“Well, your consultant might insist you have the test, anyway” I hear from the nurse when I say that no, there is absolutely no possibility that I might be pregnant.
Whilst everything else about my stay in hospital this week was a delight, this particular question really got to me, yet again. It comes up every time I have had to have an invasive procedure and it somehow feels that I’m being told I’m not capable of knowing something as simple as whether I’m pregnant.
Trust me, I’m am absolutely sure I’m not pregnant. The complete lack of a cervix is a bit of an indication. That and going absolutely nowhere near a man.
Question is; why can’t a nurse treat me like an adult that is capable of knowing?
