I just wanted to get some opinions.I took my wifes temperature that way all the time, even when she was pregnant.
I went for my very first 3rd Class Medical & Student Pilot Certificate
the other day and I never though that the examination was going to be
soooo thorough! Although the Doctor did not perform a GYN exam, she
asked me if I wanted her to do this. I recently had a GYN
appointment, so I declined her offer. However, since I was undressed
to just my panties (of course, with exam gown), it was no problem for
the Doctor to have me turn over on my stomach - spread the exam gown
and lower my panties a bit, so she could take my temperature with the
rectal thermometer. This sort of surprised me a bit, although tit
didn't hurt or anything like that, but I'm 27 years old! She told me
that it is "standard practice" and the most accurate way to measure
body temperature. While she was applying some lubricant before
inserting the thermometer, she also slid a gloved finger inside of my
rectum to check for hemorrhoids.
I'm not complaining --- I just thought that the examination was a bit
more than what would be required. I guess, doing all those touch and
go's could be difficult if you had hemorrhoids!
Does anybody have any thoughts or similar experiences?
