Why do girls need to get physicals?

when and why do we need to get them and what happens when your getting one?

Report as

While it is true that both boys and girls need physical checkups from time to time, girls particularly need regular checkups because they are so much more complex. Development of the female body to mature as a woman capable of reproduction involves many complex processes. There is so much more that can "go wrong." You can opt to have checkups made by a lady doctor if you are too shy, but it is VITAL that you know every part of your physical development is going normally. Boys, on the other hand, have all their sexual organs externally, so checkups are are easier. There are less things to go wrong as well. But women are stronger than men - they live longer, can endure pain and stresses more than men. But YOU need regular checkups so you can take whatever steps are necessary to correct your health needs - it is YOUR responsibility to know as much about your health as you can. Checkups are the only way you can be sure!!!!!!!!!!

Just to make sure everything's ok with your health. For physicals, there isn't much you should be afraid of. Only thing I remember that was awkward was that my doctor had to check inside my pants. You don't need to freak out, just bring your mom in with you.

Being in there with your mom? Nooo lots of people do that! Well I mean the checking the private area was obviously awkward lol but like I said, it only lasted seconds. You don't have to have your mom, just if a girl is nervous about it then it might be a good idea. I have a female doctor so it's not really necessary to have my mom, but I think this girl has a male one so it might be a good idea.

I'd say it's no worse than when a boys junk is examined by a doctor and they are told to 'cough'. These exams have a purpose, and it's to keep you healthy.

I hate physicals so much I have refused to get one for 4 years straight. Those doctors have no right to feel around where they do. If they didn't have to do stuff in your pants there'd be nothing to it but being measured, weighed, eye sight tested ect.

Good luck on your shortened life. These exams serve a real purpose, and to deny your physician access can only lead to a poor overall exam and could result in certain conditions to overwhelm your body. But then, it's your choice, don't foist it off as the right choice for others to follow.

And since you like sarcasm, I cant wait till you reach the need for your first prostate exam. Wouldn't it be ironic if your doctors name was Ben Dover? The reason I'm saying this is I was just like you. And now I'm dying from my prostate cancer that matastasised. Your young, but you're not stupid. All heath exams have a purpose, I only realize that because of my own stupidity and arrogance.

Men are such big sissies!!! They don't go for checkups until they are so ill it is too late to save them. I saw one man for every seven women in Cllinic and those that came were reluctant to tell you anything. You need a checkup every year to stay in touch with your health and an annual PSA reading to monitor your prostate. That way, any sudden changes are known and your life can be saved. Wait until the pain is unbearable and you may be beyond help. Most male health problems are symptom-free until too late!

While awkward by both boys and girls alike, these exams serve a purpose, and if your total health means anything to you, you'll allow your physician complete access, so he can give you an opinion based on your FULL examination.

With a sick attitude like THAT, you had better hope you never get ill or injured. Our whole society depends for it's life and survival on dedicated doctors doing their essential work.
