    Default Woman sues medical centre for failing to diagnose her pregnancy

    http://www.news.com.au/national/vict...-1227203951232

    So, what do you think?

    I think this is ridiculous! She says it never occurred to her she might be pregnant, well s.x will do that to you. I do not think the medical centre should be contributing to the cost of raising her child. I'm sure she realised that pregnancy is always a possible consequence of s.x, even if using protection as nothing is 100%.

    But maybe I'm being harsh... Interested to hear others opinions

    I think she needs to take responsibility for herself and her child.

    This will sound harsh but unless she is willing to say that if the pregnancy was diagnosed earlier she was 100% going to have a termination, I think her claim is ridiculous. And I feel terribly sorry for the child if her mother was to come out and say that...!

    Well, it's really strange. I didn't know I was pregnant until 10w 6d, I had what is called hormonal bleeding when what my normal period was would have been due. I was also still taking the pill. I had no morning sickness, no sore breast, no weight gain, no fatigue. In fact the only reason I found out when I did was when I went to the doctor for a really crappy cough that wouldn't go away. I was coughing until I vomited and was starting to feel unwell and tired. I thought it was a chest infection. Turns out it was but I went to a different doctor than usual, I laughed at him when he put bHCG on the blood tests (he tested for everything LFT, FBC, urgent pleurisy etc). Sure enough, I get called back and told, the tests show you are more that 8 weeks pregnant... Went for he scan 2 days later..... 10w 6days. A couple of weeks later all the "symptom things started"...... But not finding out that late.... I can't believe it... You would feel movements etc.

    I too think it's completely ridiculous! Even if she was using some sort of contraception sometimes they just don't work! Perhaps she just shouldn't have had s.ex..

    Another ridiculous vote She had sex, got pg, didn't have the sense to even suspect she was pg.... and it's the drs fault??

    She's suing for the costs of raising the child? where is her responsibility in this?

    If she doesn't want the responsibility of a child, she could have given the baby to someone who wanted her.

    Default Woman sues medical centre for failing to diagnose her pregnancy

    If she didn't want to have her study, career and earning capacity impacted by having a child young then she should have:
    A) not had sex; or
    B) used contraception; or
    C) chosen a better male to mate with (ie someone who had proven beyond a reasonable doubt they would be supportive in the event if a pregnancy).

    She's blaming the doctors for her poor choices.

    I feel sorry for her. She was going to the doctors over her symtoms, she is a poor student in a tough course. Even if she wasn't going to abort, the extra time could have been enough time for her to defer and get baby accessories.

    We don't even know if she consentually had sex, or if she was on contraception.
