The next time, I asked, can I get some birth control pills? I have the period from hell, and forget PMS- when they started advertising PMDD, I felt like they were like, and you will have mood swings, Wendy, and irritability, like when you yelled at your sister yesterday. So anything that might lighten my load, so to speak, would be of the good.
She said, "I thought you were (religion) and weren't sexually active. Did you change your mind?"
It was the way she said it, like I was making up all of my horrible symptoms just because I wanted the pill to start whoring around. Yes, when I came in, I told you my religion because it affects my health care. It was not so you could make judgements about what I choose to take. I felt super embarassed, first because I don't necessarily like discussing my period, and second because she just knew she was calling me out. If I was going to become active, religion or no, I would have said so- it's my choice! I couldn't finish that visit fast enough.
TL,DR- when I asked my MD for birth control pills, instead of believing what I wanted them for, accused me of betraying my religion. WTF indeed.
