You can let your parents know that it's time for you to start your annual gyn check ups to take care of your reproductive health and then talk to your gyn about birth control. While the visit would show up on your insurance bill, the prescription wouldn't, and you could pay for it out of your own pocket.
If you don't want your parents involved at all, you can search the internet or phone book for a free clinic, such as Planned Parenthood, near you.
