Should male doctors be able to give paps or do breast exams?
Why not? Its part of what they train for. Are you saying people should only be treated by doctors of the same sex? Whats next? Would you only want to be treated by a doctor of the same ethnic group too?

If you went to the doctor and had exams and a pap and all is well but you still bleed twice a month what can you do to stop this bleeding?
Answer . \nYou say you've been to a doctor, I assume they've told you to leave it be. My best advice would be to see another doctor for a second opinion. Some people have disturbed cycles, it's not unusual. I don't know what a pap is but if you've had the stress of exams that will upset your body… that may well be the cause of the bleeding. best of luck (MORE)
At how far along should a doctor be able to tell that a overweight woman is pregnant by giving her an abdominal check up?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nIt depends how overweight she is. If only a little overwieght it shouldn't make much different, but if extremely obese it will be impossible to tell by abdominal exam.\n. \nOver 30 years ago I was a student nurse training in a pre-natal clinic and an extremely obese woma…n came in thinking she was about 28 weeks pregnant. I couldn't feel anything and nor could the trained midwife or the ob/gyn and an ultrsound scan confirmed that she was not pregnant. Women at both ends of the weight scale can have their periods stop.

Have had 3 different paps exams and only the first one resulted to hpv the others did not show that so what should a person believe?
Answer . Ask your Dr. if the first one was a false negative result, if all three tests were done in the same way.
Nobody should talk to their Doctor about his medical condition.. However, just like any other Doctor, a Jewish Doctor treats all patients professionally and has no problem talking to women about their breast cancer condition. Au contraire, it's a big mitzva to try cure sick people.
The Importance of Breast Examinations . Breast examination is a way in which early changes can be detected, as survival chances are excellent if cancers are detected early. Self-examination should be done monthly, just after a period. If you would like to learn how to do this, see the Web Link …to the left. This should not replace examination by a doctor, which should be done yearly for women over 40, and three-yearly before this. These checks may need to be more frequent if you have significant risk factors, so ask your doctor how often it should be performed. Self examination should also not replace mammograms as lumps can be easily missed while some types of cancer will not show up as a lump. (MORE)
A male doctor performed a pap smear on me after i asked for a female doctor he told me i didnt have a choice what can i do about this?
Answer . It depends on several factors, including your age and where you live. If you live in the United States and have entered puberty (which I would assume since you are getting pap smears) then you have a legal right to the doctor of your preferred gender. In this case, you should go back to …the hospital and lodge a formal complaint. In other countries you may not have a legal right to a doctor of your preference.. A little more... . Unless your legal guardians specifically contradict you and require you to see a certain doctor, you have the legal right to decline medical services, and to request a different doctor. In most States, this right is underlined in cases where the patient (you) is female and the case may relate to reproductive rights and sexual issues, this is underlined, and in fact at your age, yoru parent's invovlement may in fact be limited even if they are legal guardians.. As such, the doctor's answer to you is personally rude, professionally unacceptable, and may, in some cases, be illegal.. That said, there isn't a lot you can do in a court of law, unless (a) the controlling body (board of health or whatever) seeks to censure the doctor and/or the instituition he's contracted with. As you've mentioned no damages (except perhaps emotional), it's unlikely you can win a jury trial at the civil level over this, although if this situation is troubling enough to you, you might want to try anyway.. If you don't seek legal recourse, call up the hospital and ask for the Director of Patient Care. If there is no such position at this hospital, ask for whoever does QUality Assurance on patient care. Get them on the phone. Get their name, address, extension -- everything. Explain briefly your concerns, and plan on following up with a letter to the QA person. In it, I'd ask for a personal applogy from the doctor -- you may not get it but it's worth asking.. Feel free to contact me for more help with this, if you want. (MORE)
No. Pregnancy is detected by measuring the amount of hCG (pregnancy hormone) in a woman's urine or blood. Pap smears is a collection of cells used to detect cancer.
Im sure a doctor would be happy to get anything from a patient, I think its more the meaning behind why you are giving the gift rather than what it actually is.
No. A pap smear only detects cervical cell changes. You would need to do a pregnancy test to tell if you are pregnant.
It depends on if you are speaking legally or physiologically. At the present time pregnancy is not possible for male2female transsexuals: they don't have the working parts. They would require organs that are not available at this moment: a uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. GRS consists of a smal…l amount rebuilding technique and a large portion cosmetic technique. There is possible hope for the future though, with external organ creation, it is possible that a male2female transsexual can get a true vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries made from her own tissues and that work. Female2male transsexuals also will get better care as a full set of working testes and penis will be built and attached by surgery. YAY! As to legally, there should be no reason that a person born a male and changed by organ transplant (of their own grown organs) should not be afforded the same respect as to reproduction as a birth/biological female.

Is it considered abnormal for a heterosexual male to want female breasts and will doctors perform breast implant surgery on a non-transgendered male?
It's very rare for a male to want female breasts unless that person is undergoing gender reassignment. As this desire is very rare it accordingly follows that most people would not regard it as normal, so inevitably it follows that not being regarded as normal means that it's regarded as abnormal. R…are does not mean unique though and males wanting female breasts is a recognised phenomenon in the field of breast enhancement. There is even an internet forum for such people to get together, although male to female transsexuals are also welcome there and it basically acts as a support group for any biological male wanting in any circumstances to have female breasts. Most cosmetic surgeons would not perform breast augmentation surgery on a biological male unless it was part of that person's process of gender reassignment. The reason for this is that the surgeon could not be sure that breast augmentation was the appropriate course of action in such a case and is likely to believe that the patient would be better served by seeking psychological help. There is a guy by the name of Brian Zembic that got breast implants to win a $100,000 bet. After the surgery, Jimmy Kimmel even paid him to show his breast on television. (MORE)
Bettas are egglayers, not livebearers, so the female will not 'give birth'. Males and females should never be kept together due to aggression. If the female cannot see a male, most of the time she will not fill up with eggs.. If you set out to breed bettas and the female is full of eggs, put her in… a glass jar in the male's tank so they can see but not get to each other. Once the male has blown a large bubblenest, make sure there are plenty of hiding places. Release the female and supervise them closely. The female cannot spawn without the male's help. You will see him wrap himself around her and squeeze the eggs out of her body. After each embrace she will float motionless as if dead for a few moments before recovering. When each squeeze produces no eggs, the male will stop seeing her as a breeding opportunity and start seeing her as a threat to the eggs. He will chase her away violently. It is the female, not the male, that should be removed.. She will be exhausted and probably injured. Salt, melafix, good food and rest will sort her out. Do not spawn her again for at least a month. The male can be left guarding the eggs. He will pick up any that fall out of the nest and put them back. Some males, often inexperienced breeders, will be good parents for some time and then suddenly eat the eggs or fry. For this reason, a lot of breeders either remove the male and lower the water level in the breeding tank, or else remove the eggs, put them in a shallow container and float them in a heated tank.

Some do, and some don't. Many look at the breast to look for changes in the appearance of the breast such as changes in the skin, nipple or appearance of dimples.

An internist, family practitioner, or GYN can do a pap smear. Manyother health care providers also provide this routine test.
No you dont have a rectal exam with it, at least I have never.... Rectal exams are done by different doctors.
No, but a pap smear is usually part of a pelvic exam. In a pap smear, cells are scraped from your cervix. In a pelvic exam, the doctor inserts her fingers into your vagina and feels your reproductive organs.
breast exam should be done every three months, let your health be your priority check your deodorant if its contains alluminium ziconnium, it causes cancer and the nearest place to your armpit is the breast! Which result to breast cancer.
A PAP test is when cells from the cervical opening are taken via aswab to test for abnormalities. Any abnormalities in cervical cellscan be an early indication of cervical cancer.
i had a chiropractor tell me he could give breast exams. but he could have been lying.
Usually, it happens way after puberty. Though, if your immediate family ever had prostate cancer, the age for exams decreases.
I was looking for a reference point on this as well. . My health care provider [in N. Florida] just informed me that my insurance didn't pay them and that I thus owe $513 for a pap smear and pelvic exam. I should add that I've already paid the lab $28 --and insurance paid another 80+ dollars-- for… their work. (MORE)
NOOOOO!, that is not normal at all!...... Everytime i go for my pap my doc uses gloves everytime!. there is something wrong with your doc! .........I would switch doc's or tell someones about him not using gloves.....thats just sick!
Some good gifts to give to your doctor are: A nice pen set (doctors go through a lot of pens writing out prescriptions); a good bottle of wine (some specialty wine shops carry wooden wine holders with a lid on it so you could get one good bottle of wine and put it in the wine holder) or, you could …simply put a good bottle of wine in a gift bag (some liquor stores have these bags for sale or you can get them at any card shop.)

Of course why not I would love to have a nude female doctor makes it less stress full. I would not have a problem being nude in front of her..after all she is a doctor..
Only if the first cousin onece removed is a qualified physician with a specialty in Ob-Gyn, and if your stepdaughter is comfortable with using that doctor.
Can a female patient request not to have a female nurse in the room during a pelvic breast exam performed by a male doctor?
She could certainly request that and, for his protection, the physician could certainly refuse to complete the exam without the presence of a witness or chaperone.
For women: Breast self exams 20-25 or so, men can begin testicular self exams around 15-20 although testicular cancer is very rare and usually not detected through self exams.
Is it best to ask to see a male doctor for a testicle exam or should i just book an appointment with my regular female doctor?
If you are worried about your testicles then it is best to first see your primary physician, if they find something wrong or want a second opinion they will refer you to a urologist. If you are asking this question because you are uncomfortable with this type of exam with your female doctor then it …is best to find a new Doctor, one that you are comfortable with. Being comfortable with your doctor is very important, if your comfortable then the whole experience will be much easier on both you and the doctor (MORE)
Hell no! I'd rather have a woman roll my balls around in her hand ;)
I'm a male who had a very thorough physical by my (new to me) female doctor. Pretty much everything that could be examined, inside and out, was. After meeting my doctor and talking with her about my medical history and current concerns, I felt comfortable enough that I decided to not ask for a chape…rone for the exam. And that's the thing here; there is no hard-fast rule as it has to do more with your or your physician's comfort level. If my doctor felt uncomfortable, she would have likely asked if I minded a nurse in the exam room (would have been okay with me, too). So, there "should" only be another person present if you are uncomfortable being examined alone by your female doc. Don't forget that any doctor sees many patients a day and at the point in their career where they're part of a practice, a body is a body, male or female, and there are certain procedures for examining that body which the doctor goes through. As an aside, my doctor had a great bedside manner, sense of humor, and very good hands. Also, I have to say that she listened much better and took more time during the interview and exam than I had experienced with male doctors. Not sure if this is anyone else's experience but it is what will cause me to keep her as my PCP. Hope this helps a bit... (MORE)
You need to find a medical doctor that specializes in trans-gender medication. Usually they are a general practitioner or an internist and have this as an additional area of practice.
I'm not sure why but you can always ask her. It doesn't do anything for them unless you discover a lump.
A pap smear looks for cervical cancer and precancerous changes onthe cervix. It's a screening test, so it doesn't diagnose diseasedirectly, but points out those patients who need further testing.
my female doctor is a cute asian lady and she seems to enjoy checking me over
There is likely some danger from being too rough or too deep but my first girlfriend was very much into this and it was a lot of fun. When over my knee, jeans to the ankles, white panty girdle at the knees and white cotton briefs upside down from her cute little round bottom, and thermometer stickin…g out of her butt, she could get pretty turned on by being reminded of my view from this position and the view anyone else would have coming into the room. By the time she was there for three minutes, she would be pretty humble and WET! I have dated myself with the panty girdle reference but it was a daily part of the wardrobe of girls in their high school and college years in my time frame. (MORE)
You can get a pap smear from an internal medicine specialist,general practitioner, family practice provider, or women's healthcare provider. Many other specialists may also provide thisscreening to their patients. Ask your health care provider if thisis a service you can get at his or her office.
At this time (2014), the pap smear is still the easiest way to bescreened for cervical cancer. By the end of 2015, it's likely thatsome women will be screened for cervical cancer with a high-riskHPV test instead.
The doctor then uses a tiny brush, or a cotton-tipped swab and a small spatula to wipe loose cells off the cervix and to scrape them from the inside of the cervix
Pelvic exams start earlier if the teenager (under 18 years) requests oral contraception. Pap smears should continue once yearly for three years and at the physicians discretion following this time.
Doctors have a low threshold for reffering patients with breast lumps for further investigation. the doctor can tell my the shape and feel of theump wheter it's something ominous or not. I had one in February and having gone to the doctor I had a letter from the hospital for a scan and review by a s…pecialist which included an examination and ultrasound, within 2 weeks. I was worried by their haste but thankfully, as the doctor had suggested it was nothing. I have naturally lumpy boobs. Hmm. Good luck. (MORE)
The overwhelming majority of women do not take any medicationbefore a pap smear. Talk to your health care provider if you thinksedation is required.
Yes. There are several reasons for this. In a typical high school or middle school there are 6-7 periods in a school day. That means 6-7 different sets of students taking the test. IF a teacher gave a final over several days the questions would be spread among the classes and it would lead to cheati…ng. Everyone gets a test on the same day saves this problem. Another reason when giving finals the window for the teacher to correct the test and to get the score into the grades program is very narrow. Generally, finals are given the last week before grades come out and teachers are only given 2-3 days by the administration to get the grades computed and into the office so the student can get the report card. When figuring grades for 100+ students takes time and effort on the part of the teacher to get it done as well as teach their classes and prep for them each day. There is not a lot of time to play around with giving a test over several days. Finally, after 12 weeks of study you should know the info and if you don't it is your problem not the teachers. (MORE)

Under the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, there is nocost-sharing for a well woman exam and pap smear. Uninsured womencan find many programs for free or low-cost pap smears. Contactyour local community health center or family planning center forinformation on how to access these programs.
Any changes in the breast should be seen by a doctor. This includes lumps, discharge from the nipples and pain. You should do a self-examination every month and if you notice any changes at all you should make an appointment with your doctor.
Doctors give patients these gowns for many reasons. . When getting weighed the doctors don't want the extra weight of your clothes . It's easier to prod at your body with the gown. instead of keeping that extremely heavy and comfy sweater on you will have to put on that thin blue gown . If you ar…e given a exam that calls for a doctor to exam parts of your body that are under your gown it also helps guard the rest of your body . The nurses don't want to see your body running through the halls. Weaker patients with IVs probably can't put on regular clothes so instead of wrestling with jeans you get a nice thin gown so you can move from place to place. . Also, they are disposable. The gowns are thin so they are easier to throw away. The medical staff doesn't want to cross contaminate your flu with someone who has a very weak immune system (MORE)
A breast doctor should be consulted if there is any suspicion of disease in the breast area. Any unusual tenderness or pain should be checked by a physician to rule out any dangerous conditions.
Is that true that most doctors think that all virgin women should have Pap smears actually considered medical abuse?
I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. PAP smears are tests that check for abnormal cervical cells thatmay be an early indication of cervical cancer, the STD HPV is amajor cause of cervical cancer so if someone has not had sex orengaged in sexual activity their risks are very small but the risk…is still there are regular PAPS are still a good idea. The term'virgin' has no real meaning: people can call themselves virginswhile still being sexually active such as through outer-course ororal sex, also virgins can have been raped so exposed to HPV inthis way too. The only time a PAP smear would be medical abusewould be if it was forced without informed consent or if itinvolved misconduct that caused harm. (MORE)
