This is how my wife (and I) was auscultated in our most recent physical.
My wife and I are dating since 2007 and we got married in 09. We had to move a lot during this period and hence did not have a regular doctor. Finally, we settled down in 2011. Since I am nearing thirty (wife is two years younger), she was suggesting that I undergo a physical exam for a while. Now, the thought of my wife getting auscultated by a doc is a huge turn-on for me, so I suggested that she gets a check-up as well and she thought it was a good idea too. We found a PCP who has stellar reviews in Yelp and www.vitals.com and booked two consecutive appointments for each of us.
I was curious to know whether wife will groom herself before the exam. Then it occurred to me -- my wife swims regularly (for fitness), hence she always gets rid of unwanted hairs off her body. Anyway, she wore a regular plaid shirt and a pair of jeans on the day of appointment, looking very charming (at least to my eyes 😃).
The doctor we picked runs his own practice in a small office (a waiting area and couple of examination rooms). There was a receptionist at the desk and the doctor himself -- no nurses. We checked ourselves in. The doctor called my name (I had the first appointment). When we both approached to the exam room, the doctor asked who the patient is. My wife and I use different last names, so he did not understand that the next appointment was in fact hers. Anyway, we let him know we were both his patients. He smiled and said it makes his job easier.
I was examined first. The doc took my height, weight, and medical history. Then I hopped on the exam table. My eyes, ears, and tonsil was checked. The doc put on the stethoscope and measured my BP in old fashioned way. Then he simply said, "Take off your shirt.".
That's it. No gowns! Apparently, this guy is old school. Anyway, I took of my t-shirt and immediately started speculating what would happen on wife's turn ;-). The doc placed his stethoscope all over my chest and examined me real thorough. Said he heard some benign murmurs and my heart rate was racing (duh -- I was really excited thinking about my wife's impending auscultation at this point). Then he moved to my back and made me take deep breaths about eight times. I had to lie down and my chest was examined once again. Next was a EKG and then I was all done.
Next was my wife. When weighing her, the doc just recorded it without saying it aloud -- quipping that wives don't want their husbands knowing their real weight. I was so turned on at this point. The anticipation of her exam was just killing me. Will she be exempted from undressing because of her sex (you know, double standard yada yada…), or her exam be as detailed as mine?
Soon my question was answered. After recording her BP, the doc hesitated for second and requested her to remove her shirt. I think she was half-expecting this, because she immediately started to unbutton. (Also, as I said earlier, my wife loves swimming; in our recent vacation to Maui, she spent entire days in a bikini and sarong. So being shirtless was probably not that a big deal to her).
On this particular day she wore a simple no-nonsense red bra. She looked so sexy sitting on the table in just her bra and jeans, waiting to be examined. I'd say her exam was slightly less detailed than mine. It was largely confined to her upper chest and cleavage, though the doc moved her left bra cup and inserted the chest-piece under her breast once. Then the doctor moved to her back and asked her to breath deep. I suspect at this point she was a little self-conscious because she was breathing in and out rather quickly. The doctor again requested her to open her mouth and take a full breath in and then out repeatedly. I'd have loved to see the exact auscultation spots on her back, but I must admit the view from front wasn't bad either 😉.
Next my wife was asked to lie down. To my disappointment, the doctor did not examine her heart again. Rather, he auscultated her tummy listening to each spot for quite some time. My wife has a history of heart-burn and acidity, I think that's why. Finally, there was the EKG where the doctor placed the electrodes around her bra, so she did have to undress further. The doc commented my wife's heart is one of the finest he'd heard and the EKG corroborated that.
That's the entire episode. Even though wife had to take of only her shirt and I have seen her in a less dressed state in public many times before, the anticipation and build-up was a huge turn on for me then and even now.
