I think it is essential unless you live a celibate life. Your doctor should be educated enough not to be homophobic.Onanite
My doctor, upon learning that I way gay, prescribed iron pills (assuming that I was anemic due to blood loss from anal sex) and added a "special handling" charge onto my invoice for my blood work.I found another doctor.
Medicine is a business, just like anything else. Doctors are there to provide a service. Yes, let your doctor know you're lesbian or gay - definitely. He/she can help you manage your health and ensure the quality of your life. If your doctor, is in fact, homophobic, move on. Life is way too short to people-please a medical provider who is strictly there for your needs - not the other way around...IMHO,Mark
wow Howller, that is crazy, good work finding a new doctor. My situation is a little odd, where i knew my doctor and he knew i was gay before he was my doctor.. but yes i definitely think your doctor needs to know
