Dear My GYN Told My Mother Untrue Info About My Sex Life,

TeenHealthFX thinks that it is important for you to speak to your doctor and to your mother to clarify what the truth really is about your sexual history if you feel that misinformation has been presented by your doctor to your mother. It would also be helpful for you to communicate to your doctor and your mother how this made you feel, since feeling like a “slutty liar” is a pretty awful way to feel about yourself. FX would also encourage you to speak to your doctor about the way in which she decided to disclose this to your mother in terms of any impact it may have had on your ability to trust her. Finally, if you feel that the issue of being sexually active creates tension in your relationship with your mother, it would be helpful to discuss that as well.

If you feel that you are not able to resolve this with your mother and/or doctor, then FX suggests you speak to a trusted adult who could provide you with some support and guidance in how to deal with the situation. You could speak to a school counselor, school nurse, private therapist, extended family member or any other trusting adult.

If you live in northern New Jersey and need help finding a therapist you can call the Access Center from Atlantic Behavioral Health at 888-247-1400. Outside of this area you can log onto the US Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website for referrals in your area. You can also contact your insurance company to get a list of in-network mental health providers or check with your school social worker or psychologist to get a list of referrals in your area.
