From the South to New England, from the inner city to open country, it can be difficult to understand other fellow Americans.
Birth Control Language Barrier:
BeYaz or Not Be Yaz, that is the question...
Female That Wants Birth Control: I need my pills refilled.
CP: Okay. Which ones?
FTWBC: The birth control.
CP: Do you know the name?
FTWBC: It BeYaz
CP: Okay. Um. Is it YAZ? or is it BEyaz?
FTWBC: I said it Be Yaz
CP: Okay. Let's try it this way. Be it Yaz or Be it Beyaz?
CP: What's right?
FTWBC: Be Yaz.
CP: It is for BEYaz?
FTWBC: That's what I said.
CP: <looks in computer. it's Yaz.>
Now just imagine this not as a patient calling in for a refill but as a representative of the prescriber's office calling in a new prescription.
