Going to a male gynaecologist

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible for a lady to go to a male gynaecologist? (when females are available) We have heard some people say that some mufti has said it is better to go to a male which we find inappropriate.

A: It is a requirement that women should go to female gynaecologists. If a female is not available or she is not competent enough then you may refer to a male Allah fearing gynaecologist.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
