I had my first appt with an OB today - due to my insurance changing I cannot use my midwife I had with my dd. This is a little embarrassing but I want to know why he did this...He did an anal exam after examining me vaginally. I was shocked - he didn't even WARN me first. When I questioned him he said that was just "the rest of a vaginal exam". There was a nurse in the room and everything but I am still uncomfortable about it. What in the world did he need to do that for? I have never had that done at any vaginal exam - EVER. And I have a history of sexual abuse so not warning me really upset me...Thanks...
