Hiya, I read the article on this site by Bettie about the STD testing process (it was very informative, thanks!). But I have just one question..and as usual, it's a pretty stupid question. The last time I went to my gyno, as I was leaving, she told me, "See you when you're 18!" She meant that I wouldn't have to come back until then. What's so important about going back when I'm 18? I thought it might have something to do with STD testing, but I wasn't sure. I mean, when you turn 18 do they do a STD test no matter if you're sexually active or not or something? Thanks

Umm, no.

Are you, perchance, seventeen and was that her way of saying she'd see you in a year?

Yes, I am 17 *now* but when I went and she said that, I was only 16

I'm guessing she just meant she'd see you in a year or so, babe.
