Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that in the US, birth control pills require a doctor's prescription.  There is one exception and that is emergecy contraception which is available without a prescription if you are 17 or older.
I believe there may be some countries in Europe which permit birth control pills to be dispensed without an exam by a physician.  
Good luck!
Dr B
