Q: Good Morning, I have a ? My daughter which is 16 recently went to have STD check, do to unprotected.

My husband took her and requested to have blood work done for STD, pregnancy test A urine can check for Chlamydia & Gonorrhoeae . They did blood work for other , but the Physician & staff ended up getting her to sign consent for Pelvic , if needed? Then he used a speculum on her & ended up checking her with a swab, multiple ones & made comments , while he was between her legs saying "boys don't love you and only want 1 thing".

A: And what is your question? If you meant to ask if you can sue, the answer is probably not; your daughter doesn't appear to have suffered any significant money damages.
