Ok I've hda sex before and i do believe that im most likely ok, but i really intensly worry like everyday. But theres one problem.. I want a STD test, but im 16 and i dont know how to come about it, because im gay and my mom doesnt know nor my dad and im afraid if i go to the docter, he will tell my parents or something. The docter already asked me if i ever had sex before and i said no, because i freaked out and was worried he would tell my mom... does anyone have any advice for me? cause im kinda scared crapless and i just want a STD test to know im clean or to help prevent anything from turning into anything...
There is Doctor/Patient confidentuality. They can't tell anyone. They will ask you if they can call your house or mail you stuff, just say no at the doctors office. Go to Plan Parenthood, they could probably help you out to. Good luck.
I think you should go back to your doctor and ask that your conversation be kept confidential - most docs who work with adolescents will honor that request.There are relatively new laws about the release of confidential/personal health information that your doc has to comply with. You could also be referred to a clinic in the community which may offer confidential testing. Is there is also a community resource for gay adolescents which could help you. The important thing is to be tested and get your anxiety level reduced.Good luck!
