From another female. Medical care in most countries is great (most of the time better) other than real far out remote areas. Most of the doctor appt will cost you less than your co-pay now. The pill is readily available in most countries and cheaper than here. Worst case is see a doctor where you are, email the report to your OBGYN, have the ****** filled by a family member and than send it to your next port of call. It is all doable. Find out what your doctor wants from such a report. As far as the other question, like toilet paper, I stock up. But also it is available in most places. Guys complain it takes up too much room but you could tell them this. Worst case, like the very old days, "they don't call it the rag", for nothing. Gross but when sailing into the sunset one has to do with what one has. Make the cabin boy do the wash if he complains to much!
