I Always Feel Nervous Undressing At The Doctors

    Yeah, I feel this way.

    Every time I go to the doctor's office. My step mom is a health freak and a nudist into health food and stuff like that. Since I can remember I go every year on her request to see our doctor. Our doctor is a friend of my step mom and so I get the works. I thought that the...

    It's a scary place anyway,

    because of the speculum. You are at your most vulnerable. You are there to enquire after your most intimate health. Decisions here affect everything about you.

    Check Your Modesty At The Door

    Why do they give you those gowns that expose you and seem to give you a hard time when you ask for TWO gowns in order to cover front and back? Ever since I had a bad experience as a teenager I hate getting undressed for doc visits. Gynecologist in particular. When they do the...

    After being taken to the examination room

    and told to ***** I always ask the nurse if she could step out to give me privacy. They always comply after giving me the backless gown. I quickly change hiding my brassiere and panties between my blouse and slacks. My doctor and the medical staff hasn't changed much in the...

    I go to the doctors every year

    for a physical and I have to take off all my clothes except my diaper. Even though my doctor is very nice and has seen me in diapers since I was a baby I always get nervous and self-conscious when I undress for the nurses.

    Even as a middle age guy,

    I know that feeling. If you have to see a doctor that you don't know, being told to completely undress with the nurse or doctor in the same room, especially when wearing nice warm and snug clothes. I do taking my time taking off all my clothes, but do do have that nervous...

    I hate going to the doctor I get

    so embarrassed. They know about my bladder problem and having to wear pull ups but I still cry when I'm there.

    I was also very very nervous

    as I was last week at a dermatoligist. I was there at the first time in my life and I had to undress complete. I was nervous and later on embarrased. I checked every centimeter of my body

    My doctor here in Paris is an older guy,

    and I've seen how he looks at me when I slip off my clothes for an internal examination. I get nervous, which might sound strange, not just for this reason however, doctors are scary people!

    I have always tried to stick to female doctors

    especially since I got married (my husband is not keen on me seeing a male doctor) and I usually go with a friend, but even so I hate undressing.

    I Used To Be...

    I was raised by very prudish, modest parents. Because I was only taken to see a doctor when I was either sick or needed shots, I never got used to going to a doctor. The only ones allowed to see me naked were my parents, and that ended about the time I turned 13. When I was...

    When I was 9 I had precocious puberty.

    This is where your body goes through the puberty stage earlier than it should. Routine medical at school then letter sent to my doctor. Full examination. Lots of pulling and pushing of limbs.(your bones develop quicker) then had a referral to a teaching hospital in London. Go in...

    My father always accompanies me to the doctor.

    When I have to disrobe it is in front of them. I am allowed to leave my diaper on until the doctor is going to look inside or needs to touch me there.

    Despite the fact that I've always had bladder

    issues due to a auto accident when I was five... I've always seemed to be self-conscious about having to undress at the doctors office for exams. Since I do have bladder issues and if you have read any of my previous postings, I wear diapers and that's when it sometimes can be...

    Uh yeah. My dad hasn't

    even seen me naked since I was like 6. I can't stand when a doctor acts like it's a normal thing to just walk into a room and get told to drop your pants. Maybe the doctor is used to it but It's not his/her body that is getting exposed.

    I have been to the family doctor

    and the pediatrician several times and although I know they are very fine people i always feel anxious. I am afraid that I'll get a b*ner when I have to undress (that happens all the time), and because of that anxiety I wet my pants a bit :-(

    It's always, "How did you get this scar?

    " And I just have to lie. I'll say, "Soccer game gone bad." or, "I fell." I try my best to cover the scars on my face as it is... You can clearly see my ribcage. The doctors say, "You should eat more protein, sugar, blah, blah, blah." I eat twice my body-weight in butter every...

    Well, not so much nervous

    as uncomfortable. I have had trauma from my past. If you read my featured story-called I got hurt saving a wolf-you'll understand. But it ALWAYS makes me uncomfortable.

    When I was a kid I always associated the doctor

    with getting a shot and hated the thought of having to pull down my pants. When I joined the football team in middle school, I had to go for a physical. The nurse took me to an examining room told me to undress to my shorts and she stayed there asking me questions while I...

    I actually wished I had more reasons to get naked at the doctors.
