i've been wondering this for a while? i dont really have a reason for asking this, but does a girl need consent from her parents to start the pill? or is there someway for her to get it without her parents knowing?

haha thank you

No, you don't need permission to get a prescription for contraceptives.

If you don't want your parents to know you cannot use their insurance to pay for it. Places like Planned Parenthood or your local health department frequently offer a sliding scale if you can't afford to pay full price.

That being said, I'm going to encourage you to be honest with your parents. It can be surprising how understanding many people's parents are so it's worth considering.
