Do ladies today get their temperatures taken rectally anymore? When I was growing up, it was pretty much the norm to have your temp taken rectally by your mom and sometimes by a nurse in the doctor's office. But times have changed. Are there any women out there willing to discuss this topic? Do you ever get a rectal temp at the doctor's office anymore? If so, how do you feel about it? Please give some details about the circumstances of having it taken. Thanks.
