Erika S., Nurse at Planned Parenthood in St. Paul, recently told us:
“I have so many patients who come in and say, ‘I have a really weird question.’ And I just smile and say, ‘You know what, you’re going to have to try really hard to ask me a weird question. I can almost guarantee that another woman has asked me that question already--if not today, then within the last week.'
I often will say to my patients, ‘I’m on call. If you have a question or if you’re worried about something, just call. It takes five minutes for me to go over something or answer a simple question, and then you don’t have to worry anymore.’”
