Is planned parenthood a teen sexual health clinic?

Is planned parenthood a teen sexual health clinic?

At times: Planned parenthood is a generalized substitute for gynecologic and general health care for women. Most of their efforts are in pelvic inflammatory disease, cancer detection and birth control.

Female teen sexual health is addresed there. ...Read more

Oral sex. Tested 2 wks for std and ngu. clear. No discharge.Returned to clinic as tip of urethra irritated. swab= 7wbc=ngu. 1st ngu test wrong?

Maybe: Life is not exact. Tests are not perfect. Tests have false positives and false negatives... which is why their results must be interpreted in the context of a patient's symptoms, clinical situation, and risk factors. A positive result matching the symptoms is likely to be a valid result. A negative result matching the lack of symptoms is likely to be valid. Sometimes the unexpected happens in life ...Read more

I see urine resting at opening of meatus. Tested at clinic & doctor STD free. Precaution UTI meds given. Still see same. What could be wrong?

I see urine resting at opening of meatus. Tested at clinic & doctor STD free. Precaution UTI meds given. Still see same. What could be wrong?

Probably, okay...: How long have you seen such? Have you hurt in voiding at all? Any urethral discharge? If just having dripping after voiding, called postvoid dribbling, do "urethral milking" x 2-5 times by "pressuring and swiping" urethra from the perineum (behind the sac) toward urethral opening until no more drip before sending penis into pants. That would help most & you do not have STD or UTI. More? Contact me ...Read more

Suboxon clinic a pharmacy or physician cash-cow?

Suboxon clinic a pharmacy or physician cash-cow?

Distinct cash loss: For this doc. Done as a public service and have to deal with the dea office visits on top of it. No fun having three dea attorneys question you and treat you like a criminal for 2 hours. I can't speak for the pharmacies. Addicts are the least reliable when it comes to paying their bills, especially if they relapse. And no, there are no kick-backs as they are illegal in the us at least. ...Read more

Recently found bill for gf with tests: trachomatis, neisseria, trichomonas, pathologist review, surepath pap. I think she's cheatin.  R these routine?

Trust but clarify: These are routine tests. If you are paying out of pocket, it comes as a shock! ask your doctor to inform you about the reasons for these tests. If you know what the tests are for, you can decline what you think are not necessary. This will help you develop a trusting relationship with your doctor. ...Read more

I'm a girl,my 3yr partner was diagnosed w/ gardnerella vaginalis(not chronic).He's fine now,no STDs,they said I don't need to get tested.Is that ok?

I'm a girl,my 3yr partner was diagnosed w/ gardnerella vaginalis(not chronic).He's fine now,no STDs,they said I don't need to get tested.Is that ok?

Confusing...: I'd like to help, but Gardnerella is a normal bactera in the vagina. It doesn't infect men and there no is accurate way to diagnose it in men. I wonder if your partner has nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). It's an STD, even though standard STD tests (gonorrhea, chlamyida, etc) are negative. You and he should find a doctor who understands STDs and genital infections. Good luck! ...Read more
