Just curious how common this actually is. It has never happened to me (i've been close), but I'm always somewhat worried it will. Talk about embarrassing...
I have never gotten a full erection. I can control myself fairly well, although there was only really one or two times that I was really aroused during an exam, and both times I only got a little hard, never full.
I got a female doctor for the first time when moving from my previous residence. I was leery of how my first physical exam would go. I got an erection even while the nurse was weighing me prior to the exam! When I got in the exam room, it was rock hard. My wife, who was accompanying me, noticed and was quite amused. It was very difficult to get thru that first meeting w/the doctor, even though it turned out to be just an introductory meeting. I can hardly wait until next time. Neither can my wife......
Never had a full erection during an exam, but in a recent full body exam by a female dermatologist, I started to slowly develop one. I think it was the fact that she did not use gloves for the exam that did it. By the time she got to my genitals, I was about 80% hard.
when younger yes I was ussauly always fine until he started examining my penis and testicals which would cause me to get erect
I've never had one except when I've had scrotal ultrasounds. I've had two (I have some recurring variocele / hydrocele issues) once about 6 years ago and another a month ago
Both times that warm gel was the culprit also that and the length of the exam. Both time I had female technicians. First time not very attractive , this time more attractive but gave off a bit of a tough demeanor almost sort of a biker chick vibe. before I had my penis sort of taped down with paper drape and I think some tape , this time she gave my a folded up sheet & said to place over your penis. Even though the sheet was folded there was still nothing holding it down so I put my hands on my lower belly over the sheet and was able to press down a little to help sustain my erection somewhat. It was tough to hold back.. so much in fact that once the procedure was over and she left the room, i scooped up some excess gel from by balls and masturbated, coming in about 30 seconds.. I had to clean up quick and get dressed and meet her outside.
Thats the first time I ever did something like that but it just seemed like the moment to do it.
Happens all the time to me when my female physican does my genital and retail exam... Expectially the prostate exam...
About 10 years ago when I was 16 I had a Ultrasound of my testicles, I got in the gown and the examiner was a very sexy (but serious) middle ages blonde lady. I got the vibe she enjoyed giving these exams, I was nude in the gown (I loved strippng down naked in the dressing room) and I remember asking how she wanted me to lie and she said "lie on your back, hold the penis to one side" The word penis coming out of her mouth gave me a massive hard on, she was very professional though.
Something about stripping down and being nude is so hot in these medical settings. I loved being exposed and I remember the slight scent of my penis glands in the air when my foreskin retracted, it was lovely :)
Recently I visited a female urologist for my routine examination.
Eversince I suffered an injury in my inguinal region, I have been advised to get routine urological examination to ensure that I do not develop hydrocele in my scrotum as an after effect of my injury.
Everytime I prefer to visit a female urologist because I feel more embarrassing to visit a male doctor and get my genital examined by him.
As a part of the routine examination, the female urologist would always perform the digital rectal exam to check my prostate condition. On every occassion, once she inserts her gloved finger deep into my rectum and start pressing my prostate, I would get a strong erection in my penis.
But I am surprised to see how professionally she would handle the situation explaining me that it is a natural reaction. Then she would ask me whether I am feeling a sensation of peeing or pain when she pushes her finger (inserted into my rectum) on different sides of the prostate organ.
Hence I never feel ashamed or uneasy while getting erection in front of a female doctor because I am always confident that she is used to see such situation whenever she examines the genital organ of a naked male patient
smile, relax and breathe
I don't have a problem with that luckily, it wouldn't be funny because my family phisycian is an older woman.
usually I'm too nervous unfortunately
I will sometimes get semi-erect during the gential exam. If I wait long for the doctor or the exam room is cold my gentials shrink, very embrassing. I only had one full erection during a physical. I was around 21, the doctor was older an gave a very complete physical. When he preformed the gential exam he sat on a stool with me standing in front of him with my boxers on the floor. He palpated my penis, retracted my foreskin a few times, rub the glans, and then spread the penis tip to view the uretha. Then moved on to examine each testicle, cords, scrotum, and then the hernia exam. After the doctor was done he noticed my erection to took another quick look at my penis.
I teach my students that it's not the erection, it's the intention. Men get erections "just because." Medical professionals know this. So long as you have no intention of using the erection, the doctor will just accept it as a simple fact.
When I was joining the military many of the recruits in my intake experienced a state of semi arousal at the entry medical.... Me included, not sure if this was due to the anticipation of the exam or being sat in just underwear as a group
Actually, for me, its never come up! lol
When I had my wisdom teeth out as i went under I could feel myself going hard. When I came out of theatre several nurses passed comment. Just wished I could find those nurses.
Humor is the best medicine. If you get an erection during the exam a simple "Penis, check" should suffice to acknowledge that yes I have a boner and can't do anything about it but check it off the list as a functioning organ.
Never been an issue. Happened 1 or 2 times, male dr tho. He never even commented
A few years ago I had an older woman MD. Every time I got an erection she told me that she was flattered and thanked me. A very classy lady as well as a good doc.
The only times I've had an examination of my genitals it has been all business. Fantasy and reality are often quite different.
Nothing you cando about it, docs have seen it all before neways . I heard to try and hold your breath but I don't know if that works
If you are anything like me your fear of getting one, will make you NOT get one. So I dunno. Are you sure you will? If so you must not be too freaked out so I'd just let it happen, no big deal. They are professionals.
I would get erection all of the time. Especially when I was laying on the exam table just with my undies and new the doc was going to thoroughly examine my penis :)
There was a period of time -- from my pre-teen (I guess that's what they'd call "tween" now) years through about age 16 -- where I got an erection every time I went to the doctor. In fact, sometimes it started as soon as I was left alone in the exam room to undress. I expected it and was even a little proud of it when my penis poked straight out against the fabric of my underwear.
At 15 or so, I had a full-on erection as soon as I was undressed, it subsided as I got bored waiting for the doctor (for a moment I was worried that it was abnormal that this was my first exam *without* an erection!), but then popped back to life during the course of the exam and actually fully poking through the "fly" of my boxers (they had to come off right after that, so there was nowhere to hide). I was embarrassed, but not too embarrassed. It had happened before, and the doctor didn't say anything about it.
After that it wasn't an issue. The exams were all too quick and clinical to allow for any unwarranted excitement. I even recall one visit where I had a more detailed genital exam accompanied by some discussion (I was concerned that my epididimis was in fact some type of abnormal growth. Upon closer examination, it was confirmed to be normal.) without incident.
happened to me an erection, when being in hospital there was need for foley catheter. one doctor and two nurse came in the room and told me that i hve to be putted a catheter. as i was full naked covered with the seets, the fist nurse took them and my penis was in front of them. iwas trying to manage myself that the procedure might be painfull so there will be no erection problem. but... the time the nurse grub my penis and put betadine on it, my ordeal started. i was being more and more erected every time she was touching my penis. at the time that she inserted the lubricant inside my urethra, i was fully erected. she said to the doctor and to the other nurse that things would be very easy for inserting the catheter because of my erection, i was flaccid only when i felt a little pain during the catheter's insertion.in spite of my shy personality i did not feel embarrased with it.
I would get a chuckle out of it if that happened to me. Just smile at her and tell her, hey, he really seems to *like* you!
Masterbate beforehand at home to calm your nerves, and stare off at a blank point on the wall. Works every time.
I am always excited and very sexually aroused before going to the doctor, but when I get there anxiety usually takes over and I have nothing close to an erection. As some others posted, I actually shrivel a little and worry about going to far in that direction. I have actually sat in th waiting room trying to think about sexual things a little, but not too much, to try and maintain a respectable size. Its not as easy as it sounds.
I used to get erections during physicals when I was younger, especially in my teens.
it was embarrassing :-[
