I am seventeen years old. I have never had any form of sex. I have never been on birth control. I am going away to college in the fall and I want to have some form of birth control just in case, and I want it to be more than just condoms. My mothers health insurance would cover my birth control. My question is, how do I start a conversation with her about getting birth control? She is a bit of a prude, and doesn't like discussing sex.

It's tough to give an exact outline of how to have the conversation because we don't know you or your mom. Do you think she would be supportive even if she's embarrassed by the topic? Do you know how she feels about people using birth control in general?
