Haha, no, I don’t think I could!  I think I would really wonder about it… same thing with proctologists, etc.

I’d be worried that it would affect our sex life… I mean, what if he can feel something abnormal with my parts and just can’t enjoy?

Yeah, no, I don’t think so. It would take a stronger woman than me to deal with that! I’ll stick with my software engineer. 🙂

Sorry, I’m giggling because I’m remembering this old Saturday Night Live sketch… “Mel Gibson, Dream Gynecologist!”

My Darling Husband is an ICU nurse – and sees people naked yes – including women.  And yes he has to clean them, handle bed pans, put in cathers etc.  I don’t have any problem with it.  It is just part of his job – it comes with training and experience.  He’s totally professional.  Most of the time I hear its nothing to feel special about anyway – old and obese people! 

He definitely leaves his professional work there and it doesn’t affect our sex life at all!  There’s nothing medical when we’re together, just romance!

I’m with @Rgeddy. The vast majority of the patients he would see would probably not be very appealing anyway! I’ve thought about your concern but I honestly think that comparing seeing a woman’s private parts in a medical setting with seeing your wife’s in your bedroom is like comparing apples and oranges for gynecologists.

@heathaah: I completely 100 percent agree with you.

My fiance is a urologist.  He works with all kinds of genitals all day (urologists do women’s pee tubes too, not just old men).  I usually just make fun of him.  It doesn’t bother me.

I don’t think it would bother me. I am a vet and I spend a large portion of my day cutting off testicles. Fiance has expressed mild concern that I know how to do this.

Sure. I don’t see any issue with it. It’s not like they insert the speculum, look inside, and think, “Yeah, now THAT’S a hot snatch.”

LOL. This is a hilarious question. Really, the seeing lady parts wouldn’t be a big deal. I would take issue with marrying any doctor because of the crazy busy lifestyle. I wouldn’t want to be a medical, political, or military spouse.

My dad is a gyno so I’m glad SOMEONE was willing to marry him so I could you know, be born and stuff. (Thanks, Mom!) Smile

@laural: “I am a vet and I spend a large portion of my day cutting off testicles. Fiance has expressed mild concern that I know how to do this.” That’s hilarious!

As for the OP’s question, I would have been ok with dating a gynecologist before I met C. 😉 The breast exams would be a little wierder for me than the pelvic exams, though. Not sure why…

I would have zero problem with this.  It’s their job/career and everything is completely professional/clinical.

I wouldn’t be bothered by this.  I have a lot of colleagues who are OB-Gyns (males and females), and I had to do an OB-Gyn rotation during medical school.  It’s really not sexual at all IMO.  In my experience, as an OB-Gyn, you’re doing a lot of delivering of babies, or surgery to remove something from down there, or Pap smears… non of which are “turn ons” for men (at least the ones I’ve spoken to about the subject).
