Do Tell: Have You Had an Embarrassing Moment at the Gyno?

Even at its best, a trip to the gynecologist is usually pretty uncomfortable and can be down right awkward. Since going to a doctor’s appointment already makes most of us feel vulnerable, being naked in front of a doctor only makes things even more nerve-wracking. Anxiety, discomfort, nudity, and discussing sex and birth control are just about the perfect equation for an embarrassing moment to arise. So ladies, do tell, have you ever had an embarrassing mishap at the gyno?

Okay, here's one from one of the guys. My fiance recently had his annual head-to-toe once over with his lady doc and when it was time for him to drop his shorts for the intimate bit she actually complimented him on his "down-there" grooming habits (he regularly trims his pubes and shaves both the shaft of his penis and his scrotum)! Imagine that?!

My gyno (he's also my PCP) is freakin' handsome ~ I'm always "wet" around the time I have an appointment .. knowing I'm going to get touched there by him!! Him also being my PCP, sometimes I want to create a body/health issue and come up with a reason to go see him =P

I had a gynecologist where his wife was also the nurse. They were very nice and made you feel really at ease with their easy chit chat when you were lying on the table. One time, the doctor applied the lubricant then put the clamp in to take a pap smear, and his wife said something that was really funny and we all started laughing and the clamp went flying out of me and hit the floor. I found that a little embarrassing. But at least I didn't have any stamps or glitter down there at the same time. :D

I only went once at 15, but he wouldn't check my private parts because I'm a virgin and the only thing that I needed were pills to regulate my periods. He was very funny, and since he's also my mom's gyno, he said "it's in time like these when I realize how old I am, when I'm seeing daughters of patients I helped giving birth to". That had me cracking.About the girl that asked her obgyn why did he became an obgyn, that's funny! I've always been curious to ask the same thing, but to a proctologist! x)

My very first exam was when I just started college and was with my family practitioner my entire family had been seeing for years. It was cold outside so I had a sweatshirt with my sorority letters on and I draped the sweatshirt over a chair when I changed into the gown. I was nervous of course and as she began the exam, she glanced over at my sweatshirt and said, "Aww. You're a XXXXXXX. So am I!!" I just laughed because that wasn't exactly what I expected for the ice breaker, but it worked. We then went on to share stories and before I knew it, it was over and I had a new found knowledge my doctor and I were sisters. My mother couldn't stop laughing after I told her.

My very first lady-exam was begin horrid to begin with because it was with our family Doc of many years. Smallish town so I went to school with his kids, etc.. So when he comes into the room he lets me know that he has a medical student and asked if it would be ok if the student observed the exam. I panicked and said it would be fine. The student comes in.. he is only like 5 years older than me and SMOKING SUPER HOT!!! Hot Guy took the reins and did the majority of the actual exam. OMG.. I think I blushed so badly that even the parts he was looking at were flushed. Awful!

I was at a birth control clinic to get my pap. The doctor asked me if it was ok that a student nurse be present during it. I said yes, turns out it was a lady that lived up the street from me whom I used to babysit for! Holy humiliating! She was also a pretty weird, creepy lady which made it worse.

I've never had anything like that. Mine asked me why I shaved and told me it's not healthy and you're supposed to have hair there or it wouldn't grow there in the first place. I wanted to yell that hair grows on our legs and under our arms and we shave that.

Three embarrassing moments with three different gynos (I don't think the first two were even actually gynos, just regular doctors at the Student Health Center):1. I used to be in a long-term relationship with this guy who was an ultra-conservative Christian, and we didn't have sex. I was on birth control to regulate my periods and also because I'd been sexually active before and started it, and just continued it for convenience's sake. Anyway, I go to get my annual, and the woman I saw asked if I was in a relationship. I told her yes, for two years, but we were not sexually active, and she responded, "Really?! That's weird!"2. I went to get my next annual and the doctor was examining me and she goes, "Hm! Your vaginal canal is really angled. But you probably knew that anyway, right? It makes it so hard to be on top!" Super awkward!3. Actually a good gyno, and I'm sad to be moving because she's so nice and I'll have to find a new one. I was starting depo-provera and had to get a brief checkup before they would start me on it, and she asked me if I was in a relationship and asked a few questions about my boyfriend. I started to tell her that we were long-distance and that we only see each other every few weeks, and after a few seconds I couldn't help it and I just started crying so hard. I was so embarrassed but she just gave me some tissues and told me not to worry, that everything would work out, and to relish the fact that I'd found love when some people would never know what it was like. Really embarrassing to cry like a baby in front of your gyno, haha, but she was great about it.

I wonder if those postage stamps were the kind you have to lick the back before they become sticky. If so, that's kinda gross!!!!

LOL @ the body glitter and stamps! :ROTFL: This is not that embarrassing, but kind of questionable. I think my gyno once made a sketchy comment about me downstairs. He said that it was much easier to work on me because I was skinny, and never given birth. He said that normally he deals with rolls of fat, and sagging muscles on the inside. I was taken back by that comment, to say the least. :o My friend told me he basically complimented me downstairs. :oops:
