I would love to go on to the pill, just so if anything happens i will feel protected! But my parents are so strict and would not understand.-____- How did you talk to your parents about getting birth control?

You don't need your parent's permission to get birth control, but if and when a teen CAN talk to their parents about it safely, we will always vote for giving it a try. Sneaking around with sex and birth control can just be really rough, create trust problems, and make it a lot easier to have a sex life that isn't so great or where you feel really unsupported.

So, do you want to try talking to your folks first? If so, what have the conversations around sex been like in your household before now? Is there one parent you feel like you can talk to more easily than the other?
