The girl doesnt even have to see a gyn,she can see her regular doctor and he/she can do paps and std testing just as easily as a gyn can. Also a teen doesnt need her parents consent for seeing a dr as along as she is 14 or older.
A regular dr can prescribe BC just like a gyn can.
Though with either one has to be aware of insurance paperwork coming in the mail to one's parents. You can ask the doctor to word the report so that the parents dont know for sure what was done. Some doctors can be unserstanding of teens and parents reactions to bc and stds so they work with you on helping you.

At what age can a girl see a gynaecologist without parental consent if birth control and std's are the issue?
Actually there is a program out there called planned parenthood where you can go that doesnt take insurance forms or send anything to your parents about you coming in. Its a place to help teenagers who get into trouble or to keep them form getting into trouble. they also help with getting the day after and 72 hour pillls and PG tests and other such things.
they have a website I do believe and I am pretty sure they are available through out much of the USA
There is no age. You can get birth control at any age, really. If you go to your regular doctor your parents will get billed for the exam, so be aware that if you don't want them to know don't go to your doctor. There are tons of free/cheap teen clinics that will provide exams and birth control pills to girls without parental consent, and they cannot legally tell your parents. Planned Parenthood is one of the largest and most well known, you can check out their webpage for info on Planned Parenthood clinics in your area, or local free clinics.
Your doctor can, under no circumstances, tell your parents the results of things like pregnancy tests and STD tests. Your doctor can't even tell your parents if he's prescribed you birth control. Patient confidentiality is taken very seriously.
There are only two conditions where a doctor will reveal patient information without the patient's consent: one is if the information is subpoenaed by a court and the other one is if it's formally requested by an insurance company.
