  • Has Your Doctor Said Anything About You Being a Nudist?

    I'm going to my doctor for a physical. I'm a few months late on the physical, so I have more tan on my body. It will be the first time that it is obvious that I spend time nude in the sun. Have any of your doctors said anything about being a nudist during your check ups?

      I think there was a thread on this same issue not long ago. You might to see if you can bring it up with a search.

      Your doctor doesn't care whether you're a nudist or not, and it would be unprofessional for him or her to make any comments. You won't be the first person your doctor has seen with an all-over tan.

      Because there are health issues related to too much sun exposure, it's possible that you might get some advice concerning the use of sunscreen.

        A few years back I had a colonoscopy. That doctor remarked that since I had no tan lines I should be sure to tell anyone who was examining me for skin cancer (A GOOD thing to have done, by the way) that I was a nudist & had an all over exposure to the sun. That way I was sure to have a complete exam. I've done so ever since with no remarks from any person in the medical profession.

          Scott -- i've been to the doc several times since I became a smooth nudist. He never even missed a beat... seemed like he didn't even notice although i'm sure he did. Its just not worth making a big deal over. Later -- Jay

            No comments from the doc on my added tan - he said to give up the cigarettes.

              You would think doctors would actually be professional about such things, wouldn't you. But they aren't, always.

              I've never heard any comments about my lack of tan lines (sunbeds are so common anymore, I think it's "normal"), but did have a doctor act quite inappropriately about my tattooed breasts. During my annual "Well Woman" checkup, he not only used a firm grip on my nipple to move my breast around and see the tattoo better, but called the nurse's attention to it, then tried calling in the receptionist to look.

              I was not pleased.

              The AMA appreciates learning about such misdeeds. It's called "malpractice", because of the violation of ethical standards.

              If something inappropriate is said or done, please report it, for the sake of all the patients to follow you.

                Angel,

                Yeah, that sort of sounds VERY inappropriate. It's one thing to keep it proffesional (health related) or to speak of things when one is comfortable speaking of them. But to make one feel uncomfortable or vunerable in any way (for no medical reason) is totally unacceptable.
