Herpes??

Posted , 3 users are following.

this bump has been here for about a week or so... im afraid to see a doc because last time i went for STD testing after i was raped the doctor told me if i couldnt explain to a male doctor why i needed to be in the office i shouldnt be having sex anyway. im extremely upset and already made my mum go in with me (im over 18, im on her insurance because im in college and it still applies) and my mother said any more of these unecessary and preventable visits ill have to pay for them out of pocket...

      that's what i was thinking. doctor told me it was herpes and then didnt call me for 2 weeks.. i called back and then she said it wasnt. it was definitely an unprofessional and disappointing experience. thank you so much for your help

    in grown hair by the looks of things. hot compress should bring it to the surface and soften the skin. it may come out with exfoliation however you may need to use tweezers.

    Although when making an appointment specify you wish to see a female doctor. unfortunatly the doctor is right if you arent able to talk to a doctor you probably arent fully ready to be having sex. good luck x

      i never stated i was unable to explain my situation. i expressed my desire for a female nurse IN ADVANCE, who, even after explaining my situation, told me i shouldnt even have sex if i cant explain my violent sexual assault to a male nurse.

      extremely unprofessional and unnaceptable.
