Why do doctors?



As most of you know that I have visited a few doctors lately regarding my health issues. Most of the time their typical and first question is::::

Are you Married?

So this time I got the answer. I came back home and goggled the question and the answer is here. Its annoying still!!!

I have a urological condition and the question was related when I was Kuwait as it shows them how things work do there. but in the west no no asked me this.

Think-Become said...

eshda3wa emotional issues, maybe they think you have a rough marriage or rough things in bed?!! hahah

FourMe said...

at least in kuwait they ask you if you're married here they just ask you point blank .. Are you sexually active? I'll take the married question over any silly questions that I get here anytime :/

Zara said...

Maybe al doctora has a crush on you LOL!

Amethyst said...

Why is it annoying even after you found out the reason?

Sal said...

Well , this is called Social History , in order to reach an accurate diagnoses and execute a well planned treatment ,a medical personal need to take history of the illness,your past medical history, Family history , Medication and allergy and last but not least physical examination.

Bottom line : marital status is part of medical information gathering

chika: It was much more than this ;/

I usually answer this question with another one, “are you?” or when I pissed off, “What, you don’t think I’m pretty enough to get married y3ny?”. I’m not a very friendly person when it comes to doctors; it’s my right you know. I mean the guy/lady will probably end up sticking something down and orifice, prop me with needles, or drill a hole. You betcha, I’m pissy when at the doctor’s.
Oddly though a dentist I used to go to proposed once.

Technogal said...

It depends amu if your doctor was a woman then maybe she liked you ;)

izzy™ said...

just go like me : *smile* "its complicated" :P *blink blink*

btw im going to be an intern in a month, i promise to not ask are u married, i'll just smile and go "sir, are u divorced :P?" :P lol
hell, if anyone has emotional issues (or any other issue for that matter) its me :P
(um no im not divorced)
(um no im not married)
( um NO im not single)
thats why ppl call u m3allaga.. ur just hangin there :D

Aurous said...

It's just a modified way to ask about the person's sexual activities! They have to ask about it in case of Urological problems :)

TOOTA said...

LOOOL at NEMOOO!!;P that was funny!!

it's about the sex but in america they ask if you have been in a sexual relationship and the "are you married question"!!;/

Grey said...

Uhem ! didn't Dr Grey Advice you to get married first ?

Cooookies said...

It's just a polite way of asking about ur sexual activity ! Alot of patients find it insulting when we ask whether theyre married or not .. i dont get it, its much less embarrassing to ask sexual activities straight fwd !!
