I'm so confused: mere minutes ago, you just asked about trying to GET pregnant, saying you've been trying for months and wanting to know how to facilitate that.

well, we do watn to get pregnant and we were trying for months but then we decided we should wait til im 18 (which is only in 4 months), but i dont know, i want to know all the possibilities and everything until he and i are sure we are going to be together forever. There are many things going on with our lives right now, i just have so many questions that need to be answered!

I can't encourage you enough, given your other posts, to please be sure your feet are on the ground, here.

I hate to be a buzzkill, but nearly every young couple is "sure" of that, and most are wrong. In addition, I'd revisit that idea with someone who behaves so badly and begs to be a drug user.

That said, yes, you can get most forms of BC at your age without parental permission or notification. You can do so either via your GYN, GP or a sexual health clinic.

(But please, for the love of gawd, say you're also using condoms -- though given the pregnancy attempts, doesn't seem you are. In that case, do consider it: getting yourself sick for no good reason -- and that's much more of a risk with a user -- is just plain self-destructive.)

Before the past few weeks, he and i have been fine, but after i was in the car wreck things changed, we fought a lot and i had some pretty bad mood swings from the trauma of the wreck, and since then i knew having a kid wasnt the best idea for now and i have been wondering about BC and everything, but also the fact that b 4 that when we were trying to get pregnant and couldnt made me wonder also, like maybe we cant or im missing something in my diet (someone mentioned Folic Acid).

It's truly unlikely a woman your age has a folic acid deficiency that's a fertility problem.

Again, often it takes more than a month or two to become pregnant, especially if you have no idea when you're fertile. And drug and alcohol can make a big difference in the viability of sperm, (something in your other post you made clear was an ONGOING problem, not a new one).

Don't put your partner acting like an infant on you, by the way. His drug use and the way he behaves are HIS choices, not yours, and are not a valid response to a partner dealing with injury recovery trauma.
