ok my mom told me a couple months ago that with me getting a little older she thought that i needed to go see a gynecologist for the first time...so she made me an appointment its wednesday...well i was talking to one of my friends and they said that since im only 15 that anything i tell the docter she can tell my mom...well i have a boyfriend and we have been dating for awhile now and we had sex for the first time friday...so im afraid that if i tell the docter that i am nolonger a virgin that she will tell my mom...but at the same time i dont want to lie to the docter about it...and my boyfriend got mad at me because i told him i was going to tell the docter the truth...what do i do???
doctors are required by law to keep patient information confidential. if you're unsure about that still, ask your doctor what their policy is. you must tell your doctor the truth about your sexual history so they can better assist you in your health
