This is what I don't understand. If there was nothing remotely sexual about going to the obgyn, why would you have been turned on like that? If I go to the bakery and a gorgeous woman is working behind the counter I would notice her for sure but I wouldn't have a response like you did, I wouldn't remember it years later. That response alone should be proof to you that what I have been saying this whole time is right.

One time I went in for an exam. I was up there in the stir-ups and basically all hanging out-if you know what I mean. In walks this doc who was drop dead GORGEOUS!!! He stretches out his hand and says, "Hi, I'm Doctor _____" (can't even remember his name.) I felt like saying, "Hi I'm Embarrassed."

Again, as I mentioned above. Proof that I am right.

My OB/GYN is a man. Over the years I've gotten sick of other women who tell me I should be seeing a woman doctor. My male doctor is one of the best surgeons out there. If it weren't for him, I don't think I would be alive today. Also IMO I think women doctors can be unusually harsh with their female patients. Let's face it, women aren't always nice to each other. I used to see a woman ob/gyn and she was so freaking nosy about every little thing in my personal life, and it seemed she just wanted to judge me. She implied that I was an oppressed wife because I stayed home and didn't work. She wasn't assessing my medical issues at all, she was judging my personal life. A man doctor would never even care about the whole work or stay home issue. That is something women obsess over.
Yeah but if you tell a man you have bad cramps he won't know what cramps feel like much less bad ones but a woman would understand. Or as I have learned women and their discharge when not on their period, wouldn't women be more understanding? Seems kind of weird to see a male and you talk about your periods.

Exactly. Would you take your car to a mechanic that has never driven before?

I never said I was turned on . Just that he was really hot. Two different things. And he was an ER doctor, not a gynecologist, if that makes it any less sordid.

Exactly. There are some things that a woman is going to better understand and fortunately for women, most of the time they have that choice. Men don't have it so lucky. Even if your urologist is a male, it is rare that the nursing & tech staff assisting him are going to be male. In the same fashion as women truly understanding cramps in a way that men can't, they are not going to really understand male urological, prostate, or genital issues as well as a male medical staff person does. However, men almost always have to face a sea of women for such things.

This has been my experience as well. When my mom was in her PhD program in the 90's she said that Medical Science was very much a "Good Old Boy" club that was very difficult for women to navigate.

She said that most of the women learned how to adapt with the "If You Can't Beat Them; Join Them" mentality & would often become more patriarichal than the male Med Students.

I'd rather see a male doctor than see a female doctor that thinks she got to be a doctor by "acting like a man" & uses me as a way to "prove" herself.

" I was all sweaty and blustery through the exam because he was insanely hot." That sounds like you were turned on to me.

I never said that I was turned on-just the fact that I was embarrassed that this really good looking guy saw me when I was a "exposed" so to speak. I am assuming by your answer that you are male. Would you not be a bit embarrassed if the said gorgeous woman grabbed your privates and told you to turn your head and cough?

Of course I would be, that's why I wouldn't go to a female doctor for such an exam. You can't have it both ways. If there is nothing sexual about such an exam than you shouldn't be anymore embarrassed than if the doctor was looking in your ear.
