I know it is their job

but do you ever get really embarrassed talking with the doctor?

I am doing biweekly check ups now and one week I had hemorrhoid problems, the next week I had a bacterial infection after sex and needed antibiotics, and today I had to go because they thought I was leaking amniotic fluid and when he peered down below all he could see was a huge yeast infection due to the antibiotics. I'm afraid to ever see my poor doctor in public! hahaha
Like I said, I know it is their job and they get paid to deal with stuff like this but does any one else ever get horribly embarrassed?

  • naw....he has seen my goods, dug around with tools and fingers in my goods. How much more embarrasing could things get. My doctor is funny and very easy to talk to. I like him a lot!

  • Nope, not anymore! After I was pregnant with my daughter, its very easy for me to talk to my doctor, and be comfortable while him perfoming a pap/vaginal ultrasound on me! We actually talk about our daily lives as if nothing is going on down below lol*... It really doesn't bother me one bit anymore!
