    Is it OK for a Muslim woman to see a male Gynecologist??

    Is it OK for a Muslim woman to see a male Gynecologist? Lots of Muslim woman doing it, not just in the west but even if they live in Asia and other parts of the world as well. I know for fact that the Prime Minister of a Islamic Republic country had a male Gynecologist and he delivered her baby (atleast one, probably rest of them too).

    Also is it OK for a Muslim woman to get the Mammogram done by a male? Similarly, other exams and treatment in which they have to show or let the male Doctor touch their private parts?

    A female should really be the practitioner in all cases, and a male only when there are no females around.

    You are not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.

        Thanks for your good reference brother. The position according to shariah is understandable but there still is a lot of grey area in this. And when it is like this, a lot of confusions and misinterpretations comes in.

        Well, the main concern is, most of the times these days there are options available to particularly ask for a male doctor, gynecologist or a radiologist/technician, but I have commonly seen and heard cases where women don't bother to put any effort to ask or look for a male doctor. In some cases, women by their choice or preference, engage male Gynecologist etc. (like the example of a female Prime Minister of an Islamic Republic. Well, in most cases, it is becoming so common among the women to show 'don't care, male or female' attitude. For this, I would encourage Muslim brothers and sisters on the forum to share their thoughts and experiences and some examples.

          I'm confused. Do you mean female doctor?

            of course that is wrong, if we can ask for a female we should do so. male drs is for necessity

              I have trouble finding a female practitioner in here i dont even imagine what it must be elsewhere. Btw it's not something new, Muslim women before had male doctors even under Caliphate so i guess they had to deal with it. No joke with health.

                the problem is it is hard to find females in these fields, because of the length of study required etc, and most women after 6 years uni, then specialising and then practicing for a few years, then take career breaks for family and kids.

                  :wswrwb:

                  I wonder what Muslimah would actually see a male practitioner in relation to this ?

                  Gynecology is a fairly new area in medicine. Have there been any instances in the past of Muslimahs being treated for this, whether from male or female gynecologists (if they existed that is) ?

                  And wonder why any male would go into this 'profession' in the first place.... ?

                    I keep asking myself the same question , not only that but whether his work would be halal especially if he was a muslim that COULD choose a different medical field (pediatric, surgical , dermatology , etc) !

                      As a Muslim, I could never see myself working in the 'profession' of gynecology.

                        if you can't find a female gyno then it's permissible. but you should only go to a male gyno if you absolutely need to like if you are pregnant or having some serious female issues.

                        al humduillah i think nowadays it's easy to find a female gyno. the hospital i go to has a lot of female gynos on staff.
                        Say, O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”
                        (Surah Az Zumar, (Chapter 39: Verse 53)

                          In Canada it is usually your Family Doctor who performs the basic exams (pap/breast) and you go to a Gyno only if you have something more serious, like pregnancy, disease or complications in your sex organs.

                          You don't always have much of a choice here on who your doctor is, but alhamdulilah, all my doctors/therapists are female, except the podiatrist (food doctor).

                            Well, my inquiry is not just limited to the Gynecologists. That is more towards examining female private parts or such as delivering a baby, mammography, etc. etc., by a male Doctor. What the hell men are doing in these areas, particularly at this time and age? Where is the concern for the privacy and the hijaab of our wives, sisters and the women in general? Why men are still trying to go into this and chose to make it their career? Do women of this day have any objection or suggestion to discourage or stop this??

                              its like i said, because women cant go in to these careers unless they are not going to have a family, due to the time needed to study, and if men dont go in to these careers then there would be a shortage of these professionals, which would not benefit women.

                              as a woman,how can i say to another woman, go out to work and study, for long hours, on call shifts, for over 15 years of your life, then once you qualifies you are already in mid 30s, and then you have a demanding career, and dont want to waste all those years studying so have to practice for the benefit of other women at the expense of having your own family?
