I am so sorry to keep asking all these questions.

But if I were to use protection which would be more likely to be more effective: Me using birth control? or my bf using a condom??


Also, is there any way to get birth control without a prescription?? I just dont want my parents to find out about my sexual relationship.

Thanks [Smile]

"Birth control" is a term that refers to all and any kind of method or behavior, not only one method. Condoms are one kind of birth control, for instance. Methods that require prescriptions or fittings are others.

How effective each of those methods are varies.

Besides a condom, what else can I buy over the counter (not prescribed by prescription)??

Take a look at that link, okay? It explains this stuff for you, including letting you see what methods you can get without a prescription. [Smile]

But you also can get prescription methods if you want them through Title X clinics without parental notification.
