So I went for my yearly well-woman on thursday and had a great time helping train an intern. We all start out somewhere, right? During the Q&A session we had a chit-chat about birth control, as usual. I explained that I've been off my pill for a few weeks now and she pointed and clicked etc. into the PC and then groaned as a pop-up window appeared. She then explained that whoever wrote their online medical records software options was a moron. If one clicks "No birth control" under "form of birth control," one then must explain why the patient is without birth control. Okay, fine, that's reasonable. What's unreasonable is that the software was pre-programmed with three choices as to why a woman would be without birth control:
a) She's a virgin
b) She's in a same sex relationship
c) She's been through menopause
The Dr has to go into another menu, click several options and then make an option D for whatever reason the patient gives for not wanting to take birth control at that given time all the wile snorting at a), b), and c).
