A visit to the OB-GYN is never super-fun. In fact, it can be a bit stressful. Sure, sure, it’s all in the name of health, but if only they used better distraction methods while they
invaded examined women’s bodies, then maybe those appointments wouldn’t be so dreaded. But we’re sure it’s no picnic for them either. Obstetricians and gynecologists have to see and hear everything and they probably get asked so many questions — both of the justified and ridiculous varieties — that it’s like their patients are the Riddler. Or curious kindergartners who need to know everything.
One office decided to have a little fun with its patients by posting a list of frequently asked questions so sarcastic, you’ll have tears streaming down your face. Unless you’re pregnant and you’re already crying, thanks to those damn hormones.
One of the doctor’s patients loved the sign so much she shared it on Reddit’s Baby Bumps thread, for the rest of the world to enjoy. Thanks, YellowWoodenTable, you just made our day with your OB’s legendary list.
HA! All amazing answers, but our favourites are numbers four and five. Because pain and pressure are two very different things — something a childbirth instructor clearly isn’t aware of, though thankfully this OB-GYN is.
OK, one and two are kind of fantastic. And seven and 10 are pretty great too. OK, OK, we take it back! All the answers are freakin’ winners. Now, if they have a list of awesome questions and answers on the ceilings to distract their patients while they’re getting Pap tests, this office would win everything. And have a lineup out its door. This is one appointment women wouldn’t miss for the world.
