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!!!!

    You probably don't eat enough fiber, seriously. I'm sure you probably just have a bad diet. That's like the #1 cause of trouble passing stool.

    You need to drink a lot of water and make sure you're eating enough fiber in your foods, most people don't even get HALF the amount of fiber they should be getting.

    You should also try taking a stool softener every day, they wont hurt you.

    Also the doctors don't just "stare" at you. They cover you with a sheet and they only peek to put the thermometer in and then they put the sheet down until it beeps. They do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. As for having a rectal exam, no it's not painful. Honestly it's just a finger and all that aprehension is only in your mind. It seriously lasts less than a minute. I highly doubt they'd do anything more than that.

    Tell your mother if you want to see female doctor only. it will be more comfortable and she could changed new doctor for only your wishes. Or you can go find your parent's insurance to see if they cover female physcian might be the best for you.

    Really??? If your doctor has only talked to you during appointments you're going to the wrong doctor. First they should check you out even if it's just to check out your height, weight blood pressure and so forth. They don't do rectal temps anymore for the most part there are thermometers that can take your temp by ear even. It's also not like they just take you by surprise and not tell you anything especially if it's your first time. I was 15 my first gyno exam and went to talk to the doctor but my mothers an idiot who decided that's what I needed. Irregular periods so not sure why the rectal exam but the doctor didn't care that I wasn't okay with it. It's what they 'needed' to check for irregular periods. Yeah I wish I remember the name of the doctor now. The exam wasn't any fun either though they told me what they were going to do first and I've had worse since though not another rectal exam. The doctor might just give you an enema, some suppositories or pills to help you. I don't poop that often myself and often feel constipated but I don't get diarrehea either. About 3-4 weeks I have a massive dump and that's it. Right before it happens is when I feel constipated and unless I eat something that disagrees with me that's the norm for me. Every day or so isn't normal and don't listen to your family that's just the way some families are. One of them probably had to have the colonoscopy and they were joking about it.

    It is customary for anyone to tell a girl to see a female doctor and vice versa. But there is a hidden inner feeling in everyone towards the opposite sex, or same sex if gay. Close your eyes and think for a few moments being naked in front of the doctor (whatever sex you prefer) and try to bring out the inner feeling I am talking about. It might not be easy, especially from the amount of writing you did I figure you are taking it very seriously. But trust me, you will eventually get it out. Then think of what is going to happen to you and try to make it as an enjoyment and not treatment. It just might work.

    Lady: The nurse or doctor has seen MORE backsides than you could ever imagine so please set your fear aside long enough to visit a medical person for some help. You might even feel like kicking yourself afterward.

    Many girls and guys your age are very private about their own bodies & embarrassed to have another person examine their intimate parts. I sure did! Do you have female nurse or nurse-practitioners perhaps at urgent care clinics in your area? Please don't be too embarrassed by your body to get the help that can relieve your pain or discomfort.
