    I only feel comfortable seeing a female doctor for anything female related.

    Default Pap smears - do u prefer male or female drs?

    Male, I have found them to be more gentle.

    ETA had a colposcopy done in January and she was brutal! Took 3 samples and quickly had to shove gauze up there to stop the bleeding.

    Male. I really can't stand the thought of a woman doing it.
    I also like male doctors better, they are just nicer and more understanding.

    I also had a male midwife which helped.

    I just don't like women next to my vagina.

    Serious question, judge it how? As in the female Gp thinks "wow mine is so much slimmer/prettier/neater than hers"

    I just picture a male GP judging mine as in "wow i'd give that one a 2/10"

    I always think men are kinder when it comes to vaginas.

    Haha! Just had a mental image of a panel of judges sitting at the end of the bed holding up score cards like in gymnastics.

    Seriously though, I can't explain it. I recognise that its pretty irrational but can't get past it if you know what I mean? It might be tied up in an insecurity around other women or something.

    Or maybe im a crazy lady

    Who cares if it's irrational, it's your vag so you decide who sees it! I was just interested to know more Personally I would feel more "invaded" by a man but that's just me

    ETA lol scorecards. That's it, I'm neverhaving a pap again!
