In a story that tugs at the heartstrings, a man finds himself at odds with his girlfriend's persistent postpartum health concerns. From urinary incontinence to severe back pain, his girlfriend's complaints seem endless, despite medical professionals assuring them that these are normal parts of recovery. The man, now bearing all their expenses after his girlfriend quit her job due to her back pain, is left frustrated and weary. He finally confronts her, expressing his exhaustion over her constant medical visits. As we dive into the internet's reactions, ask yourself: Is he being unsympathetic, or is his frustration justified? Let's see what the online world thinks...🌍

"YTA mate. Your girlfriend is obviously experiencing pain and discomfort." 😡

"YTA. She should get a second opinion from a different OBGYN. What she's describing *doesn't* sound normal, and if she's describing back pain consistent with kidney infections and blood in her urine, she should be checked for a goddamn kidney infection. This is a problem faced by millions of women around the world, at any point in their lives but also very frequently after childbirth, major problems are outright ignored as 'that's normal' and 'that's just what happens after childbirth' but it's completely unacceptable. And you're doing the same damn thing to her."

"YTA. Huge YTA. Your GF is in pain. Just because the OBGYN hasn't found anything to explain her pain doesn't mean it's not real, and you can't make that call. A doctor can't tell her she's 'fine,' they can only tell her they can't find a physical explanation for the pain she's experiencing. It doesn't mean there isn't a reason. If you were more sympathetic, she might be less frightened. Look after your girlfriend." ❤️
