Does your doctor ask you if you and your partner have sex?


I have been asked that the last two visits and I have just decided if they can't remember what I said the first time then it is just too bad! I find that a very personal question and really none of anyone's business but mine. It is beyond embarrassing I think? What do you think?

    Well if they have a reason they should state it not just probing into personal things for no sound reason. I think we have enough of our privacy taken personally.

    I never had body shaming so sorry for you my sister is nurse; whatever that has to do with anything, I do not discuss sex with her either. Of course if I were having a sexual prob I'd have no prob discussing it I am not an idiot & no childhood ha

    Well they very well could lie about it so what's the point. It shocked me at first because I found it embarrassing (guess I am from the old school that does not discuss sex!) but at this 3rd time being questioned it just sort of made me mad. lol

    Sometimes I can see they have reason, but they have all my records & know me & I am no spring chicken with no wild life and no problems that would require them to ask me sexual questions. If there were then yes I would understand. Otherwise,

    I agree. Never understood the tendency to feel humiliation over such a natural human function.

    I did ask and got a non-committal answer, such as "I don't know."

    Of course! Could be dangerous for them too if they thought about it. That is really what is so silly about it all; there seems to be no rhyme or reason for much of their nosiness & when they could maybe help as you say they certainly are not disc

    I had nothing to cause this question either or I would understand getting it. In fact I ask why they wanted to know and the nurse said she didn't know; which seems pretty evasive to me.

    Certainly I can see that and after childbirth and all those reasons are sound reasons.

    If you feel he is violating you ,and you do not feel comfortable with him with your body,

    Then change physicians , I did for something similar and I would consider worse then then your question.

    Your womanly notions are telling you something !

    I agree. I mean if it does relate to why you went then I can see it but just out of the blue is puzzling to me and I don't discuss sex with my friends or just anyone as many do and that is my right. My mother raised me to be modest and Christian.

    Thank you; I think that is a great idea. I would have been mortified as a teen if asked about sex. Little did I know at the time it was a common thing for teens. Then when my 2 were teens doctors offered them birth control and I do not know what all!
