Got an Embarrassing Question?
Have you ever been to your doctors’ surgery and wondered why they do what they do? Why do they look into your eyes? Why do they get you to stick your tongue out? And, chaps, why do they hold your testicles then tell you to cough? What is it that they are looking for?
Throughout our new series of Live From The Clinic we are going to be telling you everything you want to know about those embarrassing things you might find yourself having to do when you visit your GP, but aren’t entirely sure why you’re doing them…
Send us the questions you’ve been too embarrassed, till now, to ask. Feel free to post them on the thread below (but remember that it’s public) or instead drop them in an email to: EBfirstname.lastname@example.org
