mom won’t let me get tested


i’m 17 and i asked my mom if i could go to the gynecologist bc i think i have a yeast infection or possibly an sti. she doesn’t know that i am sexually active and she would probably kick me out if she found out.

she said i wasn’t allowed to talk to the doctor by myself bc she didn’t want me to tell the doctor anything she didn’t know. i tried to explain to her that i just simply didn’t feel comfortable about talking about my reproductive health with around her and she said that i wouldn’t be i didn’t have something to hide.

i’m scared that i will get sicker if i have an sti and can’t tell them or my yeast infection will never go away. i dont know what to do
