Gynaecologists We Can Trust
This is an attempt to crowdsource a directory of trustworthy gynaecologists. Finding doctors who are on your side is hard enough, and when it comes to something as intimate as our internal plumbing, it's even more difficult.
We need gynaes who are well-trained, affordable, reassuring, and above all, respectful of any sexual or lifestyle choices we make.
We need doctors who know that not all people want their uterus, and that not all people with uteri are women.
We need medical expertise devoid of moral judgements regarding how we use our bodies.
And we need compassionate care that we can rely on when we are scared, in pain and sick, without any shaming for being promiscuous, queer, single, trans, abused, kinky, disabled, fat, childless, or any other aspect of our social identity that should have no relevance to the quality of medical care we deserve.

If you've had a positive experience with a gynaecologist and would like to share that info with other people, do please fill out as much of this form as you feel like and are able to.
You don't need to answer everything; we're just trying to get as much information as possible to be able to help as many of us out with all our diverse needs.

Your name and contact info WILL NOT BE SHARED with anyone besides me (@AmbaAzaad) and the folks helping to edit the spreadsheets (@Pavithra420 and @jimanish). We are asking for it just in case we need to get in touch with you for some follow-up questions.

Thanks for helping out!
