Confession

blackwomenconfessions:

I saw a confession earlier about stereotypes in the medical field. I can totally relate. When I was sixteen, I had a concern about missing my period and I told my doctor that I was not sexually active and that I’ve had a normal period for 7 years. They did not believe me. They made my mom leave the room and asked me repeatedly if I was pregnant. I told them that to get get pregnant you have to have sex and I have not and to prove it to you I will take a test. Test was negative. Then they made me out to be a liar and said that I was making it up and that I had to be depressed because I was a shy quiet black girl.) Three months later I found out my missed periods were caused by cysts because it burst.
