    Massive pervert? Most likely not. Good question. Though I can't understand women wanting to do that specifically either to be honest

    To inspect breasts to help women/men with their issues?

    And you still spelt it wrong for the UK. :p:

    Seriously though, because it's an interesting mix of medicine and surgery, because you get to deal with a hugely varied patient population and what you do makes a real difference to their lives, because you get to help people have babies, both with fertility treatments and in obstetrics during delivery, which is pretty awesome? As far as I can tell, it's not a sexual thing at all.

    A man could become a gynecologist after becoming a doctor when he learns he excels in that area. He might also just have a particular interest in the field given a family history of female reproductive cancers, and he wants to personally help women who have been through what his mom and sister and grandmother may have been through. He could like experiencing the miracle of birth with women. Maybe he likes the office hours held by a gynecologist and that it`s not as high-stress as some other medical positions. So yeah plenty of reasons why a man might want to become one which are not perverse

    Nothing wrong with the rest of your post, but usually you become a doctor before becoming a gynaecologist rather than the other way round.

    I think, at a young age its glamourised in a boys mind, but if you think about what a gynaecologist may have to deal with, it sounds pretty off putting.
