    I see a woman. It’s just something I feel comfortable with. Personally, I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a man. However, my MIL has always seen a male doctor and would never switch because she likes the doctor. Honestly, I think it’s all about your personal preference. Some people are comfortable with a male doctor, others aren’t.

    I feel more comfortable with a woman because I know she has to go through the same thing.

    But I would switch to a man if I had a good rec. from someone..and I had male drs. during fertility treatments and never felt odd about it.

    Mine is a man.  I thought I would be uncomfortable when I found out he was a man, but when I walked in his office he made me feel very comfortable. We sat down and we spoke. He told me about his education and his job to make me feel comfortable, and he did. He is very professional.

    My current one is a woman, but I’ve seen a man in the past and he was great. It don’t have a preference.

    I’ve seen both men and women over the course of my life.  I haven’t had an issue with either gender.  The only time I felt weird about my doctor was when I would run into him at church.  That being said, I think there’s some things men don’t truly understand because they’re men and don’t experience the things we do.

    I have a female GYN right now, but she’s not an OB. I love her, but I almost feel like when it’s time to find an OB I may want a man – For some reason I think I’d be more comfortable during labor & delivery with a man calling the shots. Is that weird??

    Mine’s a woman. I just don’t want to go to a man. Not because I don’t think he’d be capable, but I like knowing that the woman can relate to some of my issues, lol.

    I have a male doctor and it doesn’t bug me one bit.  He works in a medicine clinic in a hospital, so there are often residents around as well, although usually the resident does not stay for the PAP.  His female assistant is always present though when he is examining and doing the PAP smear to protect both me as the patient and him as the doctor.

    Doctors are professionals, male or female, and I think it’s important to remember that this is a job to them, and not for pleasure.  They see a lot of different women!  If you want to switch to a male doctor, don’t worry too much about it!  It’s their job!

    My mom has gone to men for 30 years, and I go to the same ones (2 that share a practice). I have no problems with it at all, doesn’t make me uncomfortable in the least

    Mine is a man. I didn’t really have many options. He’s fine, and I only see him once a year so it’s one moment of being uncomfortable and then I’m back to normal 🙂 Then again, I would be uncomfortable even it was a woman!

    I always asked for female doctors, but one time I was at the hospital (military so the doctors do pretty much everything) for dermatology and I fainted (I was having cramps so bad that I practically fainted from pain) so my doctor (male) wanted to do a vaginal exam to make sure it wasn’t anything serious and I didn’t think twice about it. He was very kind and it didn’t make me feel weird at all. I’d still probably ask for a female, but I think I’m more okay with male doctors now.

    I’ve only had male GYN’s, strangely, but I’m most comfortable with the one I have now. Also, awkwardly enough, he’s the father of one of my classmates from high school, so all we do is chat about the past and my plans for the future during my, erm, visits. He’s been totally professional about everything, and I feel really comfortable speaking with him, as long as he leaves his son out of the conversation haha!
