Yeah, I agree 12. And any woman that ever tries to do a "man's job" I'm always suspicious about too. Just isn't right you know? People should know their place, where they can go, and where they can't.

12, Male doctors tend to be more sympathetic and gentle with women than female doctors, and this is even more true with gynecology. If the doctor is female and she asks when my last period was, and I simply reply, "I'm not pregnant" because I know that's why she's acting, she immediately assaults me with a barrage of questions, often impolitely. If I do the same thing with a male doctor, 9/10 times he'll simply say, "Okay" and move on. And with gynecology, female gynecologists tend to have an "oh don't be such a baby" attitude, whereas men make an extra effort to not hurt you and make the unpleasant experience as comfortable as possible. So that's why some women don't mind going to a male gynecologist.

This, I'm an intern and I repeatedly see my male superiors in general gentler overall. Especially when it came to vaginal examinations. It's funny when you think about it.

I've had bad experiences with both male and female gynecologists. My doctor now is a female and amazing!
One added reason I prefer a female doctor is because where I live, if you have a male doctor, there always needs to be an extra person such as the RN (I guess a witness?) during the examination. I already feel vulnerable being in that position and would rather not have more than my doctor see my privates on display.

Yes they did and their ghost is the one who posted the fml! Or they were only sort of dead and they took a chocolate coated pill from Miracle Max and came back to life!!

Yeah, no, I completely understand and agree. Ever since I've known about gyno exams and my eventual need for them, I've had my mind set on going to a female gyno. I just can't get past the thought of some dude I barely know palpating my pelvic region and poking at my vulva/vagina. Eugh :|

PS: lol "sexism goes both ways." You're not even close, dude.
