      So... I'm not a guy, but a question for the guys on the forum. How do you convince a guy to go to see the doctor. Your answer should ideally get around the whole "I can't take time off work!" excuse, because he totally can if its necessary.

      I know men are stubborn, and they hate doctors, and this is why they have shorter life spans (or at least that's one theory). If anyone has some useful advice that would be great!

      I have the same problem. Basically, I schedule him an appointment right after work, so there are no excuses :) I know that he'd be embarrassed to miss it, so he has to go.

      You are right, guys can be very stubborn in regards to doctors and doing a medical checkups. I know, I`m the same way, however, whenever my girlfriend asks me to do it "for her", I usually oblige. You might try this approach as well, maybe it will work. :p

      Actually, there was some success, I kept on the topic and eventually stubborn male (SM) went to the Dr. It was ok I guess. I don't want to get into a "do it for me" kind of mentality. I want SM to value his own health and see the importance of going for himself.

      What are guys even afraid of at the Dr? Maybe if I could understand I could be a bit more sensitive?

      Hate the Doctors. Yes I know it's stubborn but I always think my body will just heal up on it's own and it would be a waste of time and money to go.

      I dunno why msot guys dislike doctors. I love going to the doctors! Partly because my insurance mandates I get a regular checkup at least every 6 months (twice a year), and allows for 4 free general visits a year. So that's 6 visits total. I just schedule them for an afternoon I have off every 2 months.

      Was a good way to catch my early onset f Diabetes, and is what got me to meet my current nutritionist. So I don't know what the big deal is. Show up, answer some questions, and if you have health related issues, get them taken care of. Boom. in and out in an hour. And I have the rest of the day to relax. Which I usually use as a cheat day.

      You're like me :D I never go to the doctor when I'm sick, I always heal by myself. But there are still some more serious conditions, and my husband doesn't want to go to the doctor even then...
