User :   Hi, may I answer your health queries
Doctor :   Hi

Doctor :   how can i help u ?
Doctor :   are u there ?
User :   I just came back from my annual physical exam. I have been seeing the same dr. for several yrs. This time while he was examining my genitals I am embarrassed to say, I got a full erection. It happened so fast. He asked if I had been sexually active & I told him that I had not for quite some time. I tried to cover up but he continued with the exam. Is this normal?
Doctor :   let me read ur query
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   thats completely normal
Doctor :   physicians are completely aware that , men, sometimes can get erections while being examined
User :   It just never happened before.
Doctor :   and this depends on the feeling of being nude as well as subtle touch , which may cause the penis to become erect
Doctor :   u need not be worried or feel awkward about this
Doctor :   if the examination was normal, then u can just relax and enjoy
Doctor :   neither the doctor will remember as he is experienced and thats part of his occupation
Doctor :   Do u have any other query?
User :   That is good because I was wondering how I could go back to him. He continued on with a rectal & prostate exam while I had the erection. I was mortified that I might ejaculate - but thankfully that never happened.
Doctor :   you dont need to be embarassed at all
User :   Thank you.
Doctor :   u r welcome
