When a man gets to a certain point of his life, and is on blood pressure pills, the Doctor needs to ask some questions, just to make sure everything is working.

If my Doctor smoked a pipe, had a 'tache, and wore a tweed jacket, I could handle a question along the lines of

"How is the old chap? Still getting up and about first thing in the morning?"

However I have to voice my concerns to an attractive late 20's/early 30's PREGNANT person.

She may be used to asking about early morning responses in clinical language, but its not something I tend to keep a diary of…

Seek another doctor. Do you have any choice about whom you see?

Women have been in the same boat for years!

Can't see the problem myself. I think if I had to discuss the old chap with someone it would seem more natural if that someone was a woman!

" occasionally, but not as often as someone you know apparently?" would have been my answer…..

I prefer female doctors; they tend to be more professional about <things> in my experience as they have different, ahem, equipment…..

Sheesh, just answer her question. She's a fricken medical professional, it doesn't matter what sex/ age/ pregnant-or-not/ race/ age she is, she's trying to help you. If she's less-than-competent, that's one thing, but otherwise she's asking for a reason and she's appreciate a clear answer.

I was laying abed in the hospital, in an awake but sedated condition after my operation, when an attractive woman in a white coat, carrying a clipboard, came in, whipped the sheets back to examine my nude lower abdomen (it was a gall bladder operation). She said not a word, made a note, whipped the sheet back and then left.
Of course, Johnson was there, and for all I know she just wanted a peak. I never saw her again.
I felt like Flashman, after being ravished by the Empress of China. "You take strange liberties, Madam!" So, I decided then and there that I would put some pants on, after vaguely thinking about it for the last hour. and so I did, a few hours later.

BTW, that was the night that Vince McMahon bought WCW.

Welcome to our world, son.

Deep breath, small smile, straight answer – and she'll appreciate your treating her like a professional instead of … you know, that …."other" sort of human.

However I have to voice my concerns to an attractive late 20's/early 30's PREGNANT person.

As well as being a trained professional there's a clue that she may not be totally unfamiliar with the workings of the "bit" in question.

Don't think it'd bother me.

I have this very cute petite Chinese lady for my Primary Care physician. (Think Honey from Doonesbury.) It's great fun to have her.
