Vistited a local medical clinic last year because of an embarrassingly located cyst and the doctor took it upon himself to probe places I don't even let my boyfriend have access to (to say it politely). Didn't exactly feel like he was examining my problem so much as just causing me major discomfort and humiliation for his own enjoyment, but I just let that go as he was the expert and I wanted so badly to feel better. There was a female assistant in there while this was happening, but I'm not sure if she even knew what he was checking for and if what he was doing was required or not. Since then it's been a recurring problem and I have seen quite a few doctors including a specialist for the exact same issue/location. I have to say, that none of them have had to go to that level of invasive procedure, so it's really got me thinking now. This memory makes me feel SO gross when I think about it and it pops into my head at the strangest of times causing shameful feelings, but I know I will never report it because it seemed like it made sense and all the rules were followed at the time. Now I have a female family doctor so this won't happen again, but I can't help but wonder how many other perverted doctors are out there and if other women have found themselves in this situation as well.
