my bestfriend Ally keeps asking me for advice and I don't know what to tell her. her boyfriend called her crying the other day and told her he'd cheated on her. he let another girl give him a blow job and she gave him gonorreah. he didn't know he had it at the time and then had sex with Ally. she's scared to DEATH to tell her mother she needs to be checked for gonorreah.what will happen if she waits like weeks to go to the doctor. can anyone help me to give her advice??

I agree with mop...there are probably after hour clinics where u guys live that she can go to, and they won't tell her parents. She should go soon though, why would she wait a week?

She should go right now. Telling her mother isn't going to be half as scary as an untreated case of gonorrhea could be, and the longer she waits to get treated (if she has it) the more at risk for Pelvic Inflammatory Disease and other complications she is. In addition, having any one STD makes you more suceptible to catching others than someone free of disease is. http://www.scarleteen.com/pink/pages/stds.html
This aside, it goes without saying that she needs to practice safer sex. We'd all really like to think we or our partners would never cheat, and that is totally understandable. However, literally betting our lives on that doesn't make it any more guaranteed, and puts us at serious risk.
