Our expert says:
It is not all that uncommon a phenomenon for men to experience emotional reactions when their partners visit a gynae, especially if the gynae is a male, and that the medical examination involves the area of his partner's body that has significant meaning to him. There is something to be said for your theory about a "primitive" response and a need to "reclaim" his territory. I would be careful of labeling your husband's reaction as "ridiculous". What is important is that both of you have feelings about this situation in your relationship, and communication is essential where you are both able to communicate your thoughts and feelings in this regard and negotiate a solution you are both able to accommodate to.
