    My GP is female so I see a female. I prefer it as it's just one person looking at my bits. Male doctors are supposed to have a female chaperone to prevent people making false allegations/prevent male doctors doing inappropriate things. The less people looking at my lady parts, the better I say. In saying that my FS is a male and he does all my internal scans so I guess I'm not hugely fussed.

    Doesnt bother me- its their job so to me gender is irrelevant.

    It doesn't bother me. They are just doing their job and gender doesn't come into it for me.

    I actually prefer male doctors.

    Don't really know why. I've had two different gynaes, both male and the one GP who has done a Pap smear was female. It was uncomfortable with the female GP. Probably some strange hang up about them judging my bits...

    I was always really funny about it and always HAD to have a female. But since going through fertility treatment and subsequently giving birth I am not really worried anymore. Funny how things change. I think just go with what your comfortable with

    I always ask for a female in my Pap smears with GPs.
    It's awkward enough with a lady getting up in your bits let alone it being a man. In saying that the gyno I had for my colposcopy a year or so back was a male, but I'm guessing he sees 20-30 or more vaginas a day lol

    I have massive anxiety around anything to do with strangers near my vag. Doesnt matter if they are male or female. Hence I cant do pap smears and have never had a one night stand. I literally will cry at the thought and I cant get passed it. After my miscarriage the issue came up with the councillor I had to talk to and she asked me if I had been abused or assaulted at all. I haven't but I still react like I have. If I ever did work myself up to it I would probably choose a woman though.
