    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...

    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 don't mind visiting the doctor's office

    when the need calls for it. I don't even mind undressing there because I know that it's standard procedure depending on what the visit is for. But when I was younger, I would've rather gone to visit a relative I didn't like than go to a doctor's visit, especially when puberty...

    I never get nervous, doctors have seen it all.

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

    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.

    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 wonder if the doctor knows that I want to be looked at naked?

    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...

    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 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...

    Check Your Modesty At The Door

    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.
