pregnancyFile this one in the OH GOD drawer. According to New York magazine, "birth-control sabotage and pregnancy coercion" is on the rise. Kat Stoeffel writes, "If you don't hear much these days about the stereotypical gold digger who lies about being on the pill to ensnare a man into marriage or eighteen years of child support payments, that may be because doctors are now being told to look for just the opposite: The woman whose partner sabotages her birth control. She's not so hard to find."
This phenomenon has become so problematic that "the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG) issued a committee recommendation urging ob-gyns to screen patients for these behaviors, collectively known as reproductive coercion." So the next time you go get a pap smear, be prepared to be asked something like, "Does your partner support your decision about when or if you want to become pregnant?"
