No. Not reacting physically. I would probably not say anything at that point. But as the day/evening/night progressed I would just keep a quiet eye out and see if it kept happening with her or others but I would leave it at that if nothing further happened. If he kept making advances then I might politely let him know that we are together if the opportunity arose.
But otherwise I'm not too fussed. It wouldn't really effect my night.
In realistic terms and you weren't to know that, but DP doesn't like crowds and is not fond of being touched much. So we wouldn't have been there when it got busy. Also, if she was uncomfortable being touched like that by a strange person she would tell them so.
But I understand your scenario.
Your second scenario gets under my skin. Especially if I imagine it being another man that's she's exposed for. Regardless of the circumstance. My heart rate has actually increased just telling it to you.

Op just go and get professional help. Nothing on the forum will solve your problems. Good luck.

Just off point for a second.....
I went Public for the pregnancy/birth of my/our DD. My Ex-Partner and I have/had no PHI when we did IVF (went through a full fee paying as we couldn't go through a low cost clinic due to the Ex's Obstructive Azoospermia) also.
Anyhoo...I was classed as high risk mainly due to my age (being an old duck and all ) which was fine as it meant extra monitoring with scans etc which helped ease my anxiety, so I mainly dealt with OB's during my Antenatal visits (who were all male...none did any kind of internal examinations only felt my stomach and checked baby's heartbeat/size etc with their hands) though I did have a Student Midwife shadow me for the whole of my pregnancy. She was a gorgeous girl
We also chose to have an Elective C-Section to deliver our daughter and had a male OB deliver her with a mix of males and females making up the Surgical Team, Midwife, Paediatrician etc which is standard at a C-Section birth

Being an abdominal surgery I would expect that you weren't on display for all to see?
I would think you'd be covered in so many medical drapes and covers that all they'd be seeing is a patch of skin.
You're not in stirrups for an operation like that are you?

Thanks for your input.
It's a slightly different situation but thanks for the 'other side of the coin' viewpoint.
It doesn't make me feel any better though.
I have not said no to anything. If DP said she wants a male Dr, she gets a male Dr.
I will have to deal with it.

Serious you need to go and get professional help. If you don't and then do successfully get pregnant the who amazing journey will be overshadowed. We can't help you, we can't make you feel better. You've asked for help and the help we've all suggested is seeing your gp and then a psychologist.

I would suggest seeing a counsellor or psychologist of some kind.
As someone who has gone through the public system for infertility issues and now pregnancy (currently 13 weeks), I have seen many male doctors.
This pregnancy I have had a few issues which saw me in the emergency department and every doctor I saw while there (4 doctors) all of them were male. When you're in the public system, you don't get to be picky. They are professionals whose job it is to help you, nothing more, nothing less.
I'm now being managed by an OB who is male and I love him and the work he does and would pick him over the female obs I have met.
My GP is also male and I picked him by choice.
