The birth control pills should not be used after the age of forty. Most of the gynaecologist will not advice the same after 35 years of age.

No, you can get the birth control pill if you're younger than 16 as well. There really are no age limits.

Is normal. You have to get a doctor's prescription regardless of your age.

Just because they can get birth control does not mean they are allowed to have sex. Those are 2 separate issues. Statutory rape is when an adult have sex with a minor below age of consent in their state. The law is to protect children from that. A 12yo girl can get condoms on her own but no birth control she can use by herself. She would need parental consent and many do get on the birth control pill because it helps against severe menstruation. If you mean the morning after pill you have to be 15 to get it. In many state there is a close in age exemption where a 15yo is allowed to have sex. Even if it's not allowed in a state we are very well aware of that 15yo have sex and it is illegal but it's rare that there is a punishment attached to it. It's more important that the 15yo does not become pregnant. Birth control does not encourage to sex.

Hi my name is Xavier and the last time I checked you can get birth control at 17 without a parent because you are pretty much grown at this age, its just official at age 18. They have places like plan parenthood and other resource that provide birth control, condoms, and friendly conversation. If you are asking for yourself I am proud of you for wanting birth control, cause at your age I had gave birth to my first child!

There's no particular age. Some girls go on birth control pills as young as 12 or 13, even if they haven't had sex, to control problems with periods.

User Avatar

No, because Menopausal women are past their fertility age and can no longer have children. So in a way Menopause is its own birth control.

No, Catholicism does not allow artificial birth control. Catholicism believes the only reason or sex is to make children. Symptothermal and Standard Days methods of natural family planning are allowed.
