Is that medically relevant??

Me, after telling my mom that “Is your sex life satisfactory?” existed: “…I mean, obviously I’m not married.”
Her: “Oh please child. Please.”
Me: “Oh my god, my mom just called me a slutwhore.”

    Actually, yes. I think that it goes into the whole thing where married men ultimately live longer and are healthier than single men. Also, if you’re a chick, they want to know if you’re in a relationship so they can make sure you’re not being abused.

    I think docs ask a lot of things that may not be medically relevant for everyone. But, again, if you’re divorced there may be a higher likelihood that you’d be suffering from depression or stress, and maybe that would indicate that he’d need to ask about that, and then maybe that would lead him to think the stomach pain you’re in there complaining about is an stress-induced ulcer. They ask everyone everything. That’s why those questionnaires are so long.

    Wait, was there a question about your sex life? I’ve never seen that on a form before, but I would probably think that absolutely that’s a medical relevant question. If you frequently experience pain during sex, for example, and that makes your sex life less than satisfactory, then he’d want to investigate the cause of that discomfort. Especially when sex isn’t something a lot of people feel comfortable bringing up with their doctor, they can just put it in the questions and he knows whether or not you want to talk about it without you having to bring it up.

    OK- I get all of Natalie’s reasons, but where did you get from your mom’s comment that she thinks you are a slutwhore?
