    The ones I've listed above can be picked up at a drugstore (CVS/Walgreens). The others in my experience require a prescription and I'm not sure about the parental consent with that. I've never been to planned parenthood either but I've heard they give that stuff out too. Obviously, abstinence works too, but since you're smart enough to ask about b.c. I'm sure you know how things work. Just try to read up on the natural family planning method too...to avoid your most fertile times in order to avoid unwanted pregnancy.

    Don't use the natural method alone!!! Just use it in addition to condoms or whatever you decide.
