Hello everyone, I haven't really written a post here before except in my introduction thread a long time ago. I really just don't know what to do right now and I was hoping I could get some advice from you girls. I'm sixteen years old, and I live in the Eastern US. I turn 17 in November. I've been going out with my boyfriend, Patrick (who's 17), for 5 months and my parents really liked him a lot. I was put on an antibiotic for my acne earlier on this week and I started having symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection. I told my mom about my symptoms and she had asked me if my boyfriend and I had "done anything". I've lied to my mom about littler things before and it's made her totally lose trust in me altogether, so this time I decided I was going to suck it up and tell her the truth. At first I was a bit hesitant because we were out in public and I didn't think it would be the proper place to tell her, but she asked me to tell her the truth and after some prodding I told her that my boyfriend and I have had oral, but not sex. The first words out of her mouth were, "You're not allowed to see Patrick anymore." She went on telling me that I needed to go to get tested for STDs and whatnot, because I could have gonorrhea or chlamydia or something (I really think it's just my antibiotics), that she put trust in me and it was for nothing, my dad never liked the idea of letting me go over to his house so much where they couldn't supervise me. She also said that she raised me to be a "pure Christian girl who saved herself for marriage." She told me that everything she ever said about God she believed. I thought that by being honest with her she would respect me and work something out. But seeing as she hasn't spoken a word to me since that other than "We'll talk later this weekend." I'm not sure what to do. She didn't take away my phone or computer privileges yet so I was able to call my boyfriend and tell him the situation. He and I made a promise to each other at the beginning of our relationship that "As long as we both love each other we'll be together." He told me last night that he would stick to that. I'm just not sure what to do and I can't stop crying. I don't want to lose him. He's willing to wait for me until I'm 18 and there's a chance I can sneak around to see him but I really don't want it to be like this. Do any of you have some advice??? I'm so sorry for such a long thread but I'd really appreciate having someone to talk to, seeing as I only can talk to my boyfriend about it for now.
