  • I would prefer a male OB. My husband thinks it odd, but I asked him, would you rather a male doctor or female doctor playing with your "tools" LOL

  • now before i had the doc i just had i would have said a woman but the Male doc i just had was wonderful so it really just all about how they acted with the people they help

  • I don't like either of them. I was raped at a young age and Hate men. However I am not gay. And I only trust a certain amount of guys. When i was pregnant I have had 5 kids so each pregnancy after the first 2 of course I figured out what was needed and was careful the whole way. I was my own doctor. Right food, never took any meds not even tylenol stayed away from drugs,smokes,drinks dont do them anyways why start now. I took more iron then i would have on a normal non pregnant basis and had NO problems. I only went to see a doctor twice. Once to find out i was pregnant and once to have the baby! I would not suggest anyone to try this. AND DON'T lecture me. If you went through what I went through you would hate doctors too! .
    I go to girls that have their nails short. and I dont allow them to go south on me. and I make sure i have someone in the room at ALL times. and if i dont like what they are going to do I say NO.

  • Male.

    My current doc is a woman, but I really prefer Male Doctors regardless of whether it is my dentist, optomitrist, pediatrician or whatever. My doc retired and this woman took over, and being uninsured at the moment, I havn't searched out a new doc.

  • Female. I don't mind male for other doctors, but ob-gyn, I prefer female.

  • I always thought for an ob-gyn it would have to be female, but...oddly enough...I've never had a female ob-gyn. I guess I feel pretty comfortable with a man down there after all; the one time I was checked out by a fill-in doctor (who was female) I actually felt super uncomfortable. I wonder why that is??

  • Female. I hate the fact that a man sees my privates even though I KNOW they see it ALL day long
