I'm 12 years old. I had to go the emergency room 3 times since July. When I went there the nurses and doctor would ask me repeatedly if I was pregnant. And now when I go to the doctor for a regular check up the nurse asked me if I'm pregnant. I understand that if I was they would have to know but is it really necessary to ask a 12 year old if there pregnant?

the doctors and nurses would be negligent if they failed to ask you a critical question like that. If you're a female of child bearing age, they have to ask to be certain that they wouldn't be harming your fetus if they did any medical procedures or operations.

Better they get in trouble for asking, then get in trouble for not asking.
