@janemerrick23 @hansmollman Sadly not, I learned that time! The male doctor was nice, but it just didn't occur to him that he should be sensitive about it... Now I always check at the appointment stage, just in case.
@janemerrick23 @hansmollman (I had a bad experience having one in a teaching hospital where a male doctor tried to bring his students in to observe my cervix, and an excellent nurse who felt me go tense all over whispered 'if you say you don't want them here they have to go')
@janemerrick23 @hansmollman Second this. Also, be aware you can ask for a woman doctor/nurse to do it and to have a chaperone if that makes you feel more comfortable - tell them when you make the appointment.
@SEMcBain @HeathrowAirport Totally - you are absolutely right. I was helping a woman expressing in a station toilet who had all her luggage too just earlier - apparently there was nowhere else to go...
