I'm scared to get a physical for sports!

Athletes at my school say you have to go to the doctor to get a physical. What is a physical and should I be nervous?

what exactly does the doctor do to you when you get a breast exam!!!???




Hey girlie,

The doctor feels around your breasts to make sure there aren't any abnormal bumps (aka cancerous bumps)

At my most recent physical my male doctor asked me in depth questions about my "monthly cycle" (as he referred to it).
The worst part? They required my dad to stay in the exam room the entire time since I am under 18 years old!!

If at all possible, beg your mom to take you to your phsical!!

MODMODMODMOD im going to have to get a phisical next year i dont know what to do i hate shots and really dont feel comfortable that much cause my doctor is a man i also have a lot of hair down there is there anything to do to make me less nervous




Hey girl,

 




This might be a good time to talk to your mom or guardian about switching to a female doctor. A lot of people do this as they start going through puberty. Even if you don't switch, keep in mind a physical's purpose--to make sure you're healthy.

MOD! What do they do to your vagina? Do they look at it for a long time or something?




Hey girl,

If you have to go to the gynecologist and start getting these types of exams, here's what you can expect... basically, there are two types of exams that your doctor will do: a breast and a pelvic.  For the breast exam, you just lie back on the chair and lift your arms (she'll tell you what to do, so don't worry about not knowing) while she makes sure your breast tissue is all "normal" by touching it.  For the pelvic exam, your doctor will basically look inside "down there" to make sure everything looks ok, and will probably take a sample of tissue (just like they do if you might have strep throat - it's a quick swab) for a Pap Test.  It's all really quick and as long as you relax, it won't feel any worse than just a little uncomfy.  It's weird to think about, but it isn't anything to be scared of!

mod mod mod,
after you piriod, you dont have to go to the gyno right, that just after you do *it




Hey girl, you can go to a gyn in your late teens, whether you're doing it or not. Your primary care doctor will tell you when the right time is though.

they can`t force u to take clothes off....if they ask u to, say "no. I`m not comfortable with that." I said that they understood & i juist kept my clothes on. trust me, they can`t force u to. it`s not like they`re gonna rip your clothes off if you don`t do it. they can`t legally force u to. trust me.

I have a personal opinion on something, and i want to share it. On the side of my screen, there's an GL ad saying like, "Be a model...or just look like one." Models don't really have a certain look. They are just regular girls like us, with enhancement. Every girl is like a model in their own way, and you are kind of telling them they don't like a model already. Every girl is beautiful in her own way! Lauren C.

Mod! Okay when I was seven and went to the doctors for my checkup the doctor made m lay down and spread out my legs and he looked at my "lady parts" It's not like I had started puberty or anything. Now he does it every year, why? It makes me extremely uncomfortable since he's a guy, but I dont want to be mean and ask for a new doctor.

 

 

Hey chica! That seems a bit odd to me. I would mention it to your mom or dad, and ask if you could maybe you could switch to a woman doctor. It's not mean at all.

dear moderater, i think i've had a physical. i'm in 6 grade. i went to the doc and first he checked weight and height.the i had to take off all my clothes exept undies and bra.my doc opened up my bra and was feeling my boobs to see how tender they were. the she put my bra back into place and made me slightly take off my undies and felt down there. it was creepsville. when is the next time i will have to get a physical?

 

 

Hey chica! Not all physicals are that extensive. It all depends on the doc. If you join a sports team you might have to get a physical, or when you go to high school possibly.
