Honey, I don't know what else we can do for you. We've suggested you see a GYN again and again and again and again.

In general, it is best to go when not on a period, but if you have the appointment and got your period, chances are you can keep it anyway, and I suggest you do.

If you are going under your parents insurance, they will know you went because it will appear on their statement. If you're ready to be having sex, you're also ready to take care of your own sexual healthcare, so you can go to an independent clinic and pay for it yourself, and have your privacy assured. if you can't do that, chances are, you aren't in a good position to be sexually active yet -- esp. combined with the fact that you have to be dishonest -- and that's just that.

Also, I see that you're in New York City. There are places you can go for FREE and confidential GYN care. I suggest The Door - http://door.org, or Planned Parenthood if you're under 18. http://www.ppnyc.org
