Stupidity and Reproduction

Another fun morning at Grumpy Neurology, P.C.


Mrs. Dimbulb: "My husband and I want to have kids. How do my migraine pills affect that?"

Dr. Grumpy: "What sort of birth control are you using now?"

Mrs. Dimbulb: "What's birth control?"

Sterilize her NOW, Doc, while you have the chance. We don't need her reproducing.

On another note, you've received an award over at my place . . . stop by when you get a chance.

Well, I have decided for you that you need another hit of...Fukitol. Time to get away!

If I were you, I'd have a callous on my head just from beating it against my desk constantly.

I have the utmost respect for doctors and judges dealing with people that actually belong in a mental institution or prison in stead of your waiting room :)

Found your blog on another one I follow, Margueritaville, and decided to have a read. SO glad I did; looking forward to the next medical update from society gone wrong ;)

I wonder if patients sometimes say stupid things without realizing it because they're nervous. Because if it's true...that's really scary.

How do you keep a straight face or keep from saying something you may regret later?? OMG. Maybe we'll get lucky and she will be too dim to figure out how to get PG.

How do you do it? I hope to goodness, that I have never sounded so stupid in a doctor's office. My God people!

Jeff said...

I thought migraines themselves were a form of birth control.

From reading the post, it's quite possible that she already is.

OMG! I know how this story ends. She DOES get pregnant and she has several kids and they all attend MY school!

As a teaching assistant for astronomy I had a student ask me why observation was canceled. When I told him it was the weather his reply was that it was "only raining a little". Not to mention the fact that it was completely overcast!

Okay, now that I finally stopped laughing I can only say I feel your pain Dr. Grumpy.

She will be pregnant within the month.

How has she lived this long if she's so stunningly stupid? I honestly think you would be happier if you were a Mongolian yak herder!
P.S My password for this post is "matings"!

I'm sure you've heard the one about the lady who was rx'd birth control pills & got pregnant. She used one pill every day, but it kept falling out. (urban myth? or based on a true story?)

As a pharmacist, I knew exactly were you were going with migraine prevention (topiramate perhaps) and birth control! What I didnt expect was her response!

Love your blog!

Ps. my code was 'trablet'! this is too funny!

CAL said...

I am curious, do you allow your pregnant patients to take triptans?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

No.
