Were you interested in the gender of the doctor as a child, or did you not care? I was a shy child. I was always examined only by female doctors. I wished there was a male doctor where exposure was needed. I had no embarrassment in front of men. But our children's doctors were mostly women. Several times I was able to choose a doctor. My sister didn't take me to a male doctor because she didn't feel comfortable there. Mom generally said that a male doctor could scare me if I had to get naked.
