Awkwardness with family doctor
My family doctor has been taking care of us for the past 9 years and we all visited her for various illnesses, including the time we all had covid.
Recently I’m having some bleeding from passing motion. I’m very sure it piles and superficial as the blood is bright red, but the bleed has been going for a few days and I’m getting worried. My wife suggested to visit our family doctor to check it out.
Here’s the issue. My family doctor is female, probably same age as me and very pretty too. I’m very sure she’s gonna ask me to undress and poke me to check. I will feel awkward for that situation, especially knowing that she knows my kids and wife.
I was thinking to visit other random doctors but part of me think its still better for her to check for the record.
If you’re me what will you do?
- Go get yourself checked out and don’t waste time worrying about seeing your regular family doctor. Just go see a male doctor so you feel more comfortable.
- Don’t think GP does any poking and checking. If not just go to a nearby male Dr.. simple
