Ask Beth «, JSS r you 8et VD by comin e vet Y close to inter course? Can you get pregnant by coming very close? If I had sexual contact about a month ago, shouldn't VD (if I had It) have shown up by now? ; - ii lSt * her ,L a IS ?L in Massachus e«s that minors can't be medically treated without a parent's consent?Can a doctor treat a minor for VD without telling his or her parents? -- Lacks Info Dear Lacks Info: 1 -- You can indeed get VD by coming ' very close. If your partner is infected and your sexual organs come into contact, even though there is no penetration, the germs that cause VD may be passed from one person to the other, spreading the infection. 2 -- Yoircan also become pregnant by coming very close. If the sperm reaches the mouth of the vagina it may be able to travel into the Fallopian tubes by itself, and hence to the uterus. It is not very likely, but it has happened. 3 -- You could have VD and not know it, because the symptoms are often not noticeable at all, especially in females. 4 -- Minors can be treated for VD without parental consent. 5 -- A doctor who treated you for VD would not tell your parents without your permission. · Dear Beth: I am a freshman at a large university, and live In a coed dorm. Some males make a habit of peeking into the showers. This is very embarrassing, and I can't face these people in the hall. How can I explain to them that what they are doing is wrong? -- All Washed Up Dear All Washed lip: Tell them they are acting like fourth graders, the age when little boys are apt to spy on little girls, and think bedroom jokes are a panic. Mature men don't act like Peeping Toms, unless they are true "voyeurs," those unfortunates who get their kicks out of watching naked women because they are too sick for normal sex. It is their problem, really. Stare them down in the hall . Or better yet, say loudly for all to hear "If you idiots peek in the shower any more, I'm posting a.complaint on the bulletin board, names and all." I think they'll fade into the woodwork. » Dear Beth: I am 13 and haven't started my period yet. All my friends have started theirs. Is it normal for a girl to be so late? -- Frantic Dear Frantic: Definitely yes. You are well within the normal range. · Dear Beth: I have heard that during pelvic examinations you have to lie on a table with your legs up in some kind of stirrups. Then the doctor inserts instruments inside you. Exactly what does the doctor do and how old do you have to be? -- Afraid To Go to the Doc Dear Afraid: You are essentially right. The stirrups are to raise up the knees, which makes it easier for the doctor to examine you. The instrument, called a "speculum," holds the walls of the vagina apart, so the doctor can see inside. It looks scary, but does not hurt. The doctor looks at the vagina and cervix and then usually takes a '-'Pap smear," a sample of the natural moisture, on a cotton swab. This is sent to a lab for a cancer test. It is a routine check so needn't be alarming, and it's very important. Next, the physician will reach into the vagina with a couple of fingers, while pressing down on the abdomen with the other hand. This is to feel the size and shape of the uterus, ovaries and so forth to make sure everything is in the right place, and that there are no lumps or swellings. Sometimes a similar check is made via the rectum. It may feel uncomfortable, but not really painful. The first pelvic exam is usually given when a girl has a problem of some kind, perhaps a vaginal infection,.or needs to be fitted for a diaphragm or IUD, or suspects VD. Therefore there is no "usual" age. · Dear Beth: My man won't use condoms. He says it isn't worth It because they aren't very efficient and often rip or leak. So at the moment we are just riding on luck. Is he right? -- Nervous Dear Nervous: No. Properly used, condoms are probably as effective as diaphragms and have the added benefit of giving some protection from gonorrhea. When they are rolled on all the way to the penile base, and care is taken in removal, there is little danger pf leakage. American-made condoms are carefully tested by the Food and Drug Administration, and tearing or bursting is practically unheard of. Those from other countries are not subject to our regulations though, so they may not be as good. (Beth welcomes letters and will answer as many as possible in her column.
