I'm just curious because I've heard from many different people that physicals are done differently at different doctors so I wanted to know what happened at other doctors. What does your doctor do at your physical and how old are you?

For me, my doctor has me put a gown on first. My doctor lets me leave my bra and panties on. When the doctor comes in he asks me all kinds of questions about school, friends, drugs and my period. My doctor usually starts the exam by checking my ears, eyes, nose, etc. He usually feels around my neck and my collar bone and stuff. Then he listens to my heart and my back, and then he has me lay down and he listens to my stomach and feels my stomach. So then he tells me that needs to check my boobs and that I have to take my bra off. He kind of feels around them and then checks on a sheet how developed I am. Then he has me pull my gown back up and tells me to pull my panties down to my knees and he has me lay down and he pulls the gown up to my stomach for a few seconds and just looks at my public hair. And that's pretty much it, after he leaves I get dressed and leave.

That is true..but mostly we girls in our school would be in bra and panties off during physical examination whether by male doctor or female doctor. They check for mammary cancer ,vaginal cleanliness etc. This type of physical examinations are good for us.

I'm 15, and my physical is basically the same but I am naked the whole time. It's pretty embarrassing and all and it doesn't matter whether it's a nurse doing it or a doctor.

So he just looks at your pubic hair then it's over?

I'm 17. Mine has checked my breasts and listened to my heart and lungs (all while a gown on) she's had me pull up the gown to feel around on my tummy, then pull my underwear down so she can check for any cysts I guess. She's never put her finger in me though.

My doctor asks me health questions and weighs me. Then she checks my pulse. Then she checks my heart and lungs under my shirt. Then I lay down and she lifts up my shirt and checks my tunny. Then she makes me unbutton my pants and takes by pulse by my vagina and the pulse in my ankles and feet.
My doctor doesn't check my breasts or vagina but asks me if I have issues.

I'm 17. My regular doctor first ask me at family, school, isues and periods. Then she sends me to restroom for urine sample. When I come back I undress clothes and I keep only bra and panties. She listens my heart and lungs, take my pulse, check eyes, ears, nose and looks in to my throat. Nurse weighs me and measures me. I take off my bra and lie down on the table. Doctor looks at my breasts but she dont touch, feels my belly, check my kneese and ankles. Then I undress panties, doctor first spreads my vagina, then my butt and check me. She alwais exam me down there, but she never put in me finger or anything else.

My doctor did all of this to me but I was naked for the whole thing. And they ended up sticking a finger in me and it hurt.

When I started puberty a few years ago my doctor would ask me to take bra off and lay down. Then he would examine my tummy and I jumped because my belly is real ticklish. Then he felt my breasts and my nipples to check for development and for any lumps. Then he had me take my panties off, luckily I was wearing a skirt that day. One less thing to take off right? I flipped my skirt up and he checked my pelvis and my vagina. It didn't hurt when he was examining my vagina. Anyways, long story short after a few appointments of having to take off my bra and panties each time I would just not wear them.:cool: I thought ahead

When I get a physical I'm fully clothed. The most they do is quickly look at my pubes down my pants.

My doctor doesn't let me wear anything during physical. usually is him and one nurse in examination room. he ask about family, sexual activities, any discomforts in my body and if my periods are still at same time of month and normal flow. he gives a cup for urine sample. he takes a blood sample from my arm then listens my heart and lungs, take my pulse, he examines my eyes, ears, nose and looks in to my throat. He weighs me and measures my breasts, waist and hips. Doctor rubs my breasts for imperfections feels my belly, check my kneese and ankles. Then I spread my vagina and he puts metal object in it and inspect with magnifying glass then does same thing to my bum, then my butt and asks for poop sample. he waits
till i put my panties and bra on before leaving. i get medical report from him in three days.

Pretty much the same happened here except he shoved his fingers in multiple times. And when he checked my breasts, I was pretty sure that he wasn't just checking for cancer.

i gave a female dr. so it doesn't seem too weird to be exaimed.

my sister (11yo) has been exaimed by guy dr, but he always requests that my mom be in the room at the same time. i think maybe he doesn't want people thinking he's doing weird stuff when exaiming girls. my sister didn't mind, and she like that he said that she was mature for her age.

For mine it was pretty normal like everyone talked about.... had me lay on a table and then pulled my panties down and looked inside then touched.. the worst part of the whole thing was when I had to get up off the table bend over it and he put a finger inside my bum and vagina a the same time........... it really sucked

I'm not sure the assumption that the doctor was touching your private areas because he was a man is a fair assumption to make. I would never want to offend you, but doctors see thousands of naked bodies every year, and you probably think too highly of yourself if you think you were singled out for special, sexualised treatment. My doctor is a man and I've never had any issues. You are putting forth a completely sexist and inane assumption about a person who has probably spent more time training to be a doctor than you've been out of nappies.

I never said anything about male doctors. And i never said anything about being singled out. And i never said anything about being higher than anyone else. In fact, my brother is a doctor. What i did say is that i was uncomfortable with the way that particular doctor touched me, and that im not seing that particular again.I am not being sexist, you are just assuming:mad::mad:

Thats a really harsh shitty comment to make, especially when lots of doctors abuse their authority and touch girls innappropriately. Dont come on here trolling and slut-shaming someone into feeling bad about the way they were treat! You sound like a totally fake POS!!!

My dad is a doctor, and it bothers me deeply he is discriminated against because some women have a sexist fear of being inappropriately touched. What percentage of doctors "abuse their authority"?

You think that gynos spend 12+ years in medical school just to get a look at some beat-up poon?

You clearly misunderstand what "slut-shaming" is if you're accusing me of perpetrating it, unless you are somehow insinuating that the poster above gained some sort of sexual satisfaction from their supposed abuse. I am completely sex-positive, but I'm also anti-sexism.

Also, there is an apostrophe in "don't". You wouldn't want to seem overwrought, would you?

Ok first of all what kind of ''logic'' takes away from the origional question? We went from what happened at our last physical to some kind of sexist debate that serves no purpous. And second of all i know damn well what I'm aware of and what I said. That chloe girl took me saying im never seeing a particular doctor, and turned it into a totally un-supported, sexist, claim.

Its hard to believe they doctor would actually shove anything into a patient' vagina. In my case I have had my doctor put his fingers inside me. He was very gentle and told me what he was going to do each step of theway.

I have a female doctor and she's very good. I only had to physicals so far, and with the first one my mom was present. The doc explained everything she was going to do. All the usual stuff (pulse, breathing, weight...) and then she checked my boobs and felt and looked around the outside of my vagina. The second time it was just me and the checkup was all the same except she also asked me some questions about if I'm sexually active or planning to be in the near future, and to talk to her about anything related to sex if I want to at any time. She makes me feel comfortable about it all.

I've had to undress to just underwear and the doctor could see everything she needed to. Like obviously my boobs were growing she could see that and she asked if was ok with periods but she didn't need to look. That's only been once and at all other appointments we just talk about things that are happening to my body.

Maybe because my doctor is a woman and I have gone to her for many years, I didn't feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. She hasn't asked any uncomfortable questions yet, just the standard things I guess, about my period and that I can talk to her any time for advice if I need to when I start to become sexually active. I feel I can trust her and that she won't tell anyone else.

I'm always asked to remove my clothes and put on a gown after I'm led to the exam room. The nurse asks questions about periods and sexual activity before the doctor actually comes in and does the physical exam (breasts and pelvic). It's always a little uncomfortable and not something I look forward to, but yeah, not the worst thing either.

When I go to the doctors I get fully naked from the start. I feel totally comfortable being naked with my doctor even tho it's a guy, he's pretty young like 25 lol. I mean the whole spread your legs and touching my breasts is a little weird but it's all cool at the end of the day. A little awkward cuz I'll get wet so I'll be embarrassed but after that I'm fine with everything. I hear tons of people who have weird experiences and I wonder what i would do in those situations

before puberty, my doctor had me remove all my clothes in a bathroom and put on a gown, then go into a separate room by myself for a little bit. Then she came in, and had me remove my gown completely. She then did the regular physical from there, inspecting my chest and vagina. During puberty, all that is different is that I donít remove my down completely. I donít have pubic hair, so itís not really any different.

I had my first exam recently since moving. I had to wear a gown with nothing under. The doctor checked my pulse, heartbeat and weight before moving on to my chest. He held them for a little while then had me lie down on a table. The doctor explained what he was doing every step of the exam so I could relax. He checked the outside of my vagina then he put his finger into me gently. It felt weird but there was no pain. He poked for a while and I was starting to feel tingly so I told him and he stopped. He then did the same for my butt (without the finger) and talked to me about some stuff and we were done.

I always have to wear a gown, no underwear or bra. My doctor is a male, but he's really nice, he usually just asks if I have been having problems, and he's never investigated my boobs or nether region. He does check my back though (scoliosis runs in my family), and then there's the usual ear, throat, joint, etc. checks. He also asks about my family, friends, drugs, sex, and makes sure everything's okay.

I'm just curious because I've heard from many different people that physicals are done differently at different doctors so I wanted to know what happened at other doctors. What does your doctor do at your physical and how old are you?

For me, my doctor has me put a gown on first. My doctor lets me leave my bra and panties on. When the doctor comes in he asks me all kinds of questions about school, friends, drugs and my period. My doctor usually starts the exam by checking my ears, eyes, nose, etc. He usually feels around my neck and my collar bone and stuff. Then he listens to my heart and my back, and then he has me lay down and he listens to my stomach and feels my stomach. So then he tells me that needs to check my boobs and that I have to take my bra off. He kind of feels around them and then checks on a sheet how developed I am. Then he has me pull my gown back up and tells me to pull my panties down to my knees and he has me lay down and he pulls the gown up to my stomach for a few seconds and just looks at my public hair. And that's pretty much it, after he leaves I get dressed and leave.


Mine has been quite different. I just changed doctors because I turned 15 last month and felt I didn't want to attend the pediatrician with the little kids and babies any longer. My new doctor is a woman, who does general practice and family medicine.

When I went for my exam, my mom and older sis (18) were with me. When we got into the exam room, the nurse had me take off everything except my panties and had me step onto the scale. She took my temperature, weight, height, blood pressure and measurements and recorded everything on a notebook. She asked if I would like a gown, but said the doctor would be examining me fully naked and if I did use a gown, she would be taking it completely off as soon as the doctor was ready to examine me. I didn't see any reason for having one because I am quite comfortable being naked around other people since my family are naturist/nudists. The nurse then got out a little specimen cup and put out a number of instruments on a paper towel on the counter. She told me to slip my panties down and squat down and pee in the cup which she held in the right spot to catch it.

It was about 10 minutes before she came back into the room with the doctor. The first thing that happened was the nurse slipped my panties down and took them off me, and the doctor asked me to walk the length of the exam room on my toes, then walk back toward her on my heels. She felt my waist and my hip joints and told me to sit up on the exam table. Next she listened to my heart and lungs. She examined my breasts and nipples while I was sitting, then had me lay back on the table and did that a second time. The nurse pulled the exam stirrups out of the table, and told me to put my heels in them and slide down to the end exposing my vaginal area to the doctor who sat on a little stool at the end of the table. She examined my pubic hair, then used a speculum to open my vagina and looked inside with a light. She took some specimens and handed them to the nurse. Then she put two fingers into my rectum and used her other hand to feel my ovaries through my abdominal area. After that part of the exam was done, the nurse instructed me to lay flat again, then roll onto my stomach and get up on my hands and knees, the doctor again used the speculum this time to open my rectum and examined it with a light, again taking specimens which she handed to the nurse.

After she had finished examining me, she asked a lot of questions about whether I was a virgin, how sexually active I was, if I masturbated and how often, how my BM's were and if I ever had any difficulty making a BM or going pee. I answered her questions and she wanted to know if I had anything I wanted to talk about, so I did ask her several questions. She asked my mom if she wanted me put on birth control shots or pills, and mom said that was up to me. I told the doctor I would prefer not to be on BC just yet as I had never had intercourse with a boy and wasn't planning to any time soon. She said that if that changed, to come in at least a month before so she could examine me again and start the BC, recommending the shots for a teen my age over the pills since you can't forget to take the shots.

I was expecting a pretty thorough exam since it was my first time with this doctor, and my first exam by an adult doctor instead of a pediatrician. My mom and sis had told me what they usually did.

That’s a very thorough exam. I’ve nrver had a doctor put fingers in my rectum. Maybe they should be looking for something they’re not?

My grandma has been a nurse her whole adult life, and says that's commonly done to feel for any growths like hemmoroids that don't belong there, but mainly to help the doctor locate and feel your uterus and ovaries through the abdominal wall. My mom and big sis both told me to expect that at every pelvic exam whether by a family doctor or gynecologist. It is kinda uncomfortable but she wears a glove and uses lubrication to slide her fingers in, and it lasted less than two minutes. She told me to take a deep breath and hold it, and to push out with my rectum like I was trying to make a BM, so it would be easier and less uncomfortable for her to do the insertion.

What I wasn't expecting was the rectal exam with the speculum while I was up on my hands and knees with my butt in the air, however the nurse had told my mom at the time she first had me undress and was putting out the instruments for the doctor that an internal rectal exam would be done as the last step of the physical exam. It was a bit more uncomfortable than having her fingers inside me, and I would say the "worst" part of my exam. It lasted maybe 4 or 5 minutes. Did the same deep breath and push while she inserted the speculum. Putting it in wasn't terribly worse than having her fingers up me, but when she opened the speculum to do the exam and locked it open then it became quite uncomfortable for the first couple of minutes, but nearer the end of the exam when I was able to relax more it wasn't quite so bad. I can certainly tolerate this exam once a year if it helps the doctor find something that would be a problem.

Mom says wait until I'm older and have to get the sort of rectal exam where they go up you several feet with a probe that has a light on the end, which takes like 20-30 minutes for the exam. In our country depending upon your family history, everyone is given that exam starting as early as in the 30's if someone in the family has ever had a problem, otherwise it's every few years after age 50. Since others in the family have had problems, I can expect that exam starting in my 30's. Mom says you just have to learn to tolerate it as the insurance company requires you to get that exam based upon family history or medical standards.
