Oops! Chlamydia at 15?

Dear Billy, my 15-year-old daughter has chlamydia. We have learned this because her boyfriend has it. We’ve had some conversations about sex, but clearly more of those are in order. If this were your daughter, how would you deal with it?

The last thing I’d do is take her quietly to the family doctor to get her treated. I’d take her to the nearest public free clinic to endure the whole hours-long experience at ground zero, which should be embarrassing for both of you. She’ll meet lots of interesting people there – people with whom she might never have imagined she’d have something in common, least of all an STD. Let her savor the factory line processing without the kid gloves, answer the myriad questions about how many times she’s had sex, vaginally, anally, or orally, with and without condoms, and used drugs. Cross your fingers for a ball-busting social worker who will dish it out extra heavy.

    [Lovesick Billy: Good grief, Dee, that’s quite a fit of ill-spelled, vitriolic judgment for a woman in your line of work (www.whispersmedia.com). Are you feeling okay? For the record, I don’t believe there are any studies that show that a single teenage case of the clap dooms one to a life of psychological disorder, divorce, and frigidity, but I certainly admire your optimism. Has this been your experience? If so, I’d like to interview you. Unfortunately you totally lost us with that ‘dad’ part, but I’m sure it was a doozy. Sending you love and positive vibes, just the same. :)]

    [Oh, I get the ‘dad’ thing. You think it was the girl’s Father who asked me. Nope. It was her Mom.]

    Interesting idea–next you can sign her up for the mental help she will need to repair the damager to her sexuality that will surface a few years from now when she is unhappily married and completely fridget and psychologically damaged because of mistake she made at 15! Tons of us make mistakes…somebody asked you this question about a 15 year old girl… which was a mistake! Next time, perhaps, dad should ask a woman how to deal with this issue. ~~Dee
