Great question! What you talk about with your doctor is private and confidential. In most states, many sexual health services like birth control and STI testing are confidential for minors. However, the specifics of the law depend on where you live. If you live in the United States, you can check out this handy chart from the Guttmacher Institute to see what services are confidential.
You Asked It: Will My Doctor Tell My Parents That I’m Having Sex?
BCBenefits makes it easier than ever to get birth control for free. I decided to take an informal poll of young women from lots of different backgrounds to find out how their mothers came to know of their sexual activity. Here are some tips, which can also be applied to talking with your dad, aunt, other mom, etc. Based on my poll and my own experience, a key thing mothers want is for their daughters to avoid making the same mistakes they feel like they made. You can always commiserate about period side effects, especially cramps or bloating. There are many things that bond us as women—leverage them! I learned these tips the hard way.
