No, you know how men are. All this sex talk probably has him in the bathroom with a magazine.

More "serious" note: agree to some extent about the unnecessary medical care demanded by patients--some of it does seem to be BS (or stuff that could be taken care of without the need for medicine). That seems to be an over-generalization with the men staying away from healthcare. Women do seek out healthcare more often than men, but we're not talking 90% to 10% here, more like 60/40 (from what I remember from the reading the stats a couple years ago), and I could be off a bit there too.

Off to work! Can't wait to read up more here when I get back (hope it's not closed by then!!)
Women on the whole clearly get more health care (at least in terms of dollars) than men (you can see that in health insurance premiums). I don't know what percentage of the health care is necessary (our female plumbing seems more prone to breaking down than men's plumbing) - or possibly unnecessary (I don't think I've ever met a guy who was diagnosed with fibromyalgia). But we do get more.

OTOH - women clearly receive less intensive care in some very important areas - like cardiac care - and they frequently are blown off as having psychological problems when they have complaints that suggest physical problems. Perhaps this is because younger women tend to have ob/gyns as their primary care docs - as opposed to board certified family docs or internists. Don't know.

I have a question. Does any woman here ever recall having a physical examination or any medical thing that involves touching done by a male medical professional when a woman (another doctor - a nurse - whatever) wasn't present? I can't remember a single one - including trips to the dentist. Also - all of the tests I've had at Mayo - everything from chest X-rays to mammograms to EKGs have been done by women (except for drawing blood - I've had a guy do that). Wonder if the men get men to do these tests? Perhaps this is a question of defensive medicine in terms of avoiding sexual harassment cases. Robyn

Robyn, I have only faced this once (and I struggled to remember because typically a woman is always present)

When I had a cardiac cath, a male did the prep and a male did the cath. I don't recall a woman being in the room but then I had been given some drug to relax me, I think valium, so who knows. I do remember that my pubic area was covered as best they could. The main thing I remember about that was how skinny the table was and talking to the fellow doing it. But nothing about it made me feel violated or uncomfortable.

I am sure the concerns about allegations of sexual misconduct run very high as they can ruin a career and a marraige and are probably why this is done that way (woman present). I know my husband has had EKGs with only women present.

Put a little heart tattoo on your other boob, red lipstick...false eyelashes...just a little too much perfume...and then suck on a lollipop...be sure to flip your tousled hair provocatively from time to time.

Let's see...was there a cliche I missed...?
My hooker stiletto shoes Wear those and don't take them off even after completely disrobed and throw my legs up into the stirrups with the hooker shoes on.

I know, I know, she's there for a boobie exam. But who knows when an epidemic of non-consensual pelvic exams might break out?!!!

A woman must always be ready.
Um, what if there is nothing to shave a shape into ~~~blushing~~~ I like things highly landscaped

I feel so violated.


I did not even have to disrobe, take off my shirt, bra or ANYTHING! I was able to pull my shirt to the side a bit and he could snip the stitches out. He didn't see ANY of my boobie. Yet he had to TOUCH ME!!! HE TOUCHED MY BODY!!!! WAHHHHHH
