I absolutely feel what you say is true. I have had some very bad
experiences with my HMO. At this HMO, women are asked to take all their
care from GP's. Only in the case of a special "problem" are you referred
to an OB/GYN.  After going thru a difficult pregnancy and miscarriage, and
traveling thru this system, I realized how outrageous it is not to provide
women ROUTINELY with specialists who are familiar with women's health in
particular-- GYNECOLOGISTS. We don't just need them to perform D&C's and
give birth to our babies-- we need them for routine care. We are half the
population-- and deserve medical care from specialists in our biology.
