Going to the doctors tommorow! :( - August 19th 2009, 12:30 PM

Im so nervous to go to the doctors tommorow. I have to get my yearly physical and a shot. Im nervous cause I know she will ask me if im sexually active and I have to say yes since I am and last time I said no cause I wasn't. I'm nervous cause Im afraid she will make me get a pap or w/e those are called and Ive never had one! Will i HAVE to get one or can I just say no? I shouldnt care what she thinks cause she prob has many patients who come in who are active right? I get nervous talking about the subject of being active!!

Also I was wondering i'm going to ask her if I can be put on birth control.. Since im a college student I can still be on my dads health insurance. If I do get put on BC, Will my parents find out that i'm on it since Im on there health insurance?? Im nervous about that cause they don't know im active or ever have been active!!

ahh I get so very nervous to go to the doctors eeek!!

Hey There Grace,

I was just in this situation when I got my last physical for school. My doctor didn't make me get a pap. She just asked if I was on birth control, and then that was it.

I don't think you have anything to worry about. You should ask your doctor about birth control and ask her opinion on the best one. I don't think it would hurt.

Try your best to stay confident. I can understand how you can be nervous but, it's really not that bad. I wish you the best of luck with your situation. I'm sure everything will be just fine.

Take care,
