SEMINAR TRAINING FOR CONTRACEPTIVE CARE – COMFORT WITH SEXUAL MATTERS (MALE DOCTOR)

A male doctor was faced with a patient whose calling card was a rather vague account of irregular bleeding on the Pill. The doctor noticed that she seemed rather withdrawn and unhappy. In response to a general enquiry about other worries she began to tell him about the sexual abuse she had suffered from her father in her early teens. Suddenly the doctor noticed that she appeared overwhelmingly attractive. The strength of his feelings in response made him stop listening to what she was saying. He reported to the group that he was able to recognize his own feelings, and the fact that they had stopped him listening. He managed to say nothing to the patient, and resolved to make himself listen to her story some more. Gradually, the sense of sexiness wore off, and by the end of the consultation he felt comfortable enough to consider the possibility of a genital examination without anxiety.
