I love this! Perfect to have when it’s the 50th anniversary of the Beatles album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band (May 26, 1967). Also fitting when Peter is a huge fan of rock n’ roll! 😎🎸
I'm sexually active so I know I should get a Pap smear but I'm also underaged so if I ask to get one my mother will know I'm having sex? But I'm a lesbian so can it wait until I am 21?
My advice here is to ask your mom to take you to the OBGYN because like, it’s really good to see them regardless of a pap. Don’t tell your mom you want a pap, just tell her you want a women’s well visit to make sure everything is fine downstairs.
You can also ask your family doctor during your next appointment. They might be certified to do a pap in office or maybe they can talk to your mom about the benefits of an OBGYN without mentioning a pap or that you’re sexually active.
Also, this is not related to my advice and maybe I’m just overdue for a soapbox rant, but I really wish we lived in a society that didn’t shame sex so much that teens and even adults are afraid to let their parents know they have sex. Or to talk about sex ever. It’s a natural part of life and it’s really, really important to be protected and safe and I think a huge part of that is not having a negative connotation or feeling like it’s something that needs to be hidden. I think teens who are open with their parents with this shit not only have a better relationship with their parents, but have a better attitude towards sex. All that said, my mom would never be open to that and will shut down any conversation that gets even close to sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.
