Health care professionals don't see it that way. They can't take a chance by trusting what the patient says. My husband had a vasectomy and "2" failed reversals and yet they demanded I take a pregnancy test before surgery at I hospital I worked at! They can't take a chance at having unnecessary malpractice suits.

ETA: I hadn't read thru all the posts when I wrote this.

You are still making a good point! I think that trust is awesome and a staple in any relationship but when a child comes into the picture it's a different story. Also, doctors (and others) know that people lie to make their relationship seem like the best ever. If I was a doc and a patient told me they're a virgin and so was their husband and he's not human so he doesn't even know what cheating is, I would STILL want a test for my own security. To each his own though. They say ignorance is bliss.

Plus, it shouldn't be the burden of the healthcare professional to figure out who's telling the truth, who's lying and who's delusional. By giving every woman the test, all the guesswork is eliminated.

Well,my youngest is 13,so I missed the mandatory test.
Wouldn't have bothered me,as long as insurance paid for it.
