Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that it probably depends upon the laws of the state you live in.  Many states permit under age women to obrtain contraception without parental consent.  I would suggest that you call your local Planned Parenthood and ask them your question. They will probably be able to give you the correct answer.
Good luck!
