When not to go to your Doctor !

Today I saw a young couple who'd been married for 4 months and were worried that they had not yet got pregnant, even though they had been having sex frequently. I needed to sit down and explain some of the facts of life to them - the most important one being that Nature is not efficient at making babies, and it can take normal fertile couples as long as 1 year in order to conceive. I requested them to be patient and continue trying on their own - after all, it's much more fun making babies in the bedroom than going to a doctor !
Many patients misuse their doctor's services by seeking medical help for problems which are self-limited, and will get better on their own. It's just as important to know when not to go to your doctor !
