In a recent Reddit post, an Experienced Gynecologist shared her thoughts on having to deal with a Trans patient for the first time. Here’s the full story.
She Was an Experienced Gynecologist
Throughout Anna’s 42-year career as a gynecologist, she has always prided herself on providing quality care to her patients.
An Unexpected Patient
However, recently, she encountered a situation that challenged her in ways she had never anticipated: treating a transgender patient.
She Thought It Was a Man
When Anna first saw the name “Axel” on her patient list, she assumed it was a male patient seeking treatment for a possible infection or a similar issue.
Vaginal Care For Women
As a gynecologist, her focus has primarily been the vaginal care for women. However, this assumption proved to be incorrect.
The Patient Was Trans
To Anna’s surprise, Axel identifies as a transgender man whose birth name is Andrea.
She Was Religious
Anna is a strong Christian, and she prides herself on her values and beliefs as both a woman and a Christian.
They Talked About Gender Identity
During their initial interaction, Andrea shared with Anna that he was a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
Emphasized the importance of using male pronouns and acknowledging his identity as a man.
He Shared His Worries
He expressed frustration with how society treated him and asserted that his gender identity was as valid as that of a cisgender man.
This discourse led to a heated discussion about the complexities of gender identity and societal acceptance.
The Patient Requested a Pregnancy Test
In the midst of this intense conversation, Andrea requested a pregnancy test.
Anna was taken aback by this request, as it seemed incongruous with her self-identified gender.
She Said She Couldn’t Do It
At that moment, Anna made a judgment call based on her personal beliefs and told her that a pregnancy test would be a waste of resources and time since she is a man, and she would treat her just like a man.
Anna expressed this viewpoint to her, assuming it would align with her understanding of her own gender.
Things Took a Turn
However, the response triggered a shift in the dynamic of their conversation.
Andrea suddenly felt victimized, accusing Anna of denying her medical treatment.
She Was Adamant in Her Beliefs
However, Anna feels as though people can’t have everything. She thinks if a person wants to play God, then they have to accept the negatives of being each gender.
Now Anna is overthinking this situation, but she doesn’t feel bad. She thinks it is due to her views on the new epidemic of gender ideology.
You Don’t Have to Agree With Your Patient’s Choices
She took to Reddit to ask whether she was in the wrong in the above situation, and several Redditors said that she was wrong.
Providing Care and Respect For Patients’ Choices
One Reddit user wrote, “Whether or not you agree with your patients’ choices, they are still people who deserve empathy and medical care.”
You Are Not Honoring Your Oath
Another Redditor commented, “You took an oath to do no harm. If you aren’t willing to provide medical treatment to someone based on your religious beliefs, then get out of practicing medicine and do something else.”
