Doctors typically ask you if you’re sexually active if the matter is crucial to your medical health. But now, doctors are allowed to ask you personal questions about your sex life — like how many partners you’ve had and if you’ve had same-sex partners — even if it’s unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help.
Apparently, that’s the new rule under President Obama‘s health care law. And some doctors aren’t happy about it. New York cardiologist Dr. Adam Budzikowski tells the New York Post that the requirement is “nasty business,” adding that the sex questions are “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive” and he can’t think of an occasion when a cardiologist would need such personal, sexual information.
What do you have to say about it? Is it acceptable for doctors to inquire about a patient’s sexual history? Or is it totally inappropriate if it’s not related to the medical attention you’re seeking?
