    This happened from Sunday, July 28 to the late afternoon if Monday, July 29. I had been suffering from bad bloating tummy cramps this entire past weekend. I could not sit up without pain. I stayed flat in bed. The cramps would cease after a long rest in bed, but every time I...

    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...

    It's always awkward to undress at the doctor's.

    I can pretty much count on getting an e.rection at the doctor's, no matter what the circumstances. Something about being naked like that seems to do it. Even though last time I went to the doctor's I had a middle-aged Filipina woman examining me, it was enough to...you know...

    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...

    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...

    Necessary Internals

    As a very sexually active young woman my doctor recommends I have regular sexual health checks. I am extremely nervous about climbing up onto his examination table, and putting my feet in his stirrups. The speculum is extremely uncomfortable. I hate having anything not human...

    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 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...

    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...

    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 never get nervous, doctors have seen it all.

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

    Check Your Modesty At The Door

    My dad used to accompany me

    for my physicals, even when i was 14 and 15. The doctor told me in front of him that my package is smaller than average. This really cemented my self consciousness about my size and is when I really knew I was a small guy

    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 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...

    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.
