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 internal exam, they use their brightest lights up there. I partially stand up in the stirrups. But getting back to the bad experience:
I was 16. I was seeing a female gyno. First thing was no nurse in the room with her, Second thing was she was FONDLING ME.........I KNOW they are not supposed to open you up with their fingers for the internatl exam but those clamps. She rubbed her pubes against my arm while I was lying on the exam table. I felt dirty. And I knew this was molestation but I just wanted to get out of there and never come back. Now I have male gynecologists. But the trauma during mammographies and gyn exams still doesn't go away......

An integral part of a gyno exam IS the digital exam...using their fingers to feel what your insides feel like.

So sorry, this happened to you. If you need to talk about it, I'm here. Just MSG.

Male gynecologists are worse. Why would a woman go to a male gyno for intimate exams? Yuck!

Man just try to forget those moments I know it's difficult but that's the only thing you can do. Either do it or just regret for your rest of your life. So be tough and keep moving.

Guess I was mortified about what happened and didn't want to talk about or even think about it. I've had male gynos every since....and they for legal reasons have a nurse in with them which is reassuring

It's law now I think, in case you get a pervy one, a nurse should always be present not just for your safety, but for his too.

You poor thing, I would have complained about her, not just for not wearing gloves, she could have passed an infection onto you, during your exam, I prefer lady doctors, I think they are more sympathetic as for when I had my first examination that caused me to get an erection, I felt myself going red in the face, I just wanted to die, she did all the normal stuff until it was time to slip my pants off, even now I still remember it as if it was yesterday.

Man oh man! That is SOOO messed up! I'm sorry that you had to go through that. (well in that way) In some states there is no statute of limitations on sex crimes... You could still report her.<br />

I understand about the gowns. I felt like I was nude when I injured my knee, and they made me wear one of those gowns so they could examine my knee. Rather humiliating.
