Boys Well Dr Visit...What!

OK ladies my son is 12 and had his check up with the Dr yesterday along with a couple shots. My question is, what is a normal check up for Boys at this age?

    Well, my son got very angry with me and embarrassed at this visit. Everything is fine now but, he didn't think he'd have to show himself to the Dr.

      Before the Dr examined him she asked him if he wanted me in or out of the room. He didn't want me in the room so, I went outside the door only for a minute.

      My son would have been embarrassed too. Since you did not know what to expect, you could not prepare him for the visit, unfortunately, and I think it would have helped diffuse his angry response and given him the choice to let the doctor look at his privates. I don't think a doctor has to look there if it makes our child uncomfortable. Just explain to your son you did not know she would be doing that exam and ask him if he would prefer to forgo that next time. We always have a choice and if the doctor says otherwise, it is time for a new doctor.

        But Sheila anything abnormal would show up before going to the doctor's office. It is a very private thing to be looked in that area for the first time with awareness and I don't think it is an issue we force on our children.
