Is it weird that my Dr. checked out my goods with no gloves on?

    I was at the dr. office yesterday for a physical and the doctor did not put rubber gloves on before telling me to drop my pants. I didn't have my prostate checked or anything... just the front side. But still, he didn't put gloves on before handling me. HAHA. I'm not bothered by it. Just thought it was standard to put on gloves. Weird?

    That is weird. It's really weird.

    I would be a little concerned.

    I wouldn´t use gloves if I were taking your pants off.

    If he just checked your femoral areas for hernias or lymph nodes that probably is OK.
    If he examined "the rest" without gloves (e.g. if he had you cough while his finger was in the inguinal canal, or if he felt your testicles)--that's probably not OK...unless he himself has a problem with fine touch (e.g. neuropathy).

    Are you going back to him?

    It depends on how dirty your junk is.

    Yes that would be a bit strange. Did he at least use any alcohol on his hands? I wouldn't go back to his because one doesn't know how many others he has done that to. With eveything that flying around, I Would have been shocked beyond belief.

    Delicious! I mean, um, disgusting!

    perhaps he was pre-occupied and had a lot on his mind and simply forgot? he's human also.....

    EDIT: if matt's lower half is as attractive and clean looking as his upper half pics are; i'd ditch the gloves also!

    Is this a doc you have been seeing for a long time?? It's mostly a safety thing for him. If you have been going to him all your life and he knows your medical background enough he may not have been concerned. I see my doc every three months, I don't think he has ever used gloves for anything

    I've seen many older doctors do a male genital exam without gloves on. Younger doctors will probably always use gloves. It's more of a generational thing of when the doctor was trained.

    I've had it done both with and without gloves by both male and female docs. ::shrugs:: If they wash their hands before and after, doesn't bother me, and they always have.

    I wouldnt be too worried... my grandfather had a hernia which his doctor inspected without gloves..... and to be honest, its harder to inspect things with gloves on.. I wouldnt put on gloves to inspect the chest or anything either, so why put on gloves for the genitals... the anus is different, you have to actually inspect internally.... for externally its not necessary

    Doesn't seem all that strange. I used to go to an older generation doc that didn't use gloves for that either.

    I would have. I'd have been disapointed he didn't at least try to finger my fartbox while he was at it.
