I'm not sure where this question goes on this site, but here it is. I really want birth control pills. I am 14 and not sexually active, but sometimes I think I might slip and let my boyfriend take my virginity. If that happens I know I'll need it. But it's not only for sex. Whenever I get my period there's very, very heavy bleeding, horrible cramps, migraines, etc., and they're severe enough that they interfere with my life. I've heard that birth control can help with that. Is that true? If it is, how can I get it? How do I approach my mom about getting birth control? She'll think I'm having sex, which I am not. Please help?
If you do get birth control pills, when you have sex please remember to use a condom to protect from STDs unless you are certain your boyfriend is either a virgin too or has been tested for everything
Also, that is true. There are many different birth control pills which help with different things, and there is one that seems to help with period pains. It is a well known fact so all you need to do is tell your Mum that you can't stand the pain and you've heard birth control pills can help.
