Doctor :   Well i can assure you that what you have experienced is a complete normal human reaction, there is nothing to feel embarrassed about it . If you are not comfortable with the Doctor then you can ask some other person to do an exam for you , like a Registered Nurse
Doctor :   But i can assure you that its completely NORMAL for your body to react in this way
Doctor :   and the Doctor understands it completely
User :   would a nurse check your prosate i don't know if they are allowed to
Doctor :   There is no need to worry about it, the doctor patient relationship can have some moments of awkwardness in them at times But as physicians we are supposed to worry about the patient well being and we just not bother much about such things.
Doctor :   But like i said if you not comfortable then you can ask for a change in doctor or you can even ask the doctor if she can arrange a male doctor for your examination, whats most important is that YOU should be comfortable
User :   so i should not be embarssed what had happenedf.
Doctor :   No not all , there is nothing to be embarrassed about it. Like i told you that what you experienced was NORMAL human reaction
Doctor :   Just let it not bother you anymore.
