Nope. No more violated that a dental exam, I suppose. It's a medical procedure. Sure, the doc's up in your business, but they're necessary and if you find the right doctor, that can make all the difference in the world. They're definitely easier when you're older (and used to having them every year) and especially after you've had a baby. I've been to both male and female doctors and it's all just a matter of preference. If you ever feel "violated," DON'T go back to that doctor. Sure, they're not comfortable experiences, and it's not like anyone looks forward to them, but you also shouldn't walk away wanting to cry.
