I'll tell you one thing, the longer the doctor's fingers are, the less it hurts to have him/her check you!

:o :lol: You're probably right. I would find it weird to go to a female gyno ...

It's interesting, our individual preferences! I only see female gyn's. I just feel more comfortable with someone who has the same "equipment"! :D

From my experience (I had male Drs years ago), they are much more gentle.

i think i'm pretty old fashioned because i prefer having a male doctor.

Most of the time, I would prefer having an OBGYN who has actually experienced what I am experiencing. However, there was one Indian-American OBGYN I saw a few times in my practice who was really, really good--he listened to what I had to say and actually made eye contact, and I never felt rushed. He and his had 4 young children, and I got the feeling that he was had been very involved with his wife's pregnancies, and was a very involved father.

The doctor who delivered my youngest was also aman, and I'd never seen him before, but he was very good also. In fact, I liked him better than the labor nurse, who kept screaming, "Push!" right at times when my body was saying, "wait, breathe." I snapped, "Stop yelling at me!" at the nurse, and the doctor actually said to her, "Look, this baby's coming out now anyway," and she shut up.

I don't know why the labor nurses think they have to scream at you to push. When you have a bowel movement, you don't need anyone to scream, "push!" at you! :ph34r: And then when the head is halfway out, they think that you can and should "hold it" until the doctor's ready, like that's going to do the baby a world of good.
