I think my doctor is a conservative

(Link)
...and she knows my mother.

All this, and me not having the time or the will to find a new doctor right now, is why imma asking teh internets.

I looked at Planned Parenthood Toronto, but their hours just don't fit my schedule at all!



Or maybe I'm a chicken. Several times in the pass I have raised the issue of being on contraceptives, and she shot me down by asking me if I was in a relationship yet. What I really want to say is: Do I have to be in a relationship first? ...but she knows my mother and most of my extended family.

...and she has crosses in her office, and if she's buddy with my aunt, that she probably belongs in the Baptist branch too.

If you want birth control pills for any reason, you're going to have to see a doctor - some doctor. The internets can't tell you which pill to take, and even if I could, I wouldn't. I wouldn't give medical advice, nor would I take it from a complete stranger.

i would speak up and tell her that your real interest in contraceptives is not for sexual protection, but for the hormonal benefits surrounding your menstrual cycle. many doctors who are otherwise conservative will understand that.

also, BELIEVE me, being raised catholic i understand your concern, but patient privacy laws absolutely forbid your doctor from saying (or even insinuating) ANY of your personal information to ANYONE without your consent. i know it's kinda freaky, but explain your concerns to her and show her that you're well informed...you may be surprised by her reaction.
