i was listening to talk radio this morning during my hour drive to the doctor. they were talking to this older woman who was upset because her oldest son was a gynocologist and her youngest daughter has decided to be his patient. so the girl (young woman) has her brother as a gynocologist.
what are your thoughts about this????

personally i could NEVER have ANY family member be my gynocologist. i just couldn't do it. in addition, i would never want a family member to be my medical doctor of any kind (doctor, surgeon, dentist, etc.) or therapist/psychiatrist (which is just unethical, IMO).

Huh? You wouldnt support your family member if they wanted to be a doctor? Wtf?

Anyway, I dunno about gaenocologist, but I would definetly promote a family member into joining the health service. I respect those guys a hell of a lot, as I do firemen, servicemen etc etc.

It's weird but if they are comfortable with then why not . Maybe she can talk to her brother about things going on that she can't tell some doc that she doesnt know . He's a doctor and it's not like he will be looking at her in a sexual way . And with it being her brother it is possible that he will check her better then someone who is not connected and less concerned with her health .

no, i think you misunderstood. i think it would be great to have a family member in the medical field!
if my brother was a gynecologist, i would recommend him to everyone i know, but i, myself, would not be his patient. i KNOW that doctors are professional enough to look at me professionally, not sexually. so i am not saying that there is some incest thing with the brother being his sister's gynecologist. i just mean, having your gynecologist do your breast exam, and pap smear and examiner your vagina and your sexual organs/inside, is just too personal. i would not be comfortable with a family member doing that. plus, what if he found something horribly wrong? or if he found something that made you incredibly embarassed? most gynecologists want to know your complete sexual background, plus, just by examination, he can TELL a few things. ;) that would just creep me out. i'd rather it just be a stranger. HOWEVER i would definitely go to my brother/family member if i had a concern - get his expertise or opinion, you know...consult with him about the other doctor's findings and see what he recommends.

oh and to elaborate about why i wouldn't have a family member be my doctor is that there are so many ethical and potential negative consequences of doing so. many professionals in the field agree and actually don;t allow it.


i do think that it would be in your best interest to utilize your family member's knowledge and possible connections. so let's say you have some disease and your family member happens to be a doctor or specialist in that field, you use them as a advocate for you. make sure there is good communication between your doctor and the family member who is a doctor.

that make sense?

Oh! One of the talk show hosts is kinda a pig, lol!
any way...he says that he would not care if his g/f or wife went to her brother if he was a gynecologist, but that he would never allow her to go to any other male gynecologist.

so she could go to any female gynecologist but only to a male one if it is one of her family members! :eek:
talk about insecure and controlling. lol! :rolleyes:

I would find that very akward, but I am not a professional doctor so I don't know what he's feeling.

actually, the burden here is more on the ob-gyne but being a professional, that should not be much of a problem for him.

Maybe the girl is more comfortable with his brother, its her choice.

If the ob-gyne happened to be the patient's sister...that would not pose a problem would it?

Ok feisty, I know what you mean now.

It was just this comment that confused me, im thinking.

Anyway, I agree. I would not feel comfortable being examined by a family member. Its like when you are being examined by a stranger there is the protection of them not knowing you personally. When a family member inspects you they know you personally and they know you intimately like that. So yeah, inspections of my STD ridden penis are not to be undertaken by anyone in my family. Ill let the stranger scrape off flakes of smeg and work his way round my problem. :cool:

Ive just grossed out BoxingScene.com :boxing:

i guess in a way this is an unfair question because basically i am asking a bunch of men to pretend they are a female patient.

i guess the question should be: would YOU want to be your sister's GYN, knowing just how thoroughly inside and out you will have to examine her? i think as a professional, it's easy for the doctor to look at a woman as a patient and not a "woman", but when it is your sister, you know her and can't pretend.

basically it boils down to the patient and doctor, if they are comfortable with it, but like i said earlier, it is frowned upon for many reasons buy the medical & psychiatric community.

i don;t think of it in terms of a sexual thing, as i said.
i am a very private person and i would not want any friend or family member be my gynecologist - it's that simple.

as for not wanting a regular doctor me my doctor, there are numerous ethical reasons which i would be happy to site should you wish me to. it's more for the protection of my family member than for me as to why i would not put them in that position, but like i said i would utilize their knowledge and go to them should i develop some illness, disease, condition, whatever.

Ok Feisty, explain this quote please.
when you go to a gyn, they always to a complete medical history -
they need to have an idea of your sexual history (past and current), method of birth control, any past STDs, abortions or pregnancies, etc. The gyn examines your breasts, inside your vagina, and sometimes your anus. :eek: i really would rather not be graphic, about what kind of information could be gained from those types of exams.
