Hi,

You can get several forms of birth control over the counter - condoms, spermicides etc... If you are looking for birth control pills call your local Planned Parenthood. The link is below.

For your own online safety, it is not wise to put any personal information such as your zip code the internet is full of "crazy people" as well as us sane ones. : ) Perhaps you could EDIT your post and remove the zip code.

Even though I am 16 can I still get over the counter Birth Control Pills without my parents consent? I can't go to a Planed Parenthood bc there isn't one around here. If I can't get over the counter pills where could I besides PPH?

Hi,

Try looking for women's clinics in your area. You can also talk to your doctor and maybe even your parents?

Most parents would rather know their teenage daughters are sexually active and help them prevent pregnancy than be surprised by a pregnancy.

I know for certain PPH would give you birth control pills without your parents consent. If you call your doctor or a womens clinic ask them they do not know who your are. There goal is to keep you from becoming pregnant at 16 just like yours is.

Hi,

Either one would be an effective method of birth control and you will have to see a doctor for both so which one you chose is up to you. In the meantime I hope you are using condoms.
