Later in the appointment, he was printing off a renewed prescription for my contraceptive pill.
"Now how often do you forget to take the pill? I bet it's a lot." he said, with a smirk on his face.
Again, I stared at him blankly, not sure how the question was at all relevant. I'd been taking the pill, with no issues, for the last six years.
I told him I very rarely forget to take it. Because I'm a responsible, grown woman, who is quite within the realms of capability, to remember to take a pill every day.
11/11. Gynecologist: So, why are you here today?
Me: I want to get birth control.
Gynecologist:(looks me up and down) Right… Well I don’t think you should take birth control pills. You are already overweight, and pills will make it worse.
Me: Okay… But I want a fallback method of birth control. Pregnancy will definitely make me fatter.
Gynecologist: Hmm I don’t know. You say you want an additional method besides condoms, but I don’t want to give it to you because I don’t beleve you will continue to use condoms.
Me: But I am telling you I will.
Gynecologist: Yeah, but it doesn’t sound likely. Who is your boyfriend? How long have you known him? How did you meet him? What does he do for work?
