They're professionals. All they will do is take a look (with you and your parents and permission of course). Is the doctor male or female

they will touch you but its ok. it doesnt hurt and no need to be embarrased. speek from experience
Report as
Yeah, they will have to touch you, but it won't be in an inappropriate way at all. The doctor being female makes it a little better.

How will the toch me how long will this take and what is the doctor is mean to me

The doc is a professional. Don't worry.

Trust me, the doctor won't be mean. You'll be fine.

It won't hurt at all. You'll be really self conscious, as everyone is the first time they have this kind of exam, but it won't take long. You'll be laying on an examining table with a sheet over you, and your feet will be in stirrups at the end of the table. It won't be as bad as you think it will be, but it's normal to be scared. Remember that you don't have anything on your body that the doctor hasn't already seen thousands of times before. In a way, this is almost a lucky thing for you, because by the time you become a woman and need to have this kind of exam every year, you'll already be a pro. Be brave, and good luck.

There will be a nurse with you during the exam, too. They will be professional as well as sensitive to you. It'll be ok, honest!

The doctor will have to examine you, and although there is no pain involved, it is pretty scary the first time. Ask to have the exam done by a gynecologist, who is a specialist in women's issues, rather than by your pediatrician or family doctor, and ask that the gynecologist be a woman. Your mother can be in the examining room with you, if you want. That should make it a little less scary. Treatment for the yeast infection is painless, just kind of a nuisance. Yeast infections are common, and just about every woman has had one at some time.

Im scared what if they hurt me what if she is mean im going ti be scared
Report as
Is this a doctor you already know? Why do you think she'll be mean to you? Most women who become doctors are sympathetic and sensitive. But if you already know her, and you don't like her, ask your mother to take you to someone else. BTW, in case you're worried about this, the doctor absolutely WILL NOT think that you got this infection because you did anything bad or wrong. Women get yeast infections all the time, for no apparent reason.

And it's perfectly ok to be grossed out and scared. Everyone is, the first time.
Report as
Well yea i know her but im really shy what if she thinks i dont like her how enbarising is it
Report as
It's not. She'll know that everyone feels the same way.

You will probably be embarrassed and nervous but remember that your doctor looks at women's parts all day, every day. To them it's no big deal, iit's just a day at work. if you do have an infection, there is a pill that clears it up. it may not be indicated if your under 18.

Im nervous that it will hurt and idk it will just go rong or something
Report as
Well if they use what's called a speculum to look inside, they have a much smaller one for younger girls. It's usually heated so it doesn't feel cold. It will feel weird and maybe hurt a little, it goes away though. But they may not even need to do that. They might just swab you will a big q tip and look at it on a slide. They will know exactly what it is. Try not to worry. You will feel better soon enough. I also can't think of anything that could go wrong.

It will not hurt, it will be over in a minute. You will leave your bra on and remove your panties, put on a gown so you are never uncovered. The doctor and a female nurse will be in the room. They know you are scared and nervous.

You will lay on a table fully covered, knees up. The doctor will insert a instrument which helps him see better. He will take a q-tip and swab the area, over in half a second. The nurse will be taking to you the whole time, you won't even know he did it, that quick and painless. He will also see right away if yeast is present. He will prescribe creme or antibiotics. You will be fine!!!
Report as
Well ok im just worried will this effect me not to start my peroid i have not started yet
Report as
No, not at all!! Believe me, everyone is scared their first time. He isn't going to touch you, it's done with an instrument to see better. It will be over so quick you won't know he did it yet. He will tell you you can get dressed and you will be thinking nothing happened. : )
It won't have any bad effect, and you will get medicine if you need it, you'll feel great!
Report as
Oh, I see you have a female doctor! Even better , she knows how it is!!
Report as
Yea. But what do you mean by the nurse will be thara with me what is it dose hurt mw
Report as
Me
Report as
Female nurse is present IF the doctor is male, so you will feel more comfortable with a girl in the room, it has nothing to do with being hurt, just for feeling less embarrassed with a man.
Since your doctor is a girl there might not be a nurse present.
Report as
Trust me, you will get through this, you'll be fine! You are making yourself scared and upset, it doesn't hurt, no one is touching you. It's something they do hundreds of times a week, and every girl has to get it done.
Report as
Now tell me you are ok : )
And promise you will find me on here and tell me how easy it was.

What did he base it on? Your age or your development? I don't know why he would even tell you that!!! True, the normal age is 12, 13 BUT I have friends that didn't start till 16/17!!
Stop worrying, you are fine!
He can't predict when you will start, he can only guess with development, age and other girls.
