As important as it is to talk to your parents about everything, when it comes to sex, your mom and dad might not be the first people you run to with questions. If you have an open and honest relationship with your parents, then good for you! It’s important and healthy. Unfortunately, a lot of teens have problems going to their parents with topics like sex, especially when it comes to going on the pill. The worst part is that a lot of girls don’t want to talk to their parents about birth control pills, so they just avoid it and have unprotected sex, which is not the right thing to do.
Recently, user bobbideane made a post on our boards about wanting to go on birth control pills, but not wanting to talk to her mom about it. She wrote, “I am 17 years old and I don’t know what to do because I don’t want to ask my mom for it because she will know that my boyfriend and I have sex. The worst part is that I have sex without a condom all the time so I need it!!! But how???”
Well, first things first, you should not be having unprotected sex. Besides pregnancy, it can also lead to awful sexually transmitted diseases or infections. You should be sure to get tested, in addition to getting on birth control pills. I know talking to parents about this stuff is hard, so here is what some of our girls had to say about going on birth control without telling your parents.
