Breast and Pelvic Exams
Posted Sat Jul 16, 2011 03:20 PM
Yearly gynecologist visits are important for a number of reasons, including:
-->as a routine check. You'll want to be sure you're developing normally.
-->to deal with a problem. There may be a number of concerns that lead to a pelvic exam. For example, if you have problems with your periods, missed periods, pain, signs of infection, and worries about development, it's a good idea to see a doctor.
-->Also, if you have ever had sex, you are probably going to need a pelvic exam.
Whether you want to see a male or female health care professional is up to you. Some women say that they prefer being examined by a female doctor or nurse because it puts them more at ease and they feel like they can talk more openly about women's health problems and sexuality issues. Other women feel comfortable being examined by a male doctor . If the doctor is male, he will usually have a female assistant in the room with him during all parts of the exam.

I sually do not care if i have a male or female doctor however, I had a really creepy experience with a male gyno once, shortly after having my daughter. He told me that i required a "full womens health check" and it was probably only a minute or two into the examination (which started with my rather large lactating breasts) when i noticed the large bulge in his pants!!! I could not believe he had an erection! Needless to say - i saw another doctor after that.

Eww what a pervy doctor! I don't go to males either because of that same kind of reason.

It doesn't change how creepy and wrong it is. There's nothing sexy about getting these exams, regardless of how much men would like to think so.

I had only asked my question because so far only men had been targeted as being creeps for being turned on.
