Medical Exam

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know this topic has been beaten to death. But I have a question or two regaurding the Medical exam. My fiance is freaking out a bit she is extremely worried about it thinking they are going to find something wrong with her like cancer or something. She is perfectly healthy but she is just scared. She thinks they are going to do a internal and external genitalia inspection and or a smear and find cancer or something. Does anyone know if any of this will actually happen. I have been told that it is pretty straight forward and ushually only lasts about 45 minutes or so. This would really calm her down alot if you could help. Thank you all for the help.

I do not know if the medical exams are similar across the board worldwide but in my case, no such thing, no internal exams as you described. The only thing they are concerned with is communicable diseases such as tb.

I had no internal exam what-so-ever. It was a regular check up, tested my eyes, took some blood, took an xray, checked my throat and ears and reflex by tapping my knee. Asked questions and done.

Even if she did get one and found cancer thats not going to stop her because its not contagious..

As far as I'm aware, there's no internal exam. Some people have reported the doctors taking a quick 'peek' down below just to verify that you are the gender you say you are. They take a chest x-ray, a blood sample, and do your vitals like blood pressure, etc. They are generally only worried about communicable diseases or certain mental health conditions.

If there is a mental health issue, or any other kind of health condition, best get documentation from the doctor about the condition. In mental health, it might be a good idea to get a letter detailing treatments, current status, and a note that they are not a threat to themselves or others. For other health conditions, just some documentation from the GP about it.

Basically, if you answer 'yes' to anything on this sheet:

Then you should have documentation to explain it. (The instructions tell you this, too!)

If she is so worried about the idea that she might have some kind of cancer in her girly bits, then perhaps she should go and see a gynecologist before her medical and make sure everything is ok. If she has HPV or something along those lines and that is what is making her panic, I don't think HPV is something that will keep her from being allowed into the country.

Anyone else know on that one?

My fiance has had a few seizures in the past and is currently on medication for them. Should he get a letter from his GP? Or can he just explain in a separate letter? ..this isn't something which they could deny his visa for is it? If he does need to get a letter from his GP (which I am thinking is the case), should it just explain his situation and that it is not a major problem?

Take a statement from the family physician explaining the condition and how it is being treated. There's a lot of seizures so the medical verbiage a doctor can write is what's needed. Is it epilepsy, something else...Knightsbridge will want to know what a doctor who has treated him says. It should include dates, treatment, medicine/dosage and general prognosis, ie no further problems as long as the medication is taken. Or for others who had something checked on the medical questionaire maybe the statement would include that it was resolved in 1999 and has not been a problem since.

It won't prevent a visa. There could be questions like...have you checked to see if your medicine is available in the US...how will you get a refill...will you be covered by your fiance's insurance immediately with a pre-existing condition. Those are things to think about as a couple. In the past people have said things like "I am taking an 8 month supply with me for the transition", etc and had a plan to let the officer know they had considered the medical aspect of moving. I'm not saying this to frighten you. It's just a head's up so he will feel prepared if medical conditions come up at the interview. If it comes up, it won't be a grilling but just a chat about it.

I had my medical in London last week. They didnt take a peek 'down below', just gave me a chest xray and blood test, looked at my throat, took my blood pressure (not surprisingly in the situation it was slightly high!), listened to my heart, checked height and weight and got me to read the middle line of an eye chart with my glasses on. That was it. The longest bit was the hanging around for half hour first, and the most painful bit was handing over £200 lol. Good luck :)
