Do I tell my dad I got an STI and PID? Watch

    My dad is a gynaecologist and has been qualified for over 30 years. I recently found out that I caught chlamydia from an ex boyfriend (condom split) and that I also developed PID from it. I've taken the antibiotics required but obviously my dad is an expert in this field.

    The problem is I come from an African Caribbean family, who as we know have the reputation of being pretty strict, and I'm questioning whether I should tell my dad or not. He's never really hit me or anything but he can shout when he's really angry, but he's often a lot calmer than my mum is. In fact way more calmer than my mum. I'm 19 going on 20 if that helps. Opinions?

    in some respects the benefits of his expertise, in this case, do not outweigh the potential backlash.

    as long as you're getting proper care with antibiotics and such, then you should be able to deal with this matter without upsetting your parents.

    then again, if you are open about this matter, they will get angry but then they'll see that you're an adult now, and you might find that your relationship with them evolves to a more grown-up level.
