    My doctor checked standard things.. they might ask you when was your last period but other than that GU is not a part of the exam... They may possibly feel your stomach they did not feel mine. They asked me a few questions for neuro checks...gave me some shots and that was pretty much it..

    Not going to the same school you are. But I went to my family physician. I had just had a physical two months prior (which did not include anything invasive). Still, he looked in my throat and ears, listened to my heart, checked my reflexes, felt my know, the usual things. Then he filled out my paperwork and had his nurse give me the TB test. I don't think you have anything to worry about. :-)

    I had to have a physical, but it was pretty basic, like, can you follow my finger? equal strength in both hands? can you stand up straight with your eyes closed? very simple hearing test, nothing scary or invasive, and I also had some blood drawn for titers and had to get a few vaccines. No sweat!
