Do you take your socks off for ...

I just read another question about Gynecologists and it got me thinking about a topic that came up on Oprah a few years back. It was whether or not you should take your shoes and/or socks off for your yearly exam. I asked my OB/GYN which was "proper etiquette", and he said it's whatever you are comfortable with.



Which do you do? Do you take 'em off, or leave 'em on?
(I take off my shoes and leave on my socks)

  • I keep my socks on because I hate for my feet to get cold. Sometimes I sleep with socks on.

  • Depends on when my yearly is...it's usually in the summer and I despise socks and shoes, so I wear flip flops and that usually leaves me sockless, lol!

  • It depends on what my toes or socks happen to look like on that particular day. Usually I think I left the socks on.
