Get tested: Many states have rules that allow minors to seek testing and care for std's without parental notification.I encourage you to bring your parents into the process, they can be great support, do not avoid testing. Quick identification of the possible agent gives you the best chance of a good outcome.Talk with your parents or check for local clinics.Knowing is the best solution to worry.
