I'm planning to use an hormonal birth control, but how can i know which one is better for me, without side effects, i don't want to gain weight nor anything like that, keeping my face clear up, too. It's just because esthetic and i don't want my parents to know. Is there another non hormonal birth control beside the condom?

From this forum's FAQ:
Where do I get access to hormonal birth control methods?

To add to what the others have posted:

Non-hormonal birth control options could include a diaphragm or cervical cap for you, or other methods described on the chart linked to in the previous post.

The best person to talk with about birth control options is a doctor or clinician who specializes in them. Make an appointment, tell them your concerns, and let them explain your choices and options.
