Blood testing, is it necessary?0 1 month ago by gabbyleach
I hate to be a big baby, here, but I wanted to know if blood testing is necessary. I know that it is highly recommended, but I have the biggest fear of needles. I don't know what it is, but everytime I see one I really freak out and I have to have nurses pin me down.I'm about six weeks along, if my calculations are correct, and I know I need to visit the doctor to have everything checked out, but I want to know before I go in if I can refuse the bloodwork but still have ultrasounds, sonograms, and other such things. Any input would help, thank you!
Yes, blood tests are important. You won't be able to opt out of all of them. It's better if you just s**k it up.
You can opt out of anything you want to. They can't force you. A doctor can also opt to not have you as a patient.
