Can someone under 18 get birth control pills?

Yes!

Someone can make an appointment at Teen Clinic and get started on any birth control method (including the pill).  During your appointment, your clinician will talk with you about your personal medical history as well as your family medical history. Then together, the two of you can discuss which method might be best for you. Then, the clinician will give you a prescription for the method you decide on.

If you are under 18, all of our services are completely free! If you are 18 or 19, Teen Clinic will base the cost of your visit on your income or however you are supporting yourself financially. With that being said, many teens’ services will still be free. For others, there may be a small flat cost for your services. This means that if you come in for an STI test and end up starting birth control too, you’ll still only pay the initial co-pay talked about at the beginning of the visit; no hidden charges! Even with some of our services requiring payment, the most a teen would ever pay is $50! The prices in Teen Clinic are discounted versions of what you might pay at our Family Planning clinic.
