Journalists always ask the most absurd questions. I thought it was only in Portugal, but I guess. not.
But now I am having Gynecology classes, so I have to talk to a lot of patients and write the patient history. Very funny having to ask women when they first had sex. Then they answer "at 20, with my husband". The next question it's mandatory I ask is how many sexual partners they have had... they all answer "what type of question is that? just my husband obviously
Med students... the stuff we go through, hear, etc... the other day I was doing the same thing but a patient in orthopedics. She had been run over. So I have to ask about the accident, what hurt, what didn't hurt, where the car hit her, etc... it's not such private info, really... but this woman turns to me "why do you want to know about my life? why are you asking that"...
Woman, I just told you I am a med student, I have to do all the stuff doctors do.... how am I supposed to heal you if I don't know what happened?
