Nervous about seeing doctor…

“I recently noticed changes in my body…I am a hypochondriac …I know there is something wrong though..I am very embarresed and scared to find out what it is..I think it might be more than 1 thing. is it okay to be nervous and shy…how could I be more relaxed…I know I’ll feel better once I get treated but I’m so nervous and scared”

A: It can be a scary thing to notice something that we don’t think is normal, hasn’t been there before, or don’t know what it is. I think its a great idea that you’re using this website to ask questions and gather as much information as possible. Please be assured that practioners who work in the sexual health field are specially trained to deal with these embarassing and sensitive subjects and want to help their patients the best they can. Ask as many questions as you need and seek out as much information as possible. Although it may be scary and nerve-wracking, it sounds like it would be a good idea to see someone, not only to treat any problems that might be there, but to help your piece of mind. If you need to, take a close friend or partner with you for support. You’re right, you will feel better once you get this taken care of. Good Luck!!
