Why do I have to pee in a cup at the doctors


Hi there, welcome to Ask Pat. 

Thank you for your question. 

You are asking why you must pee in a cup at the doctors. 

We would not be able to give you a definite answer to your question as we are not medically trained to do so. Have you thought about asking the doctor this question or maybe your parents? You have the right as a young person to reach out and talk to someone, to be listened to and to be heard.
