It sounds like this is really playing on your mind. Like you have said STI can be stressful since most of the time they show no symptoms so the only way to know is by going for an STI test.
Common STI like chlamydia may not show symptoms, but can be treated with antibiotics. Also going for an STI test and having good results can be a great relief.
It’s normal to feel scared going to the clinic for your first visit. When you visit a clinic in BC Canada all the information is kept strictly confidential. This means no information from the visit will be given to your parents.
I would recommend visiting one of the youth clinics or options for sexual health clinics that are around BC. Have a look at our clinic finder which has a list of clinics in your area.
When you visit a clinic a number of different tests will be offered to you. If a woman is having no symptoms most STI tests can be checked with a urine and blood samples with no need for a physical exam.
Also let us know if you need help finding a clinic in your area. Some people also like to chat with the nurse on our chat line about any specific concerns.
