I was 29 and went to the doctor because I had a burning sensation when taking a piss.He examines my genitals and did a swab test for sexually transmitted disease.Which hurt like hell. Then he stayed in the room and wrote in my chart while I got dressed. So I am sitting there and then he says why don't we do a rectal exam just to be sure and have exhausted all possibilities.I just looked at him because at that time I didn't think I would have to worry about that until I was 40. So i just dropped my drawers and leaned over the table. It felt weird but not as bad as people joke about it.I actually had a great doctor and have much respect for him which probably made me more comfortable with the idea. How old were you when you first had a prostate exam for those who have had one?
