WHILE she's giving the exam!!!!!! AH!
I've always had my GP do it, but now that we're thinking about trying to get pregnant, last time I found an OB/GYN. She was really nice, and I like her a lot, but I'm laying there with my butt practically hanging off the edge and various, um, instruments being poked into me, and she asks me how I like living in Kansas City, when I moved here, how I met my husband ... Not an odd conversation in and of itself, but in context it was quite strange.
As to the other, sometimes my GPs had a nurse present and sometimes not. I don't really care. I'm sure that even if I were male, after seeing a hundred cervixes a week, female genitalia would start to look like the least sexy thing on the planet.
