I've never had a male obgyn, but I have had male PCPs. I will say that I would just feel a lot more comfortable with a female obgyn-especially one who has also had children. I don't know...it just seems as though they would really be able to relate to your problems, really understand any fears or concerns, and maybe be more understanding/gentle/supportive throughout the process.
Again, I have never had a male in order to compare, but those would be my thoughts. You could always visit with him a couple of times and if he sucks, change
You aren't married to your doctor, you can always change!
