Got a huge erection during the physical exam. Is this normal ?

I was at the doctor doing the physical exam and when she (doctor is female) told me to pull down my underwear for the genital exam i got a huge erection and when she touched it fluid started to come out. She didn't say anything but I was really embarrassed. The worst thing was she had an assistant in the room with her (also female) who saw the whole thing I just don't know if this is normal or not, and I feel kind of ashamed for this happening. I am 12 btw.

Ya, this is quite normal and it happens due to sexual stimulation. Since they are also from medical profession it is common for them and will understand it.

hello doctor i am 30 year old unmarried man. During my school and college days when i became nervous or tense like during exam time or delivering a public speech on stage, my penis ejaculated immediately without any erection. sometimes when i saw sexually explicit videos, including gay sex videos, also my penis ejaculated automatically without any erection.At times i felt some pain in my testicles during that immediate ejaculation without erection. I was worried then and did not consult any sexologist as i thought my problem would disappear with times. Now i dont have that problem anymore even when i become nervous or tense, but sometimes when i see sexually explicit videos my penis ejaculates immediately without erection. Sometimes at night my penis ejaculates without any erection while i am asleep. I think this happens because i had ignored the treatment of my problem during my school days. Doctor will this affect my marriage life as i am planning to get married? is ejaculation without erection normal?
