I understand that when analyzing gynecology concerns of females 16-38 years old, that often this becomes a sensitive issue, particularly if somebody in power is in the room with them. Basic questions posed are; when was your last menstruation? Many of them do not immediately know and end up guessing that the next question is, are you sexually active? You get a look of amazement! Or maybe some would wonder why this is essential. I remember that it is up to individuals to pose this question (Bickley & Szilagyi, 2017). Have you ever lost a child (for those who mention having children) when questioned, and if so, how? Some of the looks I get are from women that look afraid and some are the anger that I would judge them.

If these people are of legal age and inquire for confidentiality and the requests are honestly asked, I will request the other party to leave the room. It can help with current or potential diagnoses to clarify to the interviewee the significance of asking these questions (Jarvis, 2008). Stress is a non-judgmental environment in the healthcare department, so they can be open and frank to share information. To maintain a comprehension of the knowledge given to them, strive not to use medical slang but talk to them in simple language.

As Christians, we are followers of Christ who are compassionate, empathic, unbiased, and human advocates. These characteristics are part of the culture of nursing. When they come to our presence, patients would feel comfortable. The creator realized that man could not survive alone, so he formed a society, so we now become the guardian of our brothers and sisters by doing this. So, we know that any details may be vulnerable when conducting a physical test or simply taking a clinical history from a client (Jarvis, 2008). Know your views and remember that there will be variations and that they should be embraced. Do not force your views on others, but be fair and know that anything under the sun has time and place.
