Birth Control Exam

Question: I was wondering at my brith control exam is my boyfriend allowed to be in the room? Im really nervous and having his support is important to me.

Answer: Typically, the nurse sees patients alone for exams. If a patient is under 21, the exam will not include a full pelvic exam or pap test. The nurse usually does a visual check before administering birth control. If you’d really feel more comfortable, you can bring your boyfriend and explain to the staff that you’d like him to be there with you.
