ONE healthcare receptionist was left SPEECHLESS when a patient came in to complain that she fell pregnant while wearing her contraceptive NuvaRing… on her wrist.
Maddy, from the US, tells how the patient was absolutely irate asking to speak to the doctor, who she claimed gave her contraception that did not work.
This popular form of contraception is most certainly not supposed to be worn on the wrist, and the healthcare worker was in disbelief that the patient did not know this.
As explained by the NHS, the NuvaRing is a small soft, plastic ring that you place inside your vagina.
Taking to her TikTok account, Maddie reenacted the shocking incident she had with the patient.
Posting under the domain @itsdramaddy, she said "working as a healthcare receptionist" under the caption "little baby problem."

Adding the text "based on a true story," she said the patient entered the clinic all flustered and after asking her for her date of birth she said: "Hi my name is Imma, Imma Winer, and I need to see the doctor immediately."
Holding up her wrist where she was wearing the NuvaRing, the patient added: "I have a bone to pick with him because THIS, isn't working."
Shocked, the receptionist responded: "you're wearing your birth control as a bracelet?"
Adding: "Um, OK, so that's NOT how you use that."

"This is why doctors now explain the most simple things that are literally common sense and people still do this" commented one person.
Another added: "Even if the doctor didn't explain it, you would think they would read the humongous paper the pharmacy gave them."
"I don’t think I could handle that with a straight face" commented a third.
