    I wondered this! Over the years Drs have asked me "any chance you could be pregnant" at many random appointments.
    The symptoms she described were consistent with other things.
    Drs might be trained, but they also rely on accurate information from patients to assist them!

    You need an OP of 1 to be a vet. I don't know why it didnt cross her mind that she could be pregnant.

    I thinks it's a bit rubbish. I fell pregnant with DS1 at 22. I had no idea because I was on contraception. I saw a doctor because I felt Tired and threw up at work. He asked if I could be pregnant, I said I didn't think it was likely. No further mention of it. Badabum, two weeks later I took a pregnancy test and two pink lines! Only took it because I realised I was late.

    I feel really sad for her little girl, the poor kid is going to grow up thinking her mum didn't want her and blames her for ruining her life..

    I know how that feels, both my parents did that to me its an awful way to grow up.

    I think this is ridiculous, if she didn't want the costs of raising a child she could have chosen adoption, I don't think 6 extra months would have made the cost of raising a child at her age any less troubling. My first child was unplanned and at 20, my own fault for not being more careful, sounds like she's looking for a meal ticket rather than better care of patients from the clinic to prevent it from happening to someone else, with her previous medical history I can see how they wouldn't jump to the conclusion of pregnancy. I get it kids are expensive but if you don't want to risk having one don't do things that might get you one.

    Exactly...and your doctor respected your answer, and moved on through his/her differential diagnoses.

    You had the good sense to check yourself later with a HPT.

    As doctors, we cannot insist you pee on a stick, nor insist you have bloods drawn. We can suggest it, and possibly cause offence in the process.

    Patients have a responsibility to give as truthful an answer as possible, else one is jeopardizing the process, which is not in the patient's best interests.

    This girl was sexually-active, hence pregnancy was always going to be a possibility. Unless she told this to her doctor, he/she would have taken her answer at face value. (And even a first year Medical student would know to ask this of any young woman with a non-specific illness, so I am fairly certain the question would have been asked).

    Absolutely ridiculous. And the part about the age? What nonsense, of course some people get judgement for being a young mother but 22 isnt insanely young. I had DS1 at 22m

    She doesn't want the costs of raising her daughter? Cool give her to me, I'll cover them while I raise her!

    This is pathetic, her poor daughter

    ahh true, didnt think like that lol. Still think its ridiculous though, I feel for her poor daughter who will find out about all this one day and possibly feel very unwanted
