Male or Fm psychiatrist?

Hello doc, From the last 2 years, i am in consultation with a female psychiatrist. She knows my medical history from cover to cover. Now i feel a male psychiatrist would be better to discuss my problems in detail. Is this a good decision? Should i ask  her to refer me a male psychiatrist? Help me. Thank you.
