream interpretations say that if you dream of a doctor, you will have good health.
All things that flow and grow were regarded in early religions as a symbol
of life: fire represented the vital craving for nourishment, water was chosen for its
fertilizing powers, plants because of their verdure in spring-time. Now, all—or
very nearly all—symbols of life are also symbolic of death. Media vita in morte
sumus, observed the mediaeval monk, to which modern science has replied La vie
c’est la mort (Claude Bernard). Thus, fire is the destroyer, while water in its
various forms signifies dissolution, as suggested in the Psalms. In legend and
folklore, the Origin of life—or the source of the renewal of the life forces—takes
the form of caves and caverns where wondrous torrents and springs well up (38).
