Does it matter to YOU if your ob/gyn dr is a male or female or not?
It matters. I will never go back to a male. I love my female gyno. She was awesome when I was pregnant.
Quoting ashleighmama:I definately prefer a woman because they do the exam faster and they are much gentler.
Even though I prefer a female just bc I feel more self conscious with a male, I have to say from my personal experience I HAVE had male ob/gyn's that were wayyyyyyyy more gentle and faster and more compassionate and empathetic than some of the female ones I've had, I think its accurate to say that those things depend on each individual dr regardless of their gender in my personal opinion.
