    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...

    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 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...

    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 was really bad for me

    when I was in middle school and high school. I always hated undressing for the nurses who always seemed to be young and cute. Plus until I was an adult I never even got to wear the gown... Just my underwear.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
