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

    I just go to my regular doctor who happens to be female. But no, I don't care who does it, male or female.

    I don't think they have to, but it's probably prudent for them to. i had a client who was a GP, and he always had a nurse present for pap smears and similar as he was worried about false allegations against him.

    My old doctor was male, and when I asked him for a pap smear, he suggested that a female colleague could do it instead.

    Anyway, I prefer seeing female doctors generally, particularly for pap smears.

    I have had 2 uncomfortable experiences with female doctors and pap smears, 1 good one with a female and the others have been with male doctors and have had no problem with them. Honestly, I don't care what their gender is, I just want a competent and kind, understanding doctor.

    No, I've never had a female nurse in the room.

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

    I prefer a Dr I'm comfortable with. Couldn't care less which sex they are! I've been very lucky and have mostly had good Dr's wherever I've moved too. But my 2 favorites have both been men! One is my current GP and he's just fantastic. Great Dr and a really lovely man.

    When I said I was there for a Pap smear she almost tried to talk me out of it! It was very weird, in the end she said she didn't feel comfortable doing Pap smears and for me to either have one of the other female drs do it or to wait for my usual GP.
    I hope she also felt uncomfortable taking money for your appt. That's ridiculous.

    Glad you went back the next day and didn't put it off.

    Male gp as my gp is male and I trust him with other health problems and is professional so who cares if they see whats down there

    I feel like female would judge me
    But they have a female nurse in the room at same time

    I'm more comfortable with female.
    I would feel weird having a male that wasnt DP looking at me down there.

    Doesn't bother me. As long as they get it done quickly im happy. Overall I have found males to be gentler.
