AT THE DOCTOR: HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU UNDRESS?
Leave on only your underwear. The doc might ask you to take them off as well, but only if she has a specific concern.
ANNUAL GYNAE VISIT:
Take everything off so that your doctor can perform both a breast and pelvic exam. You can also request to undress in stages (top off only during the breast exam, then bottom half off for the vaginal exam).
Remove all your clothes except underwear. Your dermatologist can lift them away from your body as needed to check the skin there.
Clothes on. Your doc should talk to you first about your symptoms. For example, if you have a suspected UTI, she might want to examine your abdomen, but it’s unlikely you’ll need to undress.
