So I'm not sure if I'm overreacting about this (I suppose it's more of a WTF), but I was seriously bothered about it.


I've had what feels like a cold for a little over a month now. I'll feel better for a few days, then the symptoms will reappear, along with new ones.

I still wasn't feeling great on Monday, and then I inexplicably started vomiting in the early hours of the morning. I'm pretty sure it was due to food poisoning from my lunch from Sheetz, but I felt so awful the next day that I decided to finally drag myself to urgent care. I thought maybe they would give me something for the possible sinus infection that has been holding my head hostage for a month, and maybe something for my headache (I suffer from migraines, so the sinus pressure on top of that was just terrible).

The nurse that did my intake asked me if there was any chance I was pregnant. Nope, my last period was just a couple days ago. Okay, great.

Then I get in to see the doctor. He asked me if there was any chance I was pregnant. I told him no, it wasn't possible. He asked me when my last period was. I told him, just a few days ago. Then he asked me why it's not possible that I'm pregnant. Because I haven't had sex in a month...and I just had my period three days ago.

Then he asked me what protection I used during sex, how regularly I had sex, etc. He was very, very focused on asking me about my sex life.

Basically, he suggested at least 3 times during my short visit that I should come back for a pregnancy test just based on the fact that I was nauseous. And although I knew there was no way I could possibly be pregnant, I was still totally freaked out and got out of bed at midnight last night to go to Walmart and buy a home test.

I'm mostly bothered by the amount of anxiety this doctor caused. I was silently freaking out for over a day. Anxiety and depression are pretty well noted in my medical history.

Just in case you're wondering, no, I'm not pregnant.


I do feel like I'm overreacting a bit and it wasn't total bad_service, more WTF. But the panic was a little overwhelming.
