1Have you been to the gynecologist yet? That is the question my mom asked me at 15 when I informed her about a change I had noticed in my body.
2So yes, at 15 I had been to a gynecologist. I was living in New York City and had visited a Planned Parenthood there.
3It was my clinician at Planned Parenthood who suggested I speak with my pediatrician if I was seeking a referral. She was compassionate and professional and told me she was happy to treat me for regular checkups, and when the time came, for STD and cancer screenings.
4No judgement, no questions asked. Planned Parenthood provided a safe place where I could be treated with gentle guidance.
5I’m sure there isn’t one person here who has not been helped out by Planned Parenthood directly or otherwise.
