Standard practice to avoid problems although I was assaulted by a male gyn when I was 17 and the female u/s tech that witnessed it just stood there watching and then apologized after he left the room.
In hindsight, I should have kicked him.

Wow...I'm so sorry that happened to you.  I don't know what to say really....

The best solution to this dilemma is, of course, to not get sick or injured!

Yep, option #1 sounds best.

I really don't think it matters going to an ob/gyn because they always give you this very unsexy paper dress to wear which hides all your curves, and every part of you is hidden except for what the doc is working on.  I actually experience more discomfort in the dentist's chair with a man.  It's very intimate having someone so close to your face, with their fingers in your mouth.  I find that very nerve-wracking regardless but it helps me a bit if the dentist is female.

I do not want to be bathed by a dude.  I would rather have a woman.

I'm lucky enough to have a wife who has had a lot of experience working in rest homes and such. If I ever need bathing I can get my wife to do it, as she knows what she's doing. That'd be ideal, as far as comfort zones go lol...
