How many of you have vaginal or rectal temperatures taken during gynecologist visits? I usually have vaginal every time, but I don't know how common this is...

well regular docs sometimes do rectals, but not often vaginal... gynecologists usually do the vaginal I think

My regular doctor always takes it rectally and he always has as far back as I can remember. I've been to the GYN twice and the nurse took it rectally at the start of the exam and when I was in the stirrups the Dr took it vaginally.

I've only had vaginal at the GYN but I've had rectal at my regular doctors when I was younger.

so far no doctor had that thermo check...but in future any doctor insists that one during whole body examination..we have to allow.

I've never had my temperature taken that way, rectally or vaginally. My gynecologist does perform a rectal exam tho.

I never had my temperature taken like that. The only way is in my ear.

Never heard of vaginal temperature taking. That's weird. The anus thing used to be how they took babies' temperature before digital thermometers (they would just lay the baby on his belly, and put the thermometer in his butt (my mom is a nurse, this is how I know). But I can't imagine someone old enough to put a thermometer in his/her mouth would have any need for a anal thermometer. Something's not right about that doctor you are seeing.

I don't think it's wrong.. I think different doctors have different procedures
