I work in the medical field as a Radiologic Technologist so most of my job involves taking x-rays, which involves radiation, and because of that I have to ask every female patient of childbearing age (more like 10-60) if they are pregnant. Most people respond with a simple "no", which I like. Then there are the others who feel the need to be like "HELL NO" or I hear "oh I'm done with that I already have 3 or 4 or 5". I mean its not like it makes me break down and cry and causes me extreme anquish or anything, but really a simple no would be just fine.
Anybody else work in the medical field and have to ask there patients the "are you pregnant" question or anything along those lines? I get nervous thinking about going to places and having people even ask me if I have kids and here as part of my job I have to ask almost all my female patients if they are pregnant. I wonder if any of them have ever been on my end saying no and crying on the inside knowing that they should still be pregnant and/or grieving over a loss.
