Scared of going to doctors about private areas... Watch

Long story short... I’ve been experiencing really bad itching around my anus and vulva for weeks now.

I know it’s not going to go away without a trip to the doctor’s.

But the thought of having to show my vagina/bum to a doctor is really daunting. I know they see loads of them and blah blah blah, but I just feel like I’m gonna panic when I get in there. I feel really embarrassed. Baring in mind, I’ve never had sex so I’ve never shown those areas to anyone ever.

I’ve already put this appointment off for over a week now. Please give me some advice on how to cope with the embarrassment.

You'll be fine, sweetie. My thoughts are with you.
I'm a boy and I had to get my butt hole observed for spots.

If you have a problem it is better to get it checked rather than leave it and for things to get worse. It may feel a little embarrassing but your health should be your priority.

you’ll be fine! yes it will feel daunting and nerve wracking but it will be over pretty quickly and for the best. i know how you feel. i had to have a colonoscopy and was mortified! but these people are professionals and are good at making you feel at ease. good luck

I would just like to say thank you to everyone who replied. I went to the GP earlier and she put me at ease. It was slightly uncomfortable but I’m definitely glad I went, as I’ve got a prescription now which should hopefully resolve the issue.
