Did the Eye Doctor See?

Posted by: kar4 on Sat Jun 9, 2007

I was a ophthalmologist's assistant and we were working late to finish up seeing all of the patients at one of our satellite offices where the doc and I were the only staffers. I came out from having assisted the doc in preparing for the final patient. When I walked around my desk she noticed the giant red stain on the back of my once all-white uniform skirt.

I think I'd had a tampon in, but didn't realize how late it was getting and had forgotten to check. I didn't feel a thing! (As a matter of fact, usually when I have a sensation that makes me feel like I'm flooding, it turns out to be nothing.)

Once he called the patient back into the exam room, I went into the thankfully en suite ladies' room and did the best clean-up possible and scurried back to my desk.

After the woman left, it was very awkward as I tried to do our usual closing up procedure while keeping my back away from the doc! I'm sure he noticed that something "suspicious" was going on, and who knows what he imagined. I wish I'd just come out and told him the problem. He was a gentleman (not to mention a doctor) and would have understood, I think. Unfortunately, I just felt it was my shameful secret.
