You should look through this section if you haven't already. It covers common STIs and ways to minimize your risk of exposure in the future.
The laws governing what information clinics are required to collect vary by state (and may vary by county, municipality, etc.). Your local Planned Parenthood will be able to tell you what information they need if you call (and you can make an appointment at the same time). You can find the phone numbers, locations, and services offered near you with the zip-code search on their website (you can even make an appointment from there). They will do everything they can (and have been successful so far) to keep your medical information, including any records of your visit, private and confidential.
But even if there is a chance your mother will find out, you should be screened if you suspect that you have contracted an STI - and remember to have a second screening six months after the first even if the first one comes back negative.
