"Things I Don't Want to Tell My Doctor and Things My Doctor Shouldn't Have Asked!"
A visitor to my thread on patient bodily modesty wrote in part the following:"..a few months ago my male doctor brought up my periods. He was completely comfortable talking about it but I wasn't. I wasn't blushing embarrassed, but would I have preferred to talk to a female doctor about it. I'm not saying he has to experience it to know about it, but to me it is a sort of female camaraderie issue. It's hard to explain, but it really feels like an intrusion of my privacy when a doctor brings up something personal that I did not plan on discussing.
With the title of this thread and the introductory comment as stimulus to discussion, let's see what my visitors think and say about the subject.
By the way, I hope my visitors will take no offense to the above graphic. It was to communicate a visual point and in no way did I intend to imply or picture a patient as a monkey. Even monkeys may have modesty issues too. Whenever I see a monkey on a TV show, I see them in diapers!
