You can buy Birth Control at any age without parental consent, just go and see your doctor, a pharmacist or a sexual health clinic. It depends on what state you are in, but it is usually 16 to 18. If you don't want to tell your parents (though your mom would prefer you be safe if you are going to have intercourse) you should seek the help of a friend or relative you trust that is old enough to get it for you. Always better safe than sorry. Just remember that the pill is not a substitute for a condom. pills don't protect you against sexually transmitted diseases. (Also, just because he denies it doesn't mean he hasn't slept with anyone else. I married a guy who swore up and down he never touched another while we were together. I found out a month into our marriage he was having other women in three different cities.) Keep yourself protected. Once you do get the pill, don't tell your lover. Make him continue to use condoms. This way you are double safe and more confident.

How can a minor get birth control without parental consent?

I would suggest that you speak with you doctor about obtaining BC. Many doctors will allow minor patients to be prescribed BC without parental consent. However, many doctors including myself, feel that having the support and consent of your parents is very important. If you are unable to get BC without your parents, and you feel that it would not be advantageous for you to tell them, I would suggest the use of other birth control methods. Take care.
