How Old Do I Have To Be To Get birth Control In Michigan, Without my Parents Knowing?

Michigan is one of the few

Michigan is one of the few states where minors may not access many reproductive services without the consent of a parent, including birth control, abortion, or adoption. The only situation where a minor can access birth control is if she is married, as the state law confers the rights and responsibilities of adulthood to minors who are married. Minors may, however, obtain STI testing and prenatal care independently.

More information about minors and the law can be found at

If you are a minor seeking birth control, I encourage you to speak to a parent. This is an important issue in your life. Your parents were young once too, and you may discover that they are a good source of help and advice in this area.

Best regards,
