There may be a Planned Parenthood near you, and some schools have clinics which are usually good places to be seen. It is good to start being responsible for your health care though, and talking about things is a good place to start. At 15, in most states you can see your doctor without her telling your mom, so call your doctors office and ask if you can come in without your mom knowing.
