    I am a male third year med student and I love OB/GYN.
    Why you ask can a man love ob/gyn? Am I a perv some of you will ask?
    It is sad that there is a gender issue coming from other med students, I could understand if it was coming from the general population of women.
    To Start, most of medicine involves seeing naked people in compromising positions. A female in family practice, internal med, and Gastoenterology, will most likely stick something up a mans anus on a daily basis, many times there fingers. What about a female family doc checking for hernias should no women ever get to do a complete physical because they might enjoy fondling testicles. Of course not I a just starting by making a point.
    OB/GYN is MEDICINE and an incredibly interesting, exciting, and fulfilling specialty. There is no other specialty that one decision can effect 140 years of life the young mother and the fetus. Where a doctor can be part of the single most important part of being alive, to bring another human into this world. How about being able to get to know your patients and their family, especially if you have delivered several of their children and be a surgeon at the same time (and not just c-sec) hysterectomies, myommectomies, tubal ligations, tuoplasties, ect?
    On my rotation I have only come across a few pts who requested a man and 95% were Muslim.
    OB/GYN is a treacherous residency and a hard life style after, If we left the profession for women to do it would suffer greatly! Not because women could not do a great job, but because not only would the number of ob/docs dwindle more (wich has begun due to many factors one of wich is less men entering ob/gyn residencies) but so would the number of maternal fetal medicine specialists, gyn oncology, gyn reconstructive surgery, reproductive endocrinologists?. Do you see where I am going with this?
    IN CLOSING SORRY LADIES, BUT MEN FIND YOUR PHYSIOLOGY AND YOUR ABILITY TO REPRODUCE INTERESTING AND WE DON?T WANT YOU OR YOUR FETUS TO DIE DURING A ECLAMPTIC EPISODE OR FOR YOU TO BECOME STERIL DUE TO RECURENT PID! I AM SORRY WE FEEL THAT WAY US MEN ARE SUCH JERKS!

    You're the first one I've heard say that men are such jerks! More power to you, however, women docs do the same things men docs do, so the patient is not going to die or have recurrent PID problems if there are fewer male docs. I'm sure you find the female privates interesting, but you are being pushed/phased out for the preferences of a female doc. It's one of life's many lessons.

    LPNs got pushed out for the preference of the RN. Like the RN, the LPN was licensed to be there too. But the winds of change came along, and nobody could stop that. Too bad you're being pushed out, but what can you do about it?!?

    Every one knows women can do the same thing. lets not be cute. Men are not being phased out, men just don't wan't to become ob/gyn docs becaus of the headaches. Most women don't want to do ob/gyn as well! By the way most women don't care, in-fact I have meet more women who prefer men, because THEY SAY women are less sympathetic.

    P.S. ob/gyn residency slots are not being filled and women will pay the price in the future. do you ever read acog well this is what the American College of Ob and Gyn has to say, they are pro men in ob/gyn and so am I

    The number of ob-gyn residency positions -- approximately 1,150 -- has been stable over the last decade, but only 68% of these positions were filled by US medical school seniors in 2003, compared with 86% a decade ago.

    Among the contributing factors: the stresses posed by the professional liability insurance crisis, quality of life issues raised by the long hours in ob-gyn, the profession's potential for paying off student loans, and the declining number of men entering ob-gyn.

    So, janice you are right women can take care of eachother but is there enough women deciding on ob/gyn as a carrer?

    by the way do you even have an idea what an ob/gyn doc does, some one does not go into ob/gyn because they enjoy looking at vaginas. the trans vaginal hysterectomy on a 65y/o nigerian women with a prolapsed uterus i scrubed in on last friday had nothing to do with enjoying looking at vaginas.

    I am starting to think you just enjoy getting people talking about the issue and have no real experiance because your argument never says anything meaningfull, your opinion is meaningless in this argument, you are just one woman.

    LPN did not get pushed out by the RN. Nursing as a profession developed as a unified whole. LPNs assist RNs in their duties by recording vitals, monitoring patients, etc.

    You are unbelievable. Why can't you accept that men can and do belong in obstetrics and gynecology? They are not perverted, they are not intent on rape. They do their job because it is interesting and rewarding to bring another life into this world safely. After 6 years in the medical field, I can honestly say that my focus is to care for my patient, not to look up her skirt or touch her inappropriately.
    I ensure my own legal safety by bringing a chaperone into the room. I do not want to be accused of doing something I would never do just because I was performing a sensitive exam on a patient without a chaperone. It isn't worth it. All because of people like you who are looking to pervert even the most innocent of situations.
    I have read all your post and have come to the conclusion that you have issues with men in general. I don't know why and I would hate to surmise. But I find it disturbing to read the extent to which you pervert the facts and how misinformed you are about medical care in general.
    Just because you went to a doctor for an annual check up; does not mean you have even a basic understanding of medicine. I go to the mechanic to get my car serviced; do you think I understand even a 1/100th of how to fix a car?
    Janice your presence and comments are unwelcome. Your opinion adds nothing to this forum and only sours the healthy and intelligent banter that occurs here. If you have nothing constructive to say or are unwilling to be educated by those of us actually involved in medicine then leave.
