In a better world, this should not be a problem at all. A gynecologist is an expert in the sexual health and he or she should be easy to talk with. However, in countries like India, talking about female’s sexual health is still considered a taboo which is one of the main reasons most of the women in India are unable to seek help in time. When we talk about the sexual health most of us limit our thinking just to the intercourse but there is a lot that has to be included. Varying from infection, pain, irregular menstrual cycle, sudden weight gain, stress or a headache after sex and many other issues related to sexual health are generally ignored by the women as they do not want to talk about it. It is always better to consult a doctor as soon as you face any problem. If you feel shy to talk to a male gynecologist, find yourself a female doctor but make sure to discuss if there is a problem.
