OB-GYNs have revealed the most outrageous things their patients’ partners have said or done, from the man who wanted his wife to get an “ extra bonding ” after vaginal delivery to the friend who took birth control pills.
Women’s health care professionals shared their stories in a recent Reddit thread started by user u / thatoneapexlegend, who asked, “OB / GYNs from Reddit what’s the most amazing thing a spouse or friend has said?”
The anecdotes ranged from bizarre to alarming, which amazed many readers that some adults know little about the human body and sex – especially when it comes to pregnancy.

Crazy: The anecdotes ranged from bizarre to alarming, baffling many readers at how little adults know about the human body and sex
A Reddit user whose mother is a primary care physician recalled how the doctor had a 15-year-old girl insist that she couldn’t be pregnant after her test came back positive.
“My mother confirmed the pregnancy, but the girl still refused to believe it was true,” the person said. “She then explained to my mother that it was impossible for her to get pregnant because her boyfriend had told her that if she was completely still during sex, she was not” sexually active “and could not get pregnant.”
Another person who worked in a pharmacy said they had a 16-year-old girl come in to “ pick up her birth control exactly two weeks early every month ” – and the reason wasn’t the one they expected.
This was immediately labeled as odd as BC comes in a handy packaging that makes it easy to keep track of the daily dose and birth control is not quite a drug that people are looking for to get as many extra pills as possible (like Xanax , say), ‘the employee explained.
“After a few months of this, the pharmacist confronted her and found that she was taking her pill every day and so was her boyfriend.”
In addition to confusion about sex and pregnancy, medical professionals also talked about the rude and inconsiderate husbands they’ve dealt with over the years.
Last month, a father asked one of our OBs for an ‘extra stitch’ during his wife’s postpartum repair. Her immediate response was, “Exactly how small does it have to be, sir?” F ** king legend on our unit, now, ‘shared one user.
Another told how a mother came for a check-up two weeks after giving birth and her vaginal tear stitches had disappeared.
“It turns out hubby took them out because they were bothering him during sex,” the doctor shared.
Yikes: One husband wanted his wife to have an ‘extra stitch’ after having a vaginal delivery, while another was concerned about his pregnant wife’s ‘weight gain’ – when she was underweight
Another who worked in a hospital said they were dealing with a man who was needlessly concerned about his pregnant wife’s weight gain.
In a note to our patient, there was one from an earlier office visit that said, “ Main complaint: Husband is concerned about his wife’s weight gain during pregnancy. “She was actually under the weight she needed at the time,” says the physician staffer noted.
Meanwhile, a man didn’t want his wife’s female doctor to touch her during her vaginal exam and it really upset him.
[My mom] did a manual vaginal exam for a woman and the man asked her (in an angry voice) if there was any other way to take the exam than using her fingers because he didn’t like her fingers inside his wife stopped, ”the commentator explained.
At the other end of the spectrum, another guy was a bit too open with his partner’s OB-GYN, even though he was complimentary.
“He complimented my surgical prowess and stated that he had been to many strip clubs, and he has never seen such a beautiful caesarean scar,” said the doctor.
One of the strangest stories, however, was about a new father who kept taking off his clothes in the hospital – and then walking around.
“The nurses had to have several conversations with him to keep his clothes on,” explains Reddit user. He just kept stripping and walking around. As if he were going to the coffee station in the hallway wearing only his white stockings. And he would be naked in the hospital room.
‘We had to ask him to wear pants and a shirt in the hallway and at least pants in the hospital room. No, he tried not to have sex with her, ”the person added.
