Our expert says:
It is possible that he is very uncomfortable with the idea of another male examining you intimately. Most gynaes do allow the husband to sit in on a consultation and they usually provide adequate cover of the genitals so that it is not uncomfortable for you and your husband. its also possible that your husband is not certain exactly what takes place during consultation so maybe if he does come in for one, he will feel reassured. this seems to be a specific problem so I would advice that your'l discuss it openly. As an alternate option you could consider seeing a female gynae or go to a female gp for your internal examinations and pap smears and follow up the results with your gynae.
