I haven't been to an OBGYN but y'know, I'd like a straight woman helping with my parts. I see all the males in that field as perverts.

Please tell me that was just a poor choice of wording there and not what you actually believe :uhoh2:


I mean I admit, right now I'd feel a lot more comfortable with a female, but wow...

One of my best friends: A heterosexual male, is specializing to be a gynecologist. He's been in a committed relationship with a very nice girl for six years and I am best man at his wedding coming up in June.


He's no pervert. Though I did catch him scratching himself at Target once.

Lol oooook


And for me, I don't really care to be honest. My family doctor is a man.. I've never had that examined. But when I had pneumonia, I had to have my shirt off and he had to listen to stuff. Haha and it wasn't awkward. They're doctors, they don't care about that.


But I think if I had to choose, I'd choose a female lady partss doctor. Lol. But doesn't matter that much to me. As long as I'm comfortable with the doctor.

It's time for that post where someone makes a sarcastic joke that is childlike or immature, accompanies it with poor writing skills or an ironic smiley, and manages to pick up two or three thanks


I didnt read the page before and I thought you were talking about me o0ops


mah puzzy


honestly at the end im uncomfortable with anybody looking at my body even if they don´t care they still look at it or even FEEL it

i feel like they probably go talk to their girlfriends about my vagina at their fancy tea get together or something

I just realized that we're all kind of missing another element here, a/k/a babies.


specializing to be a gynecologist[/color]. He's been in a committed relationship with a very nice girl for six years and I am best man at his wedding coming up in June.

Just a gynecologist, or an OB/GYN? There's a difference.


A gynecologist is a physician who has a successfully completed specialized education and training in the health of the female reproductive system, including the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and diseases.


An obstetrician is a physician who has successfully completed specialized education and training in the management of pregnancy, labor, and pueperium (the time-period directly following childbirth).


And an obstetrician/gynecologist is a physician specialist who provides medical and surgical care to women and has particular expertise in pregnancy, childbirth, and disorders of the reproductive system.



I don't think we can really label dudes as perverts for wanting to go into a profession (obstetrics) in which he's the first person to hold a brand new human being. Being a gynecologist only, that's one thing; being both (OB/GYN) is another.

I would prefer a women doctor. Just because I feel I can relate more or like say something.

Idk. like if you had a penis and then went to a female doctor and tried to describe something. It'd just be easier to explain to a male doctor... I'm pressuming.



Just aslong as they didn't make me feel uncomfortable.

I don't know how I missed NumbersGirl response, I blame Twisted Mind for getting me confused with her twisted mind :veryangry:


Wait, what? Why are you attaching sexual preference to a completely unrelated comment?


Because I wasn't, I wrote "In terms of feeling uncomfortable..." in changing the subject to another poster. Why do you always easily get confused when you disagree with someone?


A male doctor can provide reasons' date=' offer solutions, i.e., treat the patient. But a male doctor doesn't really know what it's like on a personal level because he doesn't have menses coming out of his man parts every month.[/quote']


My post confused you? I know what you meant, and I still find that attitude ignorant. You're implying that male doctors actually can't treat a patient, I think you're putting your biology up on a pedestal. Sure we won't know exactly what it feels like, if that's what you care about, but in terms of giving advice? You think there's things a male doctor won't know? Does a doctor need to have both his legs broken to treat a patient with broken legs?


In your first post you said even the world's smartest OB/GYN ever would not be as good as having simply any woman, because they don't relate to your womanly ways. Now seeing as people seemed to agree with this ridiculous comment, let's play it out for comedic effect:




This is Dr. Smith, he's been treating cancer patients and seeking the most relevant and up to date chemo cures in wards for 25 years. However he's never had cancer himself.




This is Buck. He's relapsed with leukemia 4 times, he has lost count of this.


You would choose Buck to treat you, how can Dr. Smith really relate to you or know anything?


EDIT: I re-read this and really got the feeling you're going to pretend to miss the point and wonder what cancer has to do with gynecology.


For ~reasons I do not care to elaborate on~, I've had many people look at my ~*lady parts*~


What a hoe.


Female doctors in general have been kind of bitchy towards me. It was hard for me to get on birth control because of my wild and crazy periods because my female doctor was busy criticizing me for not wanting to talk about the sex I wasn't having. And another female doctor kept insisting I had an STD when I had never even so much as kissed anyone' date=' and after multiple tests over an extended period of time kept showing I was clear.[/quote']


That's an interesting take, and something I didn't think about. Men are naturally going to be over-cautious about it, they're bound to feel slightly more uncomfortable about the situation then a woman, who can look at your junk in the same way a mechanic looks at a brake pad.


I'm still not saying this proves my point, it is an unfortunate personal experience and doesn't mean either sex should be better at treating. That I can understand.
