    OMG, so I just got back from an appointment with a OB/GYN. I found him via my insurance website.

    I walk in and there is a sign on the door stated "I am no longer perscribing bc pills due to my religious beliefs." I was shocked and don't know why I didn't run then.

    I meet with him and he then asked me if I was Catholic, I told him I was. He then says that I should not be having sex before marriage and that I should go off the pill. OMG! He then said I need to go to confession and I will feel better.

    Okay, seriously, I am in shock. Can you believe this? I felt like I was on candid camera!

                    Ummm, I'm quite sure that doctors are not supposed to put their personal ethical or religious beliefs on their patients like that! What if you said you weren't Catholic - would he have turned you away or tried to convert you? That is weird! You might want to mention your experience to the governing body for physicians in your state. In Canada there is the Canadian College for Physicians and Surgeons and each province has a website for the practicing physicians in the province. That is messed up of him! Mention it to your insurance company too! They should know about what he's doing!

                      hahaa Yari. That's ridiculously funny. WTH- I can't see this as the best profession for him considering a majority of his patients will most likely be having sex before marriage AND wanting BC. LOL soo funny.

                      I thought I had a quack of a doctor a few months ago when I wanted blood testing for my thyroid and he started talking to me about how I'm not properly using my college degree then went off about me not wanting to be on BC because I was thinking of having kids in a year or so. He ranted about how I could possibly end up pregnant. I was like "ya- so? I just got married dude. I'm not concerned." That was my last visit there. I don't want lectures, thank you much.

                      Your visit was BY far the worser of the two. Great story though.
