Our expert says:
What you are describing is a very common phenomenon. Many men experience emotional reactions to the reality of their wives needing to consult a gynaecologist and that the examination includes a physical examination of his wife's vagina and breasts. Men often feel territorial about their partner's and perceive this as an invasion of their sacred "territory".
So firstly you need to understand your reaction is common thus in essence normal. How to deal with it involves focusing on it intellectually and objectively in contrast to your subjective response.
The gynaecologist is executing a professional and medically indicated procedure to ensure the physical well being of your wife.
I hope this perspective offers some help.
