Sort of. It depends.: If the child is an older teen, and the relationship is healthy and mature (in that the couple is safe from infections and unwanted pregnancies), then the doctor will very likely keep things confidential so that the child can come to that doctor with sexually-related medical questions or issues, without worrying about her parents getting involved. The situation is different, with younger teens.
