The gynecologist is forbidden to say these three things — change the doctor if you hear this
There are no universal criteria for good and bad doctors (of course, except for cases of blatant incompetence) — it’s good if there is “chemistry”, trust and mutual understanding between the patient and the gynecologist, but, unfortunately, few people are guaranteed such happiness.
But there are signs that give out a doctor whose treatment can be a problem for a woman. First of all, from an ethical point of view, because the style of communication in such a delicate area as gynecology is very important. And the doctor’s incorrect, rude, and simply transgressing comments and attitudes put the patient in a risky situation of making the wrong choice.
We interviewed 10 gynecologists and identified the three most dangerous phrases that can be heard at an appointment. Each of them suggests: if a doctor said this to a woman, it is better to look for another specialist.
1. “It’s time to give birth already” (or “It’s too late to give birth, of course”)
Reproductive plans are a personal matter for each individual woman. Of course, if you trust the doctor or (sometimes this!) You have friendly relations, you can discuss the issue of procreation in the categories of “it’s time — it’s not time”. But when it comes to the relationship between a doctor and a patient, only the unambiguously expressed desire of the patient to plan a pregnancy can give the doctor the opportunity to approach this topic from the position of recommendations. Exclusively medical, based on anamnesis, reliable data on the state of health and ovarian reserve, etc. In all other cases, no one needs “good advice” about “the clock is ticking”, run away from such a doctor until he does something else said.
