    Advertisements



    UW for CK says
    pregnency(like a minor says i am pregnant and want to continue pregnecy ,don't tell my parents/what will u do? UW says,don't tell),STD,abortion,BCPs, don't tell parents,give it to minor.

    although i remmeber from step 1 that
    -give contraception,STD t/m ,life threatening emergency t/m without parents consent,but for pregnancy and aborton in a minor(not emanicipated) take consent of parents

    please make my concepts clear here.

    The laws:

    Give birth controll.... make sure there are no medical contraindications. If they list a selection of BC methods, always go with condoms. It's the only choice that protects against disease, and it doesn't require daily doses. It's also the only choice with no medical issues.... unless there is a latex allergy.

    For STDs... it doesn't matter how old they are, you don't tell anyone. Treat the kid and you are free to encourage them to tell a parent.

    For pregnancy, if they are 12 or older, you don't tell anyone. Again, you are free to encourage them to tell a parent.

    Abortion, 12 or older you can go ahead and proceed. Again, you are always free to offer advice.


    You won't have a case of someone under 12 on the boards, so... just go with above. Also, remember that no matter how old she is, once she is sexually active you always do a pap and pelvic!

    Whoa! I forgot... if they are under 12 or if there is something fishy in the hx, make sure to evaluate for abuse.

    FIRST. STD and pregnancy in a minor is prima facie evidence of sexual abuse until proved otherwise. It is not up to the physicans to determine but the legal authorities if sexual abuse exists.
    SECOND. One must abide by the laws of the State where they have a practice. Each state is a bit different. There is NEVER, EVER any excuse for a physican to break or circumvent the law. Laws exist in every state that makes it manditory to report STD.
    THIRD. It might be wise to investigate with the minor why they do not want to confide in their parents. Encourage the minor to confide in their parents unless it is a parent who is abusing the child; then you notify the authorities post haste.
