I am a 19 year old girl and I was severly constipated in higschool. I never told anyone about it but Im pretty sure I have a hemarroid now. It doesnt bother me unless i get a bit constipated though. I have always had trouble with my stomach throughout the years. I would always get constipated, and then i would have a stomachache and get diarehha and then severly constipated for a few days with bloating and gas. Ok thats my confession but i also have to say that as much as i want to, I can't tell anyone about it. i am SOOO embarrased to admit this since i am soo young and have never had any experience with any of this. Whenever i go for a physical the doctor just talks to me and doesnt check anything but the vitals. I have never had a pelvic exam or a rectal exam and he never even asks me about my bowel habits. I have never even given a urine sample. I am also not comfortable being naked in front of people since i have never even had a boyfriend. I know i should probably tell someone about my bowels cuz it is driving me crazy but im pretty sure he would definately do a rectal exam if i do and when im at home i tell myself that i can tell the doctor anything and that any exam is for myy own health but the thought of having a finger smushed into my butt is soo humiliating and i that also means that my doc will ask questions about my constipation (soo embarrassing) and how much i strain to poo...i am also afraid that he might need to take a rectal temperature or send me to a proctologist for a sigmoidoscopy. Idk the thought of having to admit to my family that im 19 and had this is so embarassing and i know they will make fun of me for having had a finger up my butt. Also is it painful? idk im nore nervous about being embarrassed by hving his finger in my rectum while nurse observes. it is so humilitating to think about. and what if he wants me to get a colonoscop? then i would need to take laxitives and get enemas or suppositories and spend the night on the toilet with crazy diareha . and then my whole family would know about it it and why i was in the bathroom for so long and then hey would make fun of me cuz i would have a 10foot garden hose shoved up my butt and thats all i would ever hear from them.. and then my aunt would find out and ask me how it went or if im sill constipated and the doctor would tell my mom about my hemmeroid and then my dad would find out and go on a rant about how i have to eat more fiber and i just get SO nervous about all this cuz i know i have to tell my doctor soon. I cant even stop thinking about how embarassing it would be if my mom needed to help me get an enema or if the doctor gives me a proctoll exam with a 10 tube.. god this is what i have heard about online i have no experience but i know it will be the most humiliating thing to have to ask my mom. oh god and the thought of having a rectal thermometer sticking out of my butt for 3 min while a nurse just stares at me. omgggg why did i have to have these problems!!!! oh god oh god i dont want a tube up my butt!!!!! i am soo embarrassed even talking about this but this is all i have thought about for years before i go to the doctor. I cant get a suppository cuz then my aunt is gunna wanna see how ig they are and ask me about my bowel movemtns and i cant deal with it!! help!!!!
