LET’S TALK ABOUT CONDOM

During my clinical exposure at the City Puericulture and Family Planning Center, instead of waiting for "miracles", our clinical instructor decided to talk about contraceptives. I don’t know why I’m very interested about the topic. And I guess, my group mates think the same way. Our CI let us choose a topic to be discussed in the group. Without hesitation, I chose condom. My super- ego speaks, “Hey, why are you so engrossed with condoms?” My id replies, “Well… I like to talk about things that block my sanity, and condom is one of them, believe me.”

Condoms guarantee safety. It prevents pregnancy. Failure rate is low with 3 to 20%. It also protects against Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Some condoms have those different styles and designs printed on them with a fruit flavor (No! It’s not a flavor, it’s a smell… Whatever). Thank God, they don’t consider Rachael Newman of American Psycho2 for that matter.


At the food court just left wing of Central Warehouse Club is the place where I, colleagues, chums loves to bunch. It is just a walking distance from Colegio if you’re poor like me without a five- peso tricycle fare. It is the most attractive “caller” for window shoppers, purchase- outers, passersby, bystanders, etc. It is the place to relax and sometimes a rendezvous for lovers and text mates. I tell you, it is affordable, clean and of course, the food is yummy. But I still prefer to eat those in streets where I can spend 5 to 10 pesos only such as kwek- kwek and isaw.

Just yesterday, I and a friend of mine met there. After taking our order, we sat in the vacant chair in front of Chow-Ann’s. As the ketchup smudged in my teeth, she suddenly said, “I’m pregnant.” Oh c’mon, how could that be? Ahh.. err.. uhm, I don’t think I’ll be able to finish telling it. All I can say, they did not use condoms. And besides I have too much to think about than to be pestered with it. I have a lot on my plate. Hahayaan ko muna ang problema ng iba sa blog na ‘to. So, it’s time for me to proceed for the next meat of this rant. Peace out!

I’m already a senior nursing student this coming new school year. But I’m still a novice (I hope I used it right). I still have few DR and OR cases. As required by the Philippine Regulatory Commission, nurse wannabes must completed 5 handle, 5 assist and 5 cord dress for Delivery cases and 5 minor and major operations before taking the Nurse Licensure Exam. As of this writing, I only have 1 handle, 2 assist, 3 cord dress, 4 minor operations and a zilch for major operation. But I still have 1 year to comply. Just wish me luck.

Sorry (with due respect to my Clinical Instructors), but I have to blame the schedule and the clinical areas given to me. The reason why since the first day of the summer semester until now I still have no new cases is that I’m exposed on a primary hospitals and a puericulture center where limited patients are admitted. Plus this week, I have no schedules clinical exposure as posted in the bulletin board. Plus I have no OR/ DR duty in KDI. Ergo, no new case is equal to a disappointed Richard.

When will things get better?

That’s why they (CIs) are subject of criticisms is because of the students (like me) cannot keep silent on issues that concern them. As the maxim goes, when there is smoke, there is fire. But then again as they said, it is not part of some evil plan to fail us. It happens beyond their control. They don’t wear condoms, that is.
